Good review Roman. Appears the build was quite easy and straight forward! What are your plans now? Base, figures ... some Norwegina houses in the background?

It is not forthcoming, it is on sale already. Are you interested in anything particular?

So... can anyone tell me how much in what way(s) this Dragon "Nr 3 - 5" kit differs from the Cyber Hobby initial kit?

The real vehicles Nrs. 3 - 5 were hardened steel "combat versions", whereas Nr 2 was a soft steel prototype with a Krupp turret (main guns side-by-side) - but I'm not sure how much Nr. 2 differed from Nrs 3 - 5 in external appearance. Hence the question about the CH x Dragon kits, as both deal with what I believe are Krupp turret versions.

Trumpeter has kitted the "other" soft-steel prototype with the Rhein-Metall "over-under" turret. This one differs in obvious ways from those Krupp-turreted types.

The Amusing Hobby kit is apparently of "Nrs 3 - 5" combat versions. Maybe, from what I've read concerning the current A-H kit having different-colored sprues, there is some possibility that A-H will put out another kit... maybe of the Rhein-Metall-turreted prototype... That would be cool

Bob, one of the key differences is that the MG turrets are completely different Nr2, only 2 exhausts in Nr2 and some small things like lifting hooks on the main turret, driver's visor port.

I don't know if any at Armorama is doing that. But as far as I've seen AH has some element better detailed than Dragon, but the quality of the kit is a bit lower.
The good thing is that they have detail on the inner sides of the hatches and the MGs in the small turrets are not just barrel from the outside, but it is a proper MG.
