I'm looking for factory patterns of the SdKfz 251-series. I presume that there were different factory patterns around. What did they look like. I would really be helped by sketch showing all four (or five-above) sides.

AFAIK only one has been identified so far. This Russian captured Driling is a perfect example:


More views of the LEFT side at Panzerwrecks X Pages 52-53 and of two different 251/22 at Panzerwrecks 6 Pages 44-45.
Unless someone could find several pictures of the same vehicle from different angles making a 5 view drawing would be risky...
Moreover it would be useless, the EXACT camouflage scheme of late 234 vehicles was drawn several years ago and still today people paints their 234/4 in fancy soft edged schemes...So why bother?

Scroll down to the bottom.

Btw, the well known pics of IR equiped 251's also seem to show the/ a factory pattern.

That model is a very nice rendition of the camo. May I ask where did the author got the right side scheme? There is a picture of the right side a 251/22 in one of the Panzerwrecks (Pw X 54-55) showing the same scheme...
