Sd.Kfz.250/1 Neu

Hi Folks,
Since Siim asked for it here is whats in the box. Very nice little kit. Bet this would be a "weekend edition" for Siim

Nicely done lower hull in one piece slide mold and separate sprocket mounts and sprockets.



So many weapons for such a small halftrack.



Decals in two sheets, nice photetch, DS tarp and metal width indicators all together very nice additions and Magic Tracks of course



These are main sprues with another lower hull but in few parts.



And in the end wheels that come devided in 5 pieces each wheel, glass parts, engine and tools.



That is all. Very very nice.

And now lets play with this kit.

Chris

I agree, it is an excellent kit!

I got this one waiting to get started. Trying to figure out wether or not to use all the Aber PE sets for the kit. At the moment Im leaning towards an OOTB build as its such a nice kit but at same time, with all that brass it will be an even nicer model!

With an open top, there's lots of areas where the brass will shine (no pun intended) such as the weapons racks, the MG shield, and of course the tool hasps. Depends how well the DML brass is done and how much it includes. If you're going to fill it with figures, much of this won't be seen, but if you're wanting a stand-alone model, oh slippery slope, I would go for it! Looks like fun, anyway.

Cheers
Scott Fraser

The new hull is a nice addition to this kit, I have one of the original releases and the multipart hull was badly warped. However, my concern is whether or not the gearbox is included. In the first run of the 250 neu it was absent, and I don't think I see it in your pics here...

I think the only thing about the transmission that is present is it's cover, part C19. I could be wrong tho.

Ah, come on Anders, go for the pe, then you'll have that one out of the way too! And there is plenty of help here

Nice looking kit. I got the old /5, /9, and /10. They're gonna take a moutain of pe and scratch, especially the /9.

I think it's the pain we all love so much .

Ok Laz...You are on! Now I just need to find the sets and hope it doesnt break the bank!

Any threads regarding soldering PE? With like 4 different sets I am pretty confident that I will need to know how to do this!
