Here's another CoC France 1940 vehicle, this time the Army Group North Miniatures Sdkfz 10/4. I actually picked this model up quite a while ago when War Time Miniatures (not trading at the moment) were clearing out a lot of their 1/56 stuff so it was 'at the right price' i.e. really cheap. When I got my parcel which also included several Italeri infantry sets this got put to one side as with no instructions I had no idea to properly assemble the FLAK gun!
The half track went together easily and although I'm not a fan a vehicles with bases it was quite clever how the top of the vehicle fitted onto the base which had the tracks and front wheel assembly cast on it, all very neat and presented no assembly issues. Well done AGN Miniatures. The metal accessories fitted onto the half track easily. The driver has the steering wheel cast with him.
Pictures from AGN Miniatures to help with the kit.
My AGN Miniatures Sdkfz 10/4 assembled after a couple of years and awaiting paint!
Interestingly this vehicle isn't listed in the CoC 1940 handbook so I'll have to work out which unit types would have deployed it and it value in the 'Lists'. This is even more odd in that the Sdkfz 250 is listed when production only kicked in June 1940 so the chance of them getting to the front line by the 25th when the campaign concluded must have been extremely slim (build dates from the Total Details definitive Sdkfz 250 series of books).
More German and French 1/56 stuff to come soon including a couple of 3D printed vehicles! I have been pretty 'sniffy' about 3D vehicles I've seen on the net so let's see what I think now I have a couple in my hands!
