Royal Model No. 270, Wheels for
German Sd.Kfz. 250, Flak 38 and Pak 35/36
by Frank De Sisto
Contains two resin parts. Price: unavailable.This is a rather simple
addition to not only the kits mentioned in the product description, but
also the following: Italeri/ESCI kits of the 7.5cm le.IG, 2cm Flak 30,
15cm NBW 42 and Sd.Kfz. 10 variants.
The two wheels are fully detailed and take advantage of the resin casting
process to provide full tread detail on the tires. The manufacturer’s
name (Continental) is crisply depicted on the sidewalls. The rear face
will need a hole for the axle CAREFULLY drilled out to fit the particular
kit the wheels will be mounted upon. There is not too much “meat”
here, so proceed with caution, constantly checking as you go along.
This accessory will prove useful to those that want every last little
detail to be represented, but due to its relatively high cost, may not
prove to be very popular.
Recommended with reservations.

sets, Chesapeake Model Designs (CMD) is the US Importer and distributor
