May be time to retire that Blast kit in the stash... this looks great. I’m curious, could this of operated without the front demolition charge carrier in place, where the smoke discharges are?

I was sort of curious and skeptical about it based on the presence of the demolition charge still being in place. Talk about rude surprises for the crew when they take virtually any kind of hit!!! Either way, this has got to be better than the rather fumbly Dragon release of many years ago which I have started using recently as a conversion basis. Who would have guessed that someone would release a beast such as this?

Nice to have the Wanze as a kit instead of Blast's set or home made scratchbuild. The Wanze was actually used in battle, the one for Berlin to be precise, so not paper panzer project this time. There was an article in an old magazine many years ago, either Mil Modelling or German mag Modell-Fan. Apparently, the Wanze was one of two made shift a/t vehicles used during the treetfighting in Berlin, the other being Kubelwagens, armed in a similar way, to perform hit and run attacks on enemy tank formations. I have never seen nor heard any details on how these Kubelwagens did look like. Some more on the subject here LINK

Thank You, Tat! Not normally my "cup of tea", but nevertheless, it looks like an interesting kit and I may pick one up just for "the hell of it"!
