Jagdpanther abteilung Sd Kfz 250 contest entry

Hello everyone, here is my Sd Kfz 250/3 from the 11th panzer division on the Eastern front(Ost Front). I had to completely rebuild the entire front suspension system in order to make it more accurate. The entire engine is scratch built from styrene ,paper and rubber. The interior is also scratch built , from the transmission to the seats and the back hatch. The steering wheel and the front radio set are from Panzerwerk.

The exterior has many components from Panzerwerk ie. the road wheels. Other external accessories are from Armorpax and 6th scale Icons. The distance markers, tool box, medical box and exhaust pipe cover are scratch built . It has so far taken me over a year to build and it is still not finished. I'm waiting for the awesome MwEc and SwS30 radios from sixty drver. Enjoy!

Hi, The frame antenna is from 6th scale icons. The top portion of the frame is made of hollow aluminium tube and the vertical supports are solid aluminium.

This is an amazing vehicle with more details than my model could hope for. The interior looks 1:1, down to the wires in the dash area...amazing!
The large fender bin looks amazing also. The ENGINE! WOW! it looks that with a little lighter fuid this puppy would turn over!
I was going to build a 250/3 with aerials and when I saw this one posted i realized I had to make a change of plans!
I left the aerial for a DAK piece I hope to make sometime his year...
