|G-05 Steyr 1500 A|
Unfortunately (for me), all the tanks in FiB come with bases, so they wouldn't suite my army. Therefore, I decided to buy some "soft vehicles" as Panzergrenadiers Company HQ transports - Steyr 1500A cars.
In the blister (£7.65 at Mealstorm) you will find 3x Steyr 1500A cars and 6x crew members. The cars are casted in resin - very beautiful models in my opinion. FiB uses a little bit different resin than Battlefront. It is white and little bit softer. I also found that it is more difficult to glue things to that kind of resin.
All the models look the same, so I decided to customize one of the vehicles by adding a petrol can.
Although models are really pretty, I was rather disappointed when it cames to crew figures. They have really strange looking helmets, which make them look more like firefighters than WWII german soldiers (for Star Wars fans they will also recall the picture of rebel soldiers I think ;).

Battlefront vs FiB
I haven't had a chance to compare Battlefront and FiB Steyr models face to face. I will try to update this sections as soon as I will have a chance to do so.
Right now I'm only able to give you dimensions of the model:
- length: 4,5 cm
- width: 2,5 cm
- length: 4,7 cm
- width: 2,1 cm
- height: 1,7 cm
