I've been looking at the instructions of the SdKfz 250/9 kit... I currently have 2 of the SdKfz 250/1 Neu Kits, but have not purchased the SdKfz 250/1 Alte yet. The Instructions below show both kits for the SdKfz 250/9 using the Floorboard Part E22 in the building of both the SdKfz 250/9 Alte & SdKfz 250/9 Neu... Since the Expansion Kit SdKfz 250/9 has only one Part E22, can I assume I should use it in the SdKfz 250/9 Alte so as to attach the 20mm KwK 38 Autocannon to the Floor of the SdKfz 250/9 Alte and leave the SdKfz 250/9 Neu without the Floorboard?   :o

The instructions say that part 22 is only for the alte version.  The neu version didn't have the pedestal - the 20mm was attached to the (redesigned) turret.

Step 5 is for the neu, and seems to use the part E22 (without the step 2a holes).

I would just put a black painted rectangle of plastic card in the bottom of the hull. You probably cannot see past the turret gubbins. Unless you are Ripley and have opened the back door ^__^.

You're right, UVS - I've got the kit, but haven't built it.  But surely the floor isn't needed?

I agree it is not needed.

It would be an issue if you built the neu before the alte.

I should have listed the "Step Numbers" in my post, will do next time (IF there is a next time...).  Thanks Guys for the Replies! I was pretty sure I should save E22 for the Alte! I will do so now and not worry about the Neu! I plan on using my kits as Gaming Pieces so the rear hatch will be closed. I bought 3 of the 20mm KwK 38 Autocannon kits, 2 sets for the SdKfz 250/9 Alte & 2 for the SdKfz 250/9 Neu Kits and one set to convert the Warlord Puma to a SdKfz 234/1 until Rubicon does a "better" SdKfz 234 Series!  :o  I'm still hoping Rubicon will use the SdKfz 250 & 251 weapons expansion kits for the SdKfz 234 Series & Aufklärungspanzer 38(t) / SdKfz140/1  ;)
