Andrew, do you mean to say that you've got one of these in your garage?

Hi Rick,

You mean you didn't know?!!! The missus has an Sd.Kfz.8 for shopping trips too.

Nah, I got my grubby paws on someone elses real one and did a photo walkaround as I was building an Sd.Kfz.7/2 at the time. They are much bigger than you'd imagine or more imposing I should say. I think they look a bit sporty too.

Andrew

Honestly, it wouldn't have surprised me if you did.

Now the only question remains: does DML beat Trumpeter before June?

I truly hope not as a rushed kit is a poor kit (regardless who makes it).

Truthfully, I'd like to see AFV Club try it.

Hey Andrew,

If you feel like sharing those images, there is a reference section on Planet Armor.

Spoiling Attack

Niko beat me to it, but how about this scenario: DML doesn't have to rush their kit to market to beat Trump. What if they come across with a believable release date, let's say September. By believable I mean accompanied by box art and/or sprue shots. IIRC Trump lost the Stryker battle against AFV Club, and then the sfh 18 skirmish with DML, at least considering overall kit quality.

After waiting THIS long for a new SdKfz 7 (I was in 5th grade when the Tam kit came out) and given a price competitive with the Trumpeter announcement, would you be willing to wait a few more months for what would most likely be a better kit?

If you're referring to the AFV Club release of the Sd.Kfz. 7, then the answer is a resounding YES!
