Nice. Glad to see crew figures supplied too.

The Auf. H was only built for 10 months (May '43-Feb '44). The pic, of the PE Schurzen, looks to be the Type II version. This was introduced in September 1943. Any early version would require the Type I Schurzen. Not sure if they are including both types in the box.

I completely understand that a new company needs to make the maximum use of molds but, let's see, they have now something like four or five variations on the same kit; there isn't much outside the commander's hatch to differentiate between a late G and an early H (or Mid, for that matter) and little on the J outside of exhaust systems, etc. I would have liked a new kit like a really nice Pz III or Marder; it isn't like they can't as they offer a really nice-looking Leopard 2 kit as well. Kind of tired at splitting hairs, I guess. Oh, what the heck, bring it on and let the market decide. Still, I hope that the metal gun barrel offered here is not the disappointment that I experienced on my "G" which barely resembled the picture or illustrations and for which the company offered no recourse when I contacted them on it.

Yes! This is the one I've been waiting for. My favorite tank. The big kicker, for me, is that incredible grenadier machine gunner posted up on the rear! What an incredible little incentive that will have me buying this on day one.
