Sd.Kfz. 251/3 (Funkpanzerwagen)

Building, painting and collecting armies is great but in order to complete the unit you sometimes run into important vehicles or parts that are not made in the appropriate scale. I was unable to find a suitable Sd.kfz. 251/3 command vehicle for my 2 armoured infantry companies. I decided to scratch build using a couple of Revel Sd.kfz. 251/1s.

I built a small fixture so that when I made the antenna from aluminum rod they were the same size.
