It looks like the company did some in depth research on this truck. The detail photo look really good. The more the Better.

The IBG staff answered my question about the expected release data for the artillery tractor and the tank transporter with 'June and July'. The IBG Staff actually is very responsive to questions forwarded via their Messenger and Facebook account. A lesson to be learned for quite some other modeling cies. I picked up my recovery vehicle last week. And I got a box full of fun for an acceptable price: 40. The only question I encountered so far is the cable over the crane beam: I presume that it should be wound around the axle of the winch in the middle a few times. ( like at old water lock doors.) Only than it is possible to shift the beam back and forth. The detail with the motor cover side plates can be solved by heating them carefully in very hot water and bend them inwards.

Today I started the build of the first parts of this crane. From IBG I received per Messenger quite some detail pictures from the framework and brake system at the back. However, I have still some open issues to solve. The internet doesn't show anything about the brakes. The instructions are quite clear, though in some cases the exact location needs to be figured out by dry fitting. E.g. The reinforcement (PE8) on the crane beam. Also it would have helped a bit more if the photo etch fold form would have been printed on the instructions. Now it states 53 degrees for the mud guards. Quite some puzzleing! In case the silhouete would have been printed one could follow the lines without any difficulty. Must be rather easy to solve in the next batch of instructions!? The same for the back side of the seats, which need to be curved. The parts are very well connected to the beam, so transport damages are near to impossible. Though this creates quite some spots which need further trimming. With a good scalpel or knife it only means more time for scrubbing and scratching! Due to the fact that I am going to paint quite parts some in detail I didn't follow the instruction steps. First a overall coat of olive drab Vallejo Model Air 71.316. Thereafter the details. Since there is quite some wooden planking on this model I scratched the structure in the cabin floor. I will create some wear and tear on the floors, but there will certainly not be any over weathering!(What was under the olive drab?) These vehicles were well kept by their crews, who wouldn't allow extreem rust or layers of mud. My build will be a SV2 from 22nd Armoured Brigade, workshop REME of the 7th Armoured Division in June 1944. Just after the landings, so all second line equipment was still spic and span! As a driver I tried the Miniart UK guy. Without the cushion he is able to reach the pedals. But with it...... Here the Dremel will have to do some carving to get it fixed. 'Luckily' one can not see too much of it since the doors are moulded 'shut'. All together, if one doesn't care too much about the details of cabin and window this kit certainly gives a lot of fun and can be turned in something really nice. And let's face it: that is what modeling is all about, I guess. Having fun. And, yes, I will try to upload some photos. (1954 Dummy with hardly any computer knowledge)

Am I correct when I paint the differential housing of this crane white at the back side? In my memory this was done with English wheeled vehicles.

One of the options for this vehicle is 7 armoured division (with the famous red desert rat) 22 brigade (with a red deer). Now my question is which shoulder patch would be on the uniforms of their crew? The rat or the deer? And where can I find more about the way vehicles were identified with these division or brigade signs? Thanks in advance P.
