I contacted Squadron.com earlier today (4/16/10) to ask about this book since tankograd listed them as the US distributor. I copied the exchange below.


Spoke to our president here as I just found out he is personally reviewing orders for Tankograd and he said we will probably have this in 3-5 weeks. Our item # for this will be TP01001.

Thanks Jeff. It's already listed for sale on their site and a review is currently on Armorama about it. The latter is where I learned of it and the Tankograd website was where I learned that Squadron is their US distributor. - Jim

Hi. I just read tankograd had published a book on the WWI German A7V tank. When do you think you will get any stock on this title as I'm itching to get my hands on one. Any info would be appreciated! - Jim Hand

Jim,

I should have mentioned in my review that I ordered my copy direct from Tankograd. They have a very odd order service, since they don't take card payments online. Instead, you fill your "basket" and then print out the order form, which has spaces for your card details. You fill them out and drop it in the post to Germany. Tankograd didn't acknoledge my order despite asking for my email address - the books just arrived a couple weeks after I sent the order.

Good luck!

Tom

Hi Tom! I ordered some books from them a few years ago and had much the same experience as you described. I searched for this title and the only place that it appeared was on their site. I buy some stuff from Squadron occasionally and try to order from them regularly to stay on their mailing list. I have a Tauro A7V kit in the stash as well as a couple Emhar kits, a Tadpole and a Whippet, so I'm pretty excited about the prospect of a WWI armor series.
