Roden's 1/72 scale
Sd Kfz 233 is available online from Squadron.com
Although 1/72 is not my usual choice of scale, I
could not resist this one when it was offered for review as the Stummel
is one of my favourite wheeled vehicles.
Inside the box are four sprues of well-moulded
styrene, a set of decals and good quality instructions.
For a kit of its size I was very surprised with the
level of detail. The underside is nicely done with all the suspension
and drive train visible. This area offers plenty of potential for super
detailing freaks. The interior is also very well done with seating,
breech detail and machine gun. The exterior detail si good too, but the
grab handles are a little on the heavy side and would benefit from
replacement (using fine wire or similar).
Another plus is the decal sheet, which offers five
options. The decals appear to be of high quality on the sheet.
In summary, this is a top little kit that should
turn out a great looking Stummel withcareful assembly and painting.
