Once again, good well balanced review Darren. I will be looking to get one of these as well. I don't know why manufacturers don't provide interiors for the box bodies, but none of them seem to. Contrast with the Bronco(?)British ACV which has a full interior. IBG do provide separate interiors for their German trucks, but they are resin and very expensive. Why?
The AHN vehicles were widely issued to the Wehrmacht and Waffen SS. There are photos of these vehicles in use in Russia by the Wiking division, and they feature prominently in "Ruckmarsch - the German retreat from Normandy" by the After the Battle people. Any unit raised or based in France had stocks of these. BTW ambulances were sometimes completely whitewashed in Normandy to mark them out.

If you use the parts stated as not used then you do have a basic starting point. I stand by the call for ICM to consider either including an interior or making it available as a stand alone product, perhaps with some figures.
Thank you for your positive comments.
