Kit Preview : 1/76 MMS SdKfz 250/1 alt


Based on a shortened Demag 1-ton half-track chassis, the SdKFz 250 equipped reconnaissance units. The /1 is the basic personnel carrier. The model represents the early version /1. Rommel used a /3 radio H/T called Greif in the desert. Here are some fanstastic pics of the interior of a 250: a restored 250, and a beautiful 1/35 model

If you have visited the 2 reference links above you noticed that the large box between the two front seats is missing.

I also have the Milicast resin version of the 250: judge for yourself

The two models have very different proportions. Milicast is wider in front with a narrow body, MMs the reverse. The rear door overhang is excessive on the Milicast model. The mIlcast front fender is too short. The radiator armor plate is the main difference between the two models. I think both got it wrong. Milicast is too wide and MMS too narrow. Here is a link to a 3 view drawing of a 250/9. Judge for yourself.
