Hello,

IÓm searching for drawings for a ammunution trailer, the one behind the
Sd.Kfz.252.

And is there a cheap kit for the wheels of the trailer? I have read somwhere you
can use the trailer from a Tamiya Flack?

I scratch built my trailor using a spare 2cm flak gun trailer.

In the Sturm and drang book on the StuG III and SdKfz 250/251 are some good shots which I was able to Guesstimate the sizes, rivets, hinges and other details quite well. Its a shame I dont have a scanner or a digital camera (or know of any friends that have them) else I could show you my results.

For the 252 I used the tamiya SdKfz 250. I left one of the hatches open with a crew member leaning out of it. One thing I would say is, It is more difficult to interior details of the 252 and how the shells were stored and where other interior itmes were stowed.

If anyone out there has a BMP or JPG with the interior of the 252 I would appreciate a copy, or if you could scan a piccy in for me that would be great.

Cheers All.................

Scott.
