Thanks for the review, gentlemen!

I know Zvezda's early 251's, because they are the only company, who makes them!
In the review it is stated that the kit has some accuracy-issues and that it is suited for a beginner, who doesn't care to much about that.
The accuracy-issues are true, but I would not recommend this kit for a beginner, as there are plenty of fit-issues too! (see my Eckinger-build for the Eastern Front-campaign)
You need to know a bit more about modelling in order to get this one done, but when it's done you'll have a great looking Sd.Kfz.251 in your collection!

Great review!

Ive been holding off getting one of the auf B ones as my gut feeling was telling me to stay away. I hope that AFV club or even Dragon comes out with a B at some point soon. I want to do a Afrikacorps vehicle at some point.

In the meantime, guess ill have to build the auf C and D variants stashed in the closet!
