This is one of those kits that I can't get around, I have to have it. It's a lot cooler than the standard Sd.Kfz.7 and if it gets generally positive feedback it'll definitely be finding its way onto my workbench.

What a $%#^ing great time to be an Sd.Kfz.7 fan!!! This one's a really good addition to the line since it's so very different from the original Prime Mover or all the variants.

Hope they corrected the sprocket mistake from the first kit. I still build another though.
