I agree that this a very nice kit. I have one in my latest purchases. And I can't wait to get my teeth into it.

Good review, thanks for that. I read the initial review of it on PMMS which wasn't encouraging but I see that has now been ammended so with this review it confirms this as the right choice to get for a tractor for the Dragon SFH18.

Good review, Shaun! I have this beast in the stash waiting its turn. As I'm working on its towing buddy (the sFH18) this one is obviously next in line.

Good review, Shaun!

My one quibble would be the claim the Sd.Kfz.7 pulled all German artillery. The Seven pulled mostly the 88 and the sFH 18 from all I have read and seen in photos. The 17-cm K 18, for example, weighed over 50K pounds when limbered, far beyond the 8 tons towing capacity of the Seven.
