If we all put randem requests in we will get nowhere
although I'm on a US kick & my Favourite stuff is British
I think the best option for Hasegawa would be the Sdkfz 250 Ausf B series.
since they did a good job on the 251,
& they like to get 2 or 3 versions out of their molds.
(Troop, Mortar & Stummel?) might even get a pak 38 out of it?

What do you think?

1/72 German Sdkfz 250 Ausf B series Halftracks.

Cheers Elliott

with all the open topped German (and other nationality!!!) Self-propelled guns there must be a real need for specialty crew figures in plastic for them.
We have Aces great new Marder.........Maco's soon to be one and a plethora of Hummels, Bisons, ...............but no real crews in plastic.......
I know Hasegawa aren't reknowned for thir figures.but.....no harm asking!!!!!
Just a thought!!!!!

I can certainly see the value in a 250 Neu but,

how about an M5 stuart? number of variants could be made from common components, sure we've got the elusive mirage kits (kind of appropriately named)

I'm also a big fan of the M18 hellcat, its got a lot going for it as well.

Postwar? M41 would be great, used by the JSDF variety of users and conflicts.

Believe me I would love a M5 more than anyone,
I just can't imagine one from Hasegawa
since they have already done a M3A1 Stuart already
(& I would not like the M5 kit built up on the lower hull/wheels of their M3)

as for figures I think Italeri would be the most likey to do Tank crew or riders
since they have done the motorbike & anti-tank team sets.

How about a Crusader AA, either the twin 20mm or the Bofors mount?

Or perhaps some versions of the Universal Carrier?

Please dont ask for the M3 M5 M8 the chance they use that useless M3 they already have as a base is to great the we and up with a over scaled model and we are still sceaming for M3 next year.

Universal carrier or WW2 Japanese tanks would me nice something French maybe not sure yet need to thinkabout it a bit more
