They are seated on the long bench on the left side of the vehicle, behind the driver. As they are using the Enigma they are leaning somewhat forward, making the interior look even more cramped.

Thanks! That should provide a good starting point as its not complete: the Command version that I've seen Guderian standing in had much more racked com gear including an Enigma terminal and two operators sitting on stools (?) in the center walkway. I guess equipment levels varied by need and availability.

ICM has announced the command variant aswell, which should be released very soon, i would guess that you could make Guderians vehicle quite easy from it;

That was supposed to be "center point of a dio..." but I goofed on the typing.

Thank you for the review Darren, and yes, I do believe that ICM is currently the only plastic 1/35 scale kit of a 251 Ausf "A". Oddly enough Dragon announced one over a decade ago but never brought it to market for reasons never made clear. Darned. The combination of the figure set with this vehicle is perfect as I always wanted a Guderian command-version "A" as the enter point of a dio and now perhaps I can finally do it!
