The Rubicon Models SdKfz 250/3 and SdKfz 251/3 expansion set provides modelers with the parts needed to transform their existing SdKfz 250/1 and SdKfz 251/1 kits into the communication variants used by the German Wehrmacht during World War II. This expansion set allows for the creation of historically significant command vehicles, including those famously used by Field Marshal Erwin Rommel.

Historical Background
SdKfz 250/3 and SdKfz 251/3: These were communication variants equipped with extra radio equipment and antennae for command purposes. The most famous of these vehicles is Rommel’s command vehicle, "Greif," which was widely documented in German newsreels.
Eastern Front: These vehicles saw extensive use on the Eastern Front until 1944. The distinctive large Rahmen (bedframe) antennae made them easily identifiable, which later led to the adoption of Stern (light aerial) antennae for better camouflage and survivability.
