The Kubelwagon is probably superfluous but I can always get a few motorcycle combinations later on for a fully mobile HQ section. I got the half-tracks and wagon already finished and only needing some minor repairs/touch-ups but the Recon Halftrack was a Blacktree Designs metal kit.
While I am reasonably pleased with the result, it was possibly the worst kit I have ever had to build. Firstly, its rough - very rough - and the parts do not fit together. Even the photo of the completed model on the Blacktree site doesn't - you can see the gaps everywhere.
On the plus side it comes with a good MG32 and 35mm canon options - I chose the latter - as there is not enough room for both in the cupola. I also added some track and tow bar to the front for further detail. The figures came in useful as I used one for the missing Kubelwagon driver which fitted well enough (with a bit of surgery) in the smallish wagon model.
Hans - vatch out fur zat verdampten Kfz du Dummkopfen!
