Given it span of usage (early '50s untill the '80s) I think it's a nice release.

Grz,

Sam.

Good news
I hope that they follow up with all the variations of the basic vehicle ...

Great new! A decent Cold War "secondary" vehicle to display alongside my Armour.

Truly, good things do indeed appear to come to those who wait.

This is good news. Can't wait to see how it comes out. Based on their Russian trucks, it should be nice.

Well, they have easy access to Russian trucks, as there is lots of them in Ukraine. Not so sure about the M37... Hopefully they have good references. We'll see.

Can someone remind me - would this vehicle have been in the MASSTER camouflage scheme?

I have a vague recollection that I did see some back in the day.

Thanks, in anticipation.

I've been waiting a long time for a M37! I think they will do fine, there are many M37's scattered across Europe and the world. Based on their other offerings, it seems they only do things right. Finally I can build a model of my truck.

Maybe you could contact them at roden@roden.eu and offer your help with photos, measurements etc.? I know I'd love to have such help when designing a kit, from someone owning the real thing.
