The kit

The SdKfz 252 were manufactured over “Alte” (old) chassis, the early model of chassis Anyway as the Alte chassis had small differences between each other, I had to modify the Tamiya’s kit to correct those details, apart from cutting the rear part to replicate the typical shape of the vehicle.


I started to assemble the running gear and hull according to instructions. I used a set of tracks from a Dragon SdKfz 250 better than the Tamiya ones.

They are narrower, this is why the external wheels don’t lean on correctly, but in spite of this problem, the Dragon tracks looked nice!!
