Hi all,

I agree with Karl in his review, a great build so far, I only wish that HB would have provided more detailed painting instructions for the cab interior (same problem as with their AAVP kits). I have to discuss this matter with the HB staff
on the Nuremberg Toy Fair.

I wouldn`t call the price tag hefty, I bought my kit for 45€ roughly 60 $US. If you consider that the price for the resin kit from Panzershop retails for 260 $US, this could be called a bargain:-))

I suppose it all depends on how you define wheeled SPG artillery, but I am sure the German Sd.Kfz 234/3 was a wheeled SPG back in WW2.. Same with the Beford truck with a 25pdr strapped on the bed..

None of this stops me wanting one of these..

You must not forget that this kit is not identified if there Panzer Resin Kit Shop. !!!!! I'm not saying it's a copy.!!!!! "God forbid me.
PS kit had to serve as a model because HB has the same error (headlights - for example), but also is much improved HB. The same is true of documents for production. Until recently there was a CD from PS with detailed reference picture. The fact that they were used indicating decal No. 13. A vehicle designated as such there was only one day for one event and only the owner's own photo PS. This photo added to the CD.
I mean to say that it is rather good PS thanks for their model, because it may arise due to plastic kit from HB. We also like to build it because it is the first modern plastic kit Czech military vehicle production.
Still one.. Why do you keep someone compares prices of resin and plastic kits. Remember that all resin kit is handmade and completely different technology.

if your looking to buy this kit, check out hobby easy , by far the best prices and service is great , to my place in ontario canada from hong kong, in five days, the kit is truly a impressive and unique one, and I am sure soon enough there will be a good aftermarket barrel out for it.

Thanks for the comments guys, much appreciated.

As for the price- what I posted in the review was the price Creative Models UK had it on for, and I just converted it to dollars and euros. I got mine from Luckymodel which have it for $52.99/Euro38.03/£36.46. Hobbyeasy have it on for similar prices.

I'd also like to clear up something I wrote in the 'Painting and Decals' section. At the time I wrote it I wasn't sure what nationality the vehicle depicted in 'Option II' was. Thanks to pictures posted by Frenchy (http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=170603&page=1) we can see it is a Polish vehicle as it has the same 'WWR' prefix on the black and white lettering number plate.

Also PREVIOUSLY operated by the Czechoslovakia and Russia (USSR). They have both stopped using them.

Nice review, looks to be a great buy. Looking forward to getting mine and thanks to both HB for the kit and Panzershop for the resin kit (I bought mine years ago) that had to be inspiration.
