Hi Steve,

It will take a some time before i got it, have to come to the uk ( tankfest or maybe sooner )
I have to find out the covit rules to take the boat or train in France.

Also have to find out the electronics i need from Armortek to put in the sdkfz 251.
Hopfully i they can help me with the sdkfz soundcard and speaker that fit.

Best regards Yves

Hi Yves,
I picked up a unbuilt M2/M3/M16 kit from the same man on Friday and will have to contact Armortek for the option packs like you.
Hopefully this won’t be an issue.
Regards
Steve

Hello Yves,

congrats and a lot of fun building it up. 8)

Any chance for your help to re-build some missing front section sheet metal parts for my 251 Prototype ??
I got some sheetmetal Parts from Bodo allready some years ago now but some of the lower key parts are missing.. :-(
Armortek has no spares on that so to "copy" some untouched would be so great ;-)

Just taking some measurements would be of a big help allready

cheers,

Uwe

Hello,

Made some progress on the 251.
Today i put the front wheels - the sprockets and the torsionbars on the swingarms.
I flatten the grub screws so i can take out the swingarms ( for easy maintenance ) just take out the M5 bolts

Swingarms are now ready to put primer on
