New announcements from Trumpeter this month, and the theme seem to be towing artillery.
The first two announcements from Trumpeter have a common theme, a Sd.Kfz.8 and a Komintern Artillery tractor. Also included are a couple of wheeled vehicles to include the interesting looking Italian Puma and the Soviet UAZ. And to top of the the month, 3 new track sets.

01583 - Sd.Kfz.8 Schwerer Zugkraftwagen 12t
05540 - Soviet Komintern Artillery Tractor
05525 - Italian PUMA 44 Wheeled AFV
02327 - Soviet UAZ-469 All-Terrain Vehicle

02049 - E-100 Track links
02050 - T-72 Track links
02056 - Strv103 late Track links

No release date as of yet, but stay tuned to Armorama.

Great news, Kevin! That's a wrap (as they say in the movies) with all the major Wehrmacht half-tracks now in styrene. Trumpeter had already released the Late War armored cab version, so it's good to see the "vanilla" prime mover out now, too. I'll be getting one for sure.

I wish the this one would have come out before the armored cab, then maybe the armored cab would of had a radiator in it. Do you know how hard it is to find a picture of a Sd.Kfz.8 radiator, especially inside the armor..

Frenchy? Are you lurking?

Yes I am Bill I had noticed Kevin's earlier request for such picture but found nothing useful so far ...The search's not over ! Frenchy

It is not an easy task, I have tried a few searches. I guess no one thought a radiator would be so important?

Trumpeter has also, at some point, released the STRV103B early tracks. I never saw an announcement for them on any web sight. They are in stock at Sprue Brothers: TRP02055 1:35 Trumpeter Strv103 Early Workable Track Links #2055 MSRP $35.00 Our Price: $27.99 Other shops probably have them also. They are just like workable Model Kasten with the assembly jig and the little pins that fit into each side. IMHO they are a step up from the tracks that come in the kit. Best regards, Leroy
