With Chinese New Year (Jan 28) coming soon, we had been busy working with the factory
rearranging our work schedule. Still have time to squeeze in another 250/251 expansion
set for your preview!

This is our single plastic sprue 250/7 & 251/2 81mm mortar carrier expansion kit. It comes
with an extra dismounted weapon team - a real Dollar Saver for the armchair generals!











Enjoy!
;)

There's also some ammo stowage, right?  Does this set also build the neu version of the SdKfz 250/7?

It looks more polished than Warlord's version.  Their crew figures are intended to match their plastic Grenadiers, but like most of their vehicle crew figures they look rushed and inferior to the plastic sets.

When are the remaining sets due for release?  I want a Stummel!

Looking back at:
http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=230.msg4484#msg4484
Are components E20 and E21 ammo boxes?

In your painted example there appears to be one empty box on the floor of the 251.

E 21 looks exactly like the portable 3 round  ammo boxes that came with my Tamiya 1/35 mortar team .  The shiny white plastic makes hard to see the details  ::) . Hopefully more than 2 boxes are provided for each vehicle .  If not , I'm sure it would be  easy for us  to  make a few resin / green stuff/ plastic card copies depending on our modelling skills .

This is going to be the last of the expansion sets for now.  Should be next quarter, that is Q2/17.

The 250/9 sprue will contain two turrets (early and late version).  With these two turrets, you can made a 251/23 or a 250/9 Neu -and- a 250/9 Alte.
