Sd.Kfz. 250 – recon vehicle for Battlegroup.
As situation on our tiny battlefields often demands support from recon units, and I suffered lack of them, some time ago I decided to build another recon vehicle. So there it is – german Sd.Kfz. 250/9 & Sd.Kfz. 250/10. I decided to build model made by Plastic Soldier Company, becasue it has two, big advantages: it is real pleasure to make it, because parts are well molded and good-fitting, and it comes with several options to build it from the kit parts. Also it is possible to have one main vehicle with replaceable turrets/armament – just like I did.
Historically note: Sd.Kfz. 250 was a german, light halftrack vehicle, produced since 1940 until 1944. There was about 6600 250`s produced, in different versions. Most popular was an infantry transport vehicle. Also there were many other versions, like radio and telephone vehicles, ammo transports, recon vehicles. My model can be equipped with a turret with 20 mm autocannon (for 250/9 ber.) or with 37 mm PaK 36 anti tank cannon (for 250/10 ver.).
It is painted with Tamiya acrylics, weathering was made with Pactra paints, AK Effects and some oil paints. Decals are form Italeri models.
