ESCI 1:72 Scale Vehicle Review

German Sd.Kfz. 250/10 Armoured Personnel Carrier with 37 mm PaK Anti-Tank Gun, 1:72 Model Kit ESCI 8373

Sd.Kfz. 250/10 was the platoon leader vehicle of the armoured reconnaissance platoon of the Panzeraufklärungsabteilung. The recce platoon consisted of six infantry half-squads carried in Sd.Kfz. 250/1 armoured personnel carriers, and one Sd.Kfz. 250/1 or 250/10 for the platoon leader. Crossfire players may want to mount infantry elements of the armoured recce platoon on half-squad figure bases similar to those used by the Squad Leader boardgame. The 250/10 shown here has been sprayed in a camouflage pattern of dark yellow, chocolate brown, and olive green. The crew figure is a 20 mm Raventhorpe Panzergrenadier radio operator. ERTL re-released the ESCI kit of the Sd.Kfz. 250/10 with more detailed polystyrene track sections to replace the old soft plastic tracks.
