    I recently purchased this kit from the paper model store and was surprised that the instructions were not very complete. Thereis a site called "Johnny's papermodels that is very informative on this particular model is scale is 1/16 mine is 1/25 but the pictures rally help. You owe it to yourself to check out his site. Have a great day Garey

    "Lite" instructions

    Yes, the GPM instructions all seem a little sparse.
    I'm building their 1:16 Panzer III and have their (unbuilt) 1:16 Panzer IV.

    The instructions are light and there are many differences between the instructions and marks on the pieces as to where other pieces are to be placed.

    I've gathered some photo build reports of other like vehicles as reference but there'll still be some guesstimating.

    GREAT Greif Photo build at http://www.kartonmodell-forum.org/f...did=2453&sid=2c6317083858c7d7128955b22c13c59b
    It's in german but LOTS of great build photos.

    Some other good model photos at http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/vehicles-military-other-wise/506-sd-kfz-250-3-greif-1-16-gpm.html

    That is the same site I refer to above but check out his papermodel site
    for a lot of great builds

    I did look up "Johnny's Papermodels" but only found a handful of finished build pictures, not the step by step build - don't think it gets any better than that.

    I do see though that at the build I referenced, his name is Johnny.

    Johnny I want to thak you for taking the time to take and post the pictures of your build. I copied all of them on the grief and have them
    on a flash drive for reference . They are invaluable so much better than the instructions that came with the kit. Thanks again Garey
