First Look

Plus Model has released another interesting conversion. This set contains resin and photo-etched parts to convert Tamiya's Sd.Kfz.250/3 kit into the mobile command post. This set contains a complete new upper hull, new open rear bay, and features a new interior, complete with radio sets and antennas. All of the resin parts are free of air bubbles and are nicely detailed.

Sd.Kfz.250/3 NEU Conversion

From what I can gather from the instructions, about all of the Tamiya kit you'll use is a portion of the lower chassis frame, the wheels, track and suspension. The rest of the project is contained in this set. The front fenders are photo-etched to provide that extra sense of scale thickness. The upper hull, and interior fittings are cast in thin tan resin which is easy to work with.

My sincere thanks to Plus Model for this review sample!
