Plastic Soldier Company Sdkfz 251 / D 1/100 15mm

    Just in at Michigan Toy Soldier the latest addition to the ever-growing PSC stable the 251/D is the later war simplfied construction version of the iconic 251. This kit measures up very well compared to it's older brethern. Molded in a light olive color plastic and cast without any trace of flash and only the faintest hint of mold-lines this is one fine looking model. Replete with the level of detail that has become the standard for PSC this kit is a must-have for anyone playing late WW2 Europe in 1/100 scale. As always click on the pictures for a larger view.

it seems that they are starting to "phone-in" the artwork

uninspired but the colors look right

again, the full-page, magazine quality paper, instructions that are so primitive as to be silly

the box with contents

sprue side A

track and wheel details, very nice

crew figures that are in scale and look right with the vehicle

sprue side B

the accessory parts are very crisply detailed

a crew figure specifically designed to be firing the MG, a nice touch

ooh, ooh, look at the details!!!!

     I can't say enough good things about this range of figures and heartily commend the folks at PSC for continuing to bring out beautiful kits and excellent prices.

     Very Highly Recommended!         John
