Bonsoir Chaps,

I've got a fair number of various manufacturers' sdfz 250's and 251's which no longer have their machine-guns/gunners.

Grateful if you could point me in the direction of some kind manufacturer who makes these as replacements/upgrades.

Thanks in advance,

SHQ would be my shop of choice…


You'll need to scroll down to VP53 & VP54

It's 10 years since I bought from them, but I've yet to see anything better..

Xan MIniatures does 251 crews:

I've never heard of Xan before. Those figures look fantastic. They have a bit of the AB "cherub gazing into the distance" vibe, which I absolutely love!

Sorry, but am I missing the Xan guys manning MGs?

Are you set on something other than plastic? I am sure people who have PSC 251s are likely to have spare MG gunners… I know I gave loads away but might still have a few kicking round.

AB do superb SPW crew sets…

Bonsoir Chaps,

Thanks for all your help.

I've bought some AB ones and very pleased with those so I shall acquire some more.

Shall also buy some others for variety.

I've got a lot of 251s and 250s so should be a lot of fun!

I need gunners with the shield

There should be a few PSC shields around I'd have thought as many build the 37mm/75mm version, add the very neat AB gunner and there you go.
Might have a couple around somewhere myself.
