+1!
And better we get a really good, detailed modell than an anaccurate, loveless designed one with low detail grade. Take the time that you need  :)

Great model, look forward to It's release!!
Re the D shape bar on the turret mesh discussed a page or 2 back, it was a 'back rest/support ' for crew when seated on edge of turret, it folded out towards rear of vehicle,  enclosing crew perched on edge.. the cylindrical air filter was usually on DAK vehicles so definitely ought to be an optional part :)

Has there been any update on the progress of this kit published anywhere else? I know these things sometimes get referenced in other topics or on other sites from time to time!
Thanks

Ah, thanks for that. Not going to be Q1 2018 then, if they are still adjusting the moulds!

Nice.

How are the mould changes going on the base kit?

The final changes had been completed and we are now in the final phase of approving the moulds. We are also working on the assembly instruction and decal set as well.

I'm a sucker for armoured cars, and German types especially, so this variant looks good.  I'm not sure if an unarmed signals vehicle has much utility in warhaming, so this is probably one for the modellers.  It will soon be possible to model an extensive group of German HQ vehicles - some cool diorama ideas there.

The SdKfz 260/261 expansion kit is a simple 2 sprue kit (figure size version) in a blister pack.  It should be released together with the SdKfz 222/223 kit if production schedule is on time.  ;)
