Roden Sd. Kfz. 263 Armored Car in 1/72 Scale

Another Roden 8 Rad, this is the Sd. Kfz.  263, intended as a radio car for reconnaissance units.  This kit shares most of its sprues with other Roden 8-rad kits.  The covered compartment is addressed with a separate cap, which results in a seam not visible on the actual vehicle.  Eliminating this seam would result in the loss of the raised detail so I left it alone.  The radio antenna is delicate and more than a bit fiddly to install, mine came with a break which was difficult to repair.

  1. Very nice, Jeff! Funnily enough I have the Plastic Soldier 263 and it has a one piece upper body but still has a small seam line moulded in – I’m pleased you said there shouldn’t be a seam, since I thought it was me that might have been wrong about that!
