I like PSC models for wargaming (except for their SdKfz 251s for some reason). So the new vehicles in the 'printed' range look really interesting. Has anyone bought one yet? If so, what are they like? Do they fit in with the kits? Do they suffer from 'print lines'? I am keen to know.

Not what you are asking, but I do find it strange you don't like the PSC 251s. I think the /C and /D (and Variants) are superior to any other 1/72 fast build 251s (Armourfast, Italeri, First to Fight) and some of the best PSC models overall – far less "cartoonish" than, for example, the PSC US halftracks and Commonwealth halftracks with their exaggerated panel lines and chunky rivet detail, etc.

I think it is because I had already encountered the Dragon 1/72 251s and though they are more expensive, I liked the detail even though thy were for wargaming. Also, as the 251 is one of my favourite WW2 vehicles, I wanted the best looking ones. The PSC 251s aren't bad, the heart wants what the heart wants and sometimes there's no logic.

Yeah, me too, I still build proper 1/72 kits for my vehicles 90% of the time.

What's wrong with the First to Fight kits? Been contemplating getting them myself, so thoughts appreciated.

I do like fast kits from PSC, but im not going to buy the printed resin ones, I have a 3D resin printer, and if the future is 3D printed vehicles from the main brands, Im not gonna buy what I can print, and its cheaper and more easy to print and get STL files, also you can print as much u need and more.
I prefer that keep on going producing plastic fast kits, the ones they produced were superb for wargaming.
And PSC 251 D is my favorite

Here is an old WIP pic of 3 of my PSC 251/Ds with just base colours and no weathering applied next to a Dragon 251/D (farthest).

The only add-ons are a couple of tools and the rear MG mounts.

The details on the Dragon model are of course more refined but I think the PSC models look pretty respectable… :o)
