Since DML released their "surprise" kit #6100, there have now been a number of variants which have been produced as well. The latest is the /9 version, which mounted a 2 cm open topped turret of the same style as used on the Sd.Kfz. 234/1 armored car.

To their credit, DML has listened to many modelers who have complained about their free use of Italeri molds, and this kit does NOT reuse the turret components out of the 234/1 kit. The kit appears to be of the same high standards as their earlier versions (the 250/1 and 250/8), and DML have also announced a 250/3 radio command version to follow (they call it "Greif" after
Rommel's desert version on the Alte chassis, but it should not be that vehicle).

Only one set of decals is included and one version given in the painting instructions. Still, this is not a common version of the vehicle, and I imagine good info on more than one or two specimens would be hard to locate.

Overall, a nice little model of a neat little vehicle.

Thanks to Freddie Leung of DML for the review sample.
