|Armourfast Sdkfz 251/1 box art.|
Armourfast produces a selection of simple injection moulded plastic kits in 1:72 scale. These are priced at £7.50 (April 2011) for a box of two identical models. This line was started by HäT Industrie but now appears to be autonomous. Due to the simplification of components, the models are aimed toward wargamers rather than the scale modelling fraternity.
|The box contains two of these sprues.|
|Upper hull and track units.|
|Front Wheels and MG42s.|
To summarise, these models earn an unequivocal "thumbs up". They are nicely detailed, easy to convert and CHEAP! To decide between these models at £3.75 each or an over-scale resin and metal hybrid at twice the price is a no-brainer.
Finally, apologies for the photos, typically overcast day with 60w lighting.
Postscript: "Number4" at TMP has pointed out that whilst the half-track is suitable for the entire 41-45 period, the MG42 is not. This is quite correct. Source replacements if you intend using this in Barbarossa or Blau!
