    Going from the box art and layout, I wonder if "Freedom Model Kits" might be an offshoot from Dragon.

    Love the Kettenrad, I've just finished the old Dragon Models SdKfz 2/2 which is the legendary with the cable feels and a couple of honked off lineys.
    For members who were not Royal Corps of Signals, a "liney" is the nickname for a Combat Lineman, a now defunct trade in the Corps. Lineys were famous a their optimistic outlook on life and beer drinking qualities. You also didn't need too many braincells to be one. First class rugby players though!

    Hi Steve,
    I only thought Dragon released the old Esci 1/9 example. Did they do a 1/16 scale kit...
    Will try to get my hands on one of these... thanks for sharing Patrick.

    I agree. It would be nice to see also some conversons / upgrades for the Kettenkrad. Also my Xion 1:16 RC Kettenkrad would be not that alone :D
    A good translation would be svengali (like in the sniper movie: duell enemy at the gates).

    That is most important, Rob, IMHO!

    Great kit, thinking hard on this one. There seems to be log jam over here at our ports and it shows these are coming from China direct. The delivery time seems a bit long, regardless. Sure is tempting though.

    Cheers, Ski.

    Well, I took the plunge too, couldn't pass it up. I'm calling it a belated holiday gift, February is a long way off, HA!
