An excellent model, with a high standard of casting and details, you only need to do a small cleaning, removing the excess resin in the windows, and could almost build it right from the box. In my specimen there were no air bubbles or warping.

In this kit model, you receive a full interior - just look at that floor - even with figures - basically clones of the Matchbox Sd.Kfz 11 figures, with improvements - in some good positions.

This model represents the standard version, made exclusively for the Wehrmacht, by the Ludewig Werke in Essen, from 1942 onwards. If you want, this model could be converted in an series of variants, namely Command Office, with some benches replaced by desks and radio apparatus, Mobile Hospital or even, Mobile Surgery vehicle.

As far as scale is concern, using the available data - at least the wheelbase - the overall dimensions are at 1:72.
