Finished! Ungepanzerter MTW Sd.Kfz. 251

Finally got finished my MTW, just in time to get it on exposition at the Mosonmagyaróvár model show last weekend in Hungary. The Ungepanzerter Mannschaftstransportwagen Sd.Kfz. 251 was the rare, non-armoured initial production 251, used at first for training and afterwards as artillery tractors. I was inspired by one of the pics in the "AFV Photo Album" published by Canfora, which shows one just destroyed in Czechoslovakia in 1945. The original kit is the poor Sd.Kfz. 251 B from Zvezda, full of mistakes, specially an interior closer to a C than to MTW/A/B versions. Sadly, information about the MTW is quite scarce, far less at the time when building the beast, but I was decided to do something of it, even if not as accurate as I would had liked. Just hope Murphy's Law works now and a plastic company releases some good MTW/A/B models. You can see HERE the original build.
