I have a couple of 1/35  88mm gun carriage kits and Im looking to build a  Sdkfz-7-0 8-ton German Halftrack to pull it preferably with the crew.

Whats the consensus for which is the best KIT for a Best kit for a Sdkfz-7-0 8-ton halftrack.   Including also any aftermarket PE for the kit and any included or additional kit for the 9 man gun/halftrack crew ?

 

Would it be the Dragon kit ?  Trumpeter kit? Or Tamyia kit?  Did I miss any ?  And best PE sets,? Polish Part PE ? Eduard ?  Aber ? 

 

Yours mike

My preference would be the various Dragon kits, the details are more crisp than the Trumpeter offerings, and way ahead of the Tamiya variants that originate from the 1970's. The Trumpeter may have dimension issues according to others...

Some Modellers have fit issues with the initial Dragon armoured cab version, but this has been rectified in subsequent releases, and probably doesn't apply for the variant you're looking into.

As for p/e sets, they are probably much of a muchness, and better to choose whatever is available that fits the specific kit you are going to build.

Nick Mayhew or others may be able to assist further...

Definitely Dragon ... AFV Club might have one floating around by this point ... but the Dragon kit is a good reliable go-to.

Dunno who made your 88's ... but there is actually a Dragon kit with a Half track (don't know the type), 88 and (I think) some seated crew?? ... Forget the kit number but I'll have a dig around and If I can find it I'll edit the post ... The dragon 88's are the duck nuts too!

Wow !!! Thanks gentlemen!!! 

I suspected as much.  I have a couple of dragon armor kits in the stash. At the time I wasnt paying attention to the cost but was seduced by the number of CAD detail drawings on the box covers n instruction sheets ! Figures. Great advice thank you I'm off to search the stores now.

More than enough complimentary figure sets to go around also
