Looks good on the 3D pics.

The website says "Construction by MACO".

Hello Matthias,
Great news! My friend Juergen mentioned to me a short time ago to be expecting this kit (and the 4x4 later).

I want to make a pre-order of 4 kits please.

Thanks,

Warning ! Be careful with this model

July 5 2012, 2:17 AM 

Dear colleagues !

Be careful with this model, because it is very simplified:
[linked image]
[linked image]

Please, compare these two images to each other - and You will see the differences by Yourself.
Note, for example, wrong shape of rear part of cab. Also note wrong wheel hubs, forward bumper, wrong thickness of radiator, some differences on front fenders.

Why do not make these parts in right shape and dimensions from beginning, in moulding forms, and not "with help of God and after-market" ?

Easy now

Let's not judge the model by the looks of the, also simplified, 3D image.

Let's see the sprues before passing judgement on the kit!

Rear Diff

July 5 2012, 4:47 AM 

The kit may need work its so much easier to work in plastic than diecast. I still will be getting a couple funds allowing, the cab does look off a bit but I am sure this will be sorted with an after market item.

I am very surprised at how tiny the rear diff is on the real vehicle. so much power and torque going into somthing that small very surprised. My Leyland lynx has a smaller than normal rear diff but it has hub reduction units on the rear hub to deal with the torque I am amazed that this worked.

you have a right

July 7 2012, 1:28 PM 

is true the 3d model is wrong, because this the kit is probably wrong too, because they use a 3d printing to create the master of models, because this, every day appears more and more 3d models and if the 3d is wrong, when they printing the masters this have the same wrong parts.

cheers.

What's with all the negative waves Moriarty?

July 5 2012, 3:50 PM 

We finally get a new manufacturer turning out decent new 1/72 injection kits that haven't been available before and you give them a pasting over fairly trivial issues in a 3d model......You really should get out more guys! wink.gif

No excuses!

July 6 2012, 5:30 AM 

I agree with Illian, the stark truth is that the information to do a first class product is readily available and all the manufacturers have to do if they are in doubt is contact you guys.Only yesterday i was talking to a manufacturer about the obvious faults on some of the IBG kits,ALL avoidable before production.A beautifull range of Bedford QLs with very poor cabs! The CMP trucks with again poor wheels and so on.And now that the PSC are doing bren carriers i predict that IBG will lose sales to them because of the overcomplicated tracks etc, not to mention price. I think disapointment is the right word here.

Oooh, that's nice....

July 5 2012, 7:28 AM 

Hi,

I definitely want one, or more, of these. It looks superb and the decals are very good as they give some nice marking options. Are there any more German big trucks planned? This is a nice surprise and a pleasant change from the normal releases for the German army 1939-45. Keep up the good work.

All the best,

Paul

looks like another great kit to pick up!

July 5 2012, 6:01 PM 

I know that there is no perfect kit, but that is why us modellers can use our skills to improve them. I am looking forward to picking up this little gem, warts and all and will utilize my little skills to improve or modify it to my standards, if you release them than I will purchase them!....Will
