Announcement: Sd. Kfz. 251/1 Ausf.D

You wished it! You get it!
After we released some similar vehicles in 1:35 scale, we often received the request for a good 1:16 scale kit, as there is no adequate one on the market yet.
The kit will be delivered by us around the end of September 2023.

You can find more information and pictures here:
DW16005 Sd. Kfz. 251/1 Ausf.D

Best Regards

    Hello !

    Are you thinking about releasing panzer grenadiers, paratroopers, and other German infantry figures?

    Hmmm! I wonder if my message to you some months back about possibly producing the 251 had anything to do? Well if not, I am still happy about your upcoming release. I preordered two from Andy's Hobby. A couple more suggestions for possible future kits in 1/16th scale that I think will be a hot seller, would be a BMW R-75 and a Flakvierling 38.
    Thanks for all the great kits!

    I was wondering if you are thinking of producing a panzer II Luchs in 1/35 scale. I'd be very happy for more early German Armor from WW2. Thanks for listening.

    Great news! Wonderful 251! Now I dream at 1/16 Matilda, Queen of desert....

    I bought this kit instantly. Really happy to see this in 1/16 scale. Hope more other 1/35 models will be released as 1/16. Like a Sd.Kfz.7, Pak40, M1918, RSO/01, Faun L900 and stuff like those.
    Keep on doing the great work!

    Excellent news - although this will mean a dip in my finances in the near future. Now that you are expanding your offering in the 1:16 scale, could you please consider producing an Opel Blitz in 1:16 scale? Sorely missing one!

    The review link certainly looks amazing. This is an excellent choice of vehicle in this scale. Although storage is an issue at 1/16, the level of detail makes 1/35 look toy-like. It's really hard to go back, perhaps I won't.

    Sd.Kfz. 7, Sd.Kfz. 221 on the scale of 1/16

    Splendid kit, but the instructions are far from perfect ! Too many opportunities to do building errors because of an obvious lack of clarity in the drawings...Too bad.

    I bought it right away, but was too busy to get to it until now. I agree with Pascal, after studying
    the directions. Sure I can work thru it, but looks confusing. Built the PZ3 and the assault gun
    with minor confusion, so hoping for the best. Love the 16th scale.

    I now have the Sd.Kfz.251 on my modelling bench. Although I would echo that the drawn instructions are complex, I'm not that bothered about it - because -

    Well gents, this is 1/16 - it IS going to be more complex. If we want the detail we have to pay the time premium of doing more dry runs and figuring out what it is we are trying to build.

    It's a challenge - I accept it. :)

    PS/ you could just review Andy's Hobbies build where he give some assembly advice:
