AFV Club 1/35 Scale (item. AF 35S50) German Sd.Kfz. 251/3 Ausf. C half-track

The new Command half-track from AFV Club is here!




This kit uses the radio sets from the “Ausf. c/ 17" command vehicle (item AF

35117), but provides a total of 27 new parts, including the unique 251/3 radio aerial and a

set of 12 jerry cans in two different styles, a boarding ladder, and a portable generator. Basically all of the radio parts from the earlier (2005) kit are also included, so you'll have plenty for the spares bin.

Construction is the same as the other 251 variants from AFV Club, starting with the suspension and lower hull.





Locating pins set the torsion arms at the correct angle.
