    That should keep you out of mischief for a while, especially if you get more crew members!

    Happy New Year,

    Building Time was about 8,5 hours. The kit is ok for the price. Especially from a company who havent made any kits like the kettenkrad in 1:16.

    Thanks for the detailed photo reviewPatrick, much appreciated. The figure looks decent, good detail on the uniform, but the detail on the KettenKrad looks a bit soft.

    A few observations on the paint instructions and decals.

    Some of the decals look out of register, particularly the Balkenkreuz, and no. 44 (Helmet National Insignia?).

    The paint instructions follow the usual loose "unidentified Unit" discription, despite indicating unit marking for specific units... (Dragon origin?):rolleyes:. The suggested markings don't always result in accurate renditions though, and these instructions are no exception.

    Option B shows a Brown and green over Dunkel Gelb scheme, introduced in 1943. It's Ok for the 3rd Panzer Division (decal 38/39), but not for decal option 40, which was for the 7th Panzer Division, but only used in 1940. You could paint the KettenKrad in Panzer grau, as per option C.

    Ah, Option C. Painted in German Grey. Or Panzer Grau. The instructions correctly identify it as a vehicle in 1941. Sadly the markings they suggest are for the 116thPanzer Division (Windhund division), which was not formed untill 1944...
    As always, if accuracy is important, do your research before following the instructions..

    Oh, I meant to mention another thing about the markings/instructions. The instructions give a generic option to use any of the available numberplate registration options, but the markings included are all for Wehrmacht Units, and the figure wears a Wehrmacht uniform (breast Eagle as opposed to sleeve eagle). So if you use any of the included markings, and/or the figure, only the WH prefix is appropriate.

    Would this Rad have been in Service with the DAK in North Afrika? As there is A Ramke decal shown. Regards, Brock

    I think for the price this kit is worth every penny, i bought the version with the "Goliath" and trailer and i'm very happy with it.

    Previous to this being commercially available the only other options were 3D printed ones off sites like ebay or the Precision Models resin kit, the latter often costing $$$..
