Hello,

As already announced I also tried to realize the SPG of the 8.8cm Pak on the SdKfz 251.
According to literature it is not really clear, which Pak version they wanted to combine
with the halftrack. Most likeley it was the one you will see on the first four picture, however
there is also the chance that it was thought about mounting the Pak 41 on the rear of the vehicle.

Nevertheless, both options would fully overload the SdKfz 251 and firing would be feasible
only straight foreward, if at all ...

Cheers

Excellent models - although the gun looks way too big for the halftrack mounts! The version with the 7.5 cm L70 gun was also very well done.

Hello Kevin,

Thanks for the feedback. As mentioned, this combination really has been tested and proves, that the Germans had a real tendency to "think big" at that time - this is the kind version. Other may say, they were totally crazy!
