Dragon Models has released a Sd.Kfz.252 Munitionswagen with trailer, and here Kevin Brant has a look in the box.

Just ordered one of these the other day and am eagerly awaiting its arrival after only, oh, a decade or so of waiting! To say that I'm pleased is mildly put! Reviews like this are SO appreciated by builders like me who hate falling into poor instruction pitfalls that Dragon is so good at. Its almost as if they're concerned about the cost of an extra page or two of paper that would make the instructions clearer. For what a kit like this goes for it would be nice if Dragon at least proofed the instructions and maybe made the instruction drawings LARGER!

I had an observation that I wanted to add here: why is the box-top artwork different than that depicted in the catalog? I was so startled to see this different artwork that I actually thought that Dragon had already released another variant! Sad but true...

Just completed building the 252 and, after building lots of Dragon's armor kits over the last 10 years or so I must say that this one was a disappointment. The instructions were frequently incorrect (parts mislabeled or omitted entirely from the instructions). Additionally, I made the mistake that parts labeled as "not being used" in the instructions was correct. Nope! nd, as mentioned in another review...the ammunition storage for the sd kfz 250 itself was wrong; i.e., rounds were stored vertically; not horizontally.
