First Look

German Vehicle Radios WWII

This new resin and PE set by VLS (Verlinden Productions) is of German radio's used in numerous Wehrmacht vehicles during WWII.

The set comes in a zip lock type cello bag that is further inside a larger cello. A card shows actual photos of the sets radio's and racks assembled. A second card has photos of the resin parts trees and assembly line drawings instructions. However, these instructions are not very well done and leave some questions. One question is: where does PE part number three go? An example of how these radios would go in a Stug. III Ausf.G is shown. However, these radios are appropriate to go into the crew compartments of many other German vehicles as well.

The casting of the resin parts is very good. The resin radios will have to be removed from the pour blocks that they are on. There are two of these blocks, with six radios on each. The brass PE fret holds several different racks for mounting these radio's on.

I plan to use these radios to dress up several different open-compartmented German vehicles that I have on the back burner of my work-bench.
