It's a decent kit overall of the diesel prototype. Oddly, though, the kit includes the normal Hetzer gas engine.
I would not be surprised if Trumpeter released a second kit using the very modular tooling.
The kit wheels are poor and are best replaced. I think you need a new idler wheel too. Fortunately the Trumpeter kit parts interchange easily with Tamiya and Eduard. You could swap guns, engine deck parts, etc., around easily.
There is a good photo review and discussion of the kit on Planet Armor
