Hey everyone. Ive started another build. This one is the bronco kit for the SWS UHU. It’s a fictional vehicle thats kind of being maketed as real. There was a Sdkfz 251 UHU, but not an SWS one. Theres plenty wrong with the kit. There is a beautiful engine. However you can’t really leave the bonnet open because of 2 issues. 1) there’s no internal firewalls or ancillaries ,2) a night vision drivers optics actually prevents it being fitted and open. In the 251 UHU the entire forward 3rd if the rear compartment was taken up by a generator for the light. Mans whilst the sWS comes with a pretty smart rear compartment.. there’s no generator. So that will be scratched. Involving the removal of the radio equipment and the antenna attachement. Relocated to the rear of the vehicle. The kit does go together fairly well. But the PE is a bit fishy. The bits around the front drive sprockets don’t actually fit... they are too short so I’ll have to come up with something there. And some of the instructions take some guess work. some nice details... all of which will end up covered up :-( such a shame!! faiy nice driving compartment engine additions The afore mentioned 251 UHU generator reference photo sticky mirror places inside the searchlight because yes this one will be fully lit up!! So far I’ve fitted 7leds!
