Darren,

Nice review, I am looking forward to getting this kit, but too bad about the vinyl rubber tires, hopefully someone will release a set of resin AM for it.

Nice, thanks for the review. Yeah, having vinyl / rubber tires seem to be a jump backwards. Online shops I've seen still have this on pre-order status -- hope the wait isn't that any more longer.

Wanted one of these for many years and, thankfully, I now won't have to scratch-build one!

I believe Royal Models and Hussar make resin replacement wheels for the Tamiya Krupp Protze. They look to be the same as per the 247 box art.

I'd love the suspension wishbone/spring components from this kit to fix the errors in the Tamiya kit..... still haven't finished scratch building the ones I started for that years ago

The chassis and engine are an excellent portion of this model, I just wish more of it could be seen.

Depending on the price I definitely want one of these. Hopefully they'll bring out the four wheel B too.
