Canvas Cover No.1 & No.2
Sd.Kfz.251 Ausf.C

1/35th set No 376, 377
Review by Terry Ashley

These two sets have a single resin part in each for the canvas bad weather covers which could be fitted over the fighting compartment when needed. The parts are cleanly cast in the usual light grey/green resin with just the casting block to be removed.

Set #376 has a folded cover extending over the two rearmost tilt covers and included the seam detail and realistic folds and sag of the canvas to add a nice variation on the finished kit.

The cover fitted perfectly to the Dragon hull top for the easiest of additions.

Set #377 has the cover folded back over the rearmost tilt cover to expose the entire interior and again has good seam details and realistic canvas folds.

The fit to the kit required some minor trimming on the inside of the forward lip to fit over the hull sides, but this was very minor and test fitting will show if your cover needs any trimming.

Both sets are nicely detailed and add a new “feeling” to the kits and are perfect for a winter setting.

The sixth set #373 is replacement front wheels which unfortunately I don't have at this time but should be able to review at a later date.
