Nice detail & terrific photos -does anyone make a reputable 1/35th model of this vehicle?

PSM and Elite both makes resin models of the Biber. The PSM kit is much newer and likely both a fit build and better quality than the Elite kit. You will not find that either kit is inexpensive due to the size and amount of parts.

Sigh....could only hope that someone like Hobby Boss or Trumpeter would make a styrene version for the masses...

I proposed to Revell-Germany years ago when they first released their 1/72 Biber that they should upscale it to 1/35. They reply was that they did not think there was sufficient interest in Engineering vehicles to justify scaling it up to 1/35.

Revell-Germany recently re-released their 1/72 Biber and again people are calling for a plastic 1/35 kit. They are losing out on a very good opportunity.

HobbyBoss or RoG please, Cheaper in the UK & they have most of the base vehicle...
I'd have 2 as the bridge could be used as the basis for the LEGUAN(?)
