Areas of use: The Sd.Kfz. 231 8-Rad was used on all fronts of World War II, including the Eastern Front, the Western Front and in North Africa. Its main task was to reconnoiter enemy positions and collect information on their troop movements.

      3D SLA printing
      In grey to paint yourself
      Scale: 1:56


      The miniatures come to you unpainted and some of them have to be assembled by yourself - a little superglue can work wonders here! Sometimes there can be small residues or slight damage from the support structures, unfortunately these cannot always be completely avoided. But don't worry, this does not affect the quality of your model.

      However, it should be noted that due to the 3D SLA printing process, slight distortions (up to 1mm) may occur on larger parts. However, these small imperfections are easily fixed with modeling filler (Green Stuff).

      It's just a small part of the process that gives your set a unique character. Have fun painting and assembling!

      Although the figures are inviting to play with, it is important to remember that they are not suitable for small children. There is a risk that small parts can break off. Miniatures should not be considered toys.
