Fantastic news of two new variants of the Sd.Kfz.7 with the 37mm Flak guns!
Well done Trumpeter .
#1 is the 3.7cm Flak 37 auf Selbstfahrlafette (Sd.Kfz 7/2 LATE Version)



#2 is the German 3.7cm Flak 43 auf Selbstfahrlafette (Sd.Kfz.7/2)

Holy crap! Now I REALLY have to push my old Tamiya 7/2 to finish! Maybe DML will rush one box art as well soon enough

Yeah, I have the Tamiya one too

But I'm probably gonna pick one of these anyway. Would be interesting to know the price....

I really like the boxart by the way...

Well, at least it hasn't taken Trumpeter 30 years to release more than two versions of the half track. Lookind forward to the Sdkfz 7 late and these two 37 mm gunned Sdkfz 7s! Has anyone noticed Dragon are doing the same variants as well?
Are there any photos available of the Flak 43 armed version as I've only seen a couple?

I sold all my older Tamiya kits when all these new ones from Lizard, and others, came out [even if not correct, like the 251s, they are a lot better than Tamiya's '70-'80 kit range ]. The Tiger I range from Tamiya is still worth a look.

I really wonder where the Sdkfz 7 for pulling the 150mm cannon is? Lizard said they would get it out to the market but...........

I see that there is now a "line drawing announcement" of a Sd.Kfz 7/2 from Liz and I hope they go through with it.

Coops,
Looks like the a 7/2 w/ a 37mm Flak 37 and armored cab from Dragon is for-real and scheduled for a June release:

And so the Dragon/Trumpeter "mine's bigger than yours" contest continues...

Hi Holeshot (Curt ).

I remember in the old days when we had years to work out a kit and all it's little idiosyncrasies, now it's look out here comes another one . I'm getting better at not buying everything that hits my LHS.
Two shots of the project .

I see we will get a late 20mm quad, Sd.Kfz.7 and an early 3.7cm version Sd.Kfz.7 from Trumpy in the next few months [in shop around October with any kind of luck].
