Panzer Concepts comes with a new rare vehicle conversion, the Flakmeßtruppkraftwagen
The vehicle carried the crew of the fire direction system for Flak batteries, with the Kommando-Gerät 36 itself towed also.

The conversion uses AFV Club Bussing Nag 4500A kit as a base.

BJdeB - Nice touch to also include the crane baseplate so you can use the "big hook" on other vehicles! I had thought of using it with the SS-100 tractor.

Taeuss, Yes I already offer the SdKfz 7/6 as a separate Kit.. The SdKfz 415 is a new kit that has not been released yet.. This was just a preview of the upcoming release of the 415.. They look similar as they both served the same purpose of towing the KDO 36 and 40 (Bronco Kit)

Thanks, As being a builder first I have always hated adding so many sprues to the parts bin so I am trying to set things up so you can get more then one conversion from a single kit. Granted if you build the SdKfz 6 with crane you would chuck out the bed from the Bronco kit but hey..They the price of conversions when the plastic companies can't make every version of something unless it is a Tiger.

Question: Does the 415 conversion require stretching the Bussing-Nag stock frame? No problem if it does I was just wondering.

For those who perhaps don't recall; Panzer Concepts recently announced the introduction of a conversion kit similar to this one but using the Sd. Kfz. 7 as a starting point. Both these kits make for the first ever companion for the Bronco Telemeter kit that came out some years ago. You can check out the other kit at: LINK

No stretching of the frame required.. This was just a drop on cab/bed in real life. It is actually a little longer then SdKfz 7/6 which surprised me when I was scaling what photos I could find. This actually one of the easiest conversions I have made.. The build is very Straight Forward and pretty simple.. I will have the instructions done in the next few days and will post a link once they are done. Pre orders should start shipping the first of the week the will have it live on my website right after that.

THE PERFECT companion for the 415 from DES or the perfect conversion for the Bronco plastic kit:
