I'll take 4!
Seriously, I was about to buy one of these in resin ;)

Then you should buy as many as you were willing to spend on resin. Proof of sales is what Vulcan Models needs now. I am sure some Beutepanzer versions should follow.

Well, I purchased multiple copies of their motorcycles, the steib sidecar was great!

If they want to send me a review version I would be happy to do a build review for planet armor ;)

I would still buy a couple for myself if coarse...

cant post a private message to you sharkmouth
If you have contacts at vulcan I would LOVE to do a test build/review of this guy. I would not have a problem sending the built model back as well. I love the fact that small manufacturers like vulcan and vision are doing interesting and odd subjects, or tackling stuff that you can only find in resin.

I cant wait for someone to make modern kits of ww1 tanks!

Thank you for the post.
Always liked this AFV and thought to scratch-build one in a large scale like 1/16th.
Take care.

If they follow Miniart's example the Beutepanzer will come out first which drives me nuts but hey, it's the nature of the beast. I am definately getting one of these guys those provided the price is not prohibitive.

Even if they do release it as a captured version I am making mine for king and country ;)

I know the adage "German sells" but hasn't that changed somewhat? There seems to be a surge of allied models the last few years. Miniart was testing the waters, but I remember a LOT of those beutpanzers being painted up Russian!

schlichtr 06-23-2011 08:48 AM

I seem to remember that when Miniart came out with their T-70, SU-76, Dingo and Valentine that the beute versions came out first or followed the first release very quickly. I could be wrong though. I do see the marketing though as most of these new allied vehicles coming out can easily have the Balkenkruese placed on them and rereleased as Beute vehicles. I really don't care as long as I get the version I want and in this case one used by the Britished AEF in France (they did use these in France right?).

Thanks for the replies.

Review samples are very rare for Vulcan. I only know of Terry Ashley getting a sample for sure. I possibly may as I write for several sites and will probably post sprue shots here if I get one.

The first release is Allied. The Beutepanzers will have to wait as removal of the turret will show an empty interior. The Becker SPG conversions would require a new mold cut for the 10.5cm gun which I doubt will happen.

Keep an eye out on PMMS like I will!
;)
