Any recommendations for 15mm plastic reconn units? (armored cars, motorcycles, jeeps). Mainly looking for US and German forces and US retailer.

NWS Superstore has a lot of plastic kits.

But I don't see one jeep or US/German armored car.

Battlefront seems to be in the midst of re-doing their line in plastic, so maybe you just need to be patient.

Captain, Battlefront has a plastic Sdkfz 234 box. Plastic Soldier Company has the German Skdfz 250 box and the Sdkfz 231 box. Zvezda has the Sdkfz 222 and the Pz II. If your Germans can't find their way about with those assets then might as well make a strategic withdrawal.

Oh, and PSC have the M3 and M5 light tank boxes. Both Zvezda and Battlefront have the M3 again.

From my experience the PSC vehicles tend to be teeny bit smaller than Zvezda or Battlefront.

PS Remember also that you can have infantry recce teams.

I don't see on BF's site under plastics any German AC's.
Correction…I see a sprue, but no box sets
Maybe I'm blind?

'ere ya go


Sdkfz 234/1/2/3/4 and leftover bits can be very useful I put the Pak 40 on the BF Sdkfz 251 half track and the short 75 on a PSC Sdkfz 250.

You're killing me here, man …

Thanks, grossly overpriced especially if you include over seas shipping.
