Not aware of another in 1/72 scale so probably the RS kit, there is a single seat open fronted version. This is the one used as artillery observation in 44/45 on the eastern front.

Prompted me to look it up. This is a B2 version , this was the designation for a two seater ,used by the Kriegsmarine and as an artillery spotter. It did see action ,particularly on the Ost front. Again nice bit of unusual kit. cheers John

I know it's 1/72nd scale, (as that's close enough to 1/76th, which is my preferred scale Leon), and it was in a white plastic...but still don't know where it is Carl!!! :?

Carl, re-arrange these words into a well know phrase or saying, then get your lass to demonstrate it: Lug, the, clip, around. :lol:
