sdkfz 7/2 from 4D

Post by Fire-at-Will »

I acquired couple of armoured sdkfz 7/2 on ebay made by 4D. Despite having one from Britannia already I couldn't resist a bargain and the pair cost me £7.25 including postage. Although I couldn't paint with my broken shoulder I found I could manage short 10 minute bursts of kit assembly, so thats what I did. Overall a nice kit, but like their sdkfz 7 it is oversize. The crew were provided from my bits box.

I think I'll retire my Britannia version now

No those are from a similarly named company, eight different models all with the same lower hull and tracks

Shoulder now allows me to do most normal things except heavy lifting, hopefully get a pass from the physio to do a bit more on Wednesday

I used my "7" as an "8" as they scaled exactly right for 1/76 so undersized for 1/72
