Good review, Shaun!

My one quibble would be the claim the Sd.Kfz.7 pulled all German artillery. The Seven pulled mostly the 88 and the sFH 18 from all I have read and seen in photos. The 17-cm K 18, for example, weighed over 50K pounds when limbered, far beyond the 8 tons towing capacity of the Seven.

Good review, Shaun! I have this beast in the stash waiting its turn. As I'm working on its towing buddy (the sFH18) this one is obviously next in line.

Good review, thanks for that. I read the initial review of it on PMMS which wasn't encouraging but I see that has now been ammended so with this review it confirms this as the right choice to get for a tractor for the Dragon SFH18.

I agree that this a very nice kit. I have one in my latest purchases. And I can't wait to get my teeth into it.
