Hopefully they will do a later or early version at some point, or maybe some other variants off the same chassis like a siG 33B.

If price wouldn't be absurd it will be perfect for swapping HL Stug upper hull which is lacking in details.

Pre-ordered mine too! Love to see more vendors make 1/16 kits like this! A nice Panther A or Hetzer would be fantastic (without so much interior).

Some figures and soft skinned vehicles would be cool too. This is definitely good direction for the hobby!

Pre-order price here in US is awesome through Andy's - $100. Looks like beautiful kit.

Yes, I pre-ordered two. At $99.99 from Andy's HHQ, two are cheaper then what the Trumpeter Stug III G will be. If and when Trumpeter releases their Stug III G it will probably be in the $200-$300 price range?

Yeah, Trumpeter would 1/3 more expensive as they make full interior. I would love something new apart of the same German AFVs every company makes. Panzer II maybe? Some French, British or more obscure Italian, Japanaese, Polish, Hungarian tanks?

Hope the StuG's do well. Maybe the Faun L900 Hardtop and the StuH 42 with zimm... all in 1/16.

Yes, a StuH 42 would be great. With or without Zimmerit. Maybe with the Saukof Matlet and muzzle brake?

And I found this today:


No pre-orders mentioned but has schurzen in this kit. (another self-indulgent Christmas present)
