OK, given this is in cooperation with Takom, there is the real possibility of permutations from them, there being four production versions, a couple of field modifications, and two proposed versions. Happy days for large scale modellers.

Nice figure, too.

The 234/4 is a given, since Das Werk has the Pak 40 with the new 251/22. I expect that the 251/9 isn’t far off as this would be the next obvious progression, and would give them the 234/3 as well. The 234/1 is a bit difficult since that’s an entirely new turret and gun, which neither Takom nor Das Werk has as of yet. The turret of the 234/1 is of little use on the 251 (the 251/23 was never produced so don’t think that would be a good prospect), although the 2cm gun could perhaps be adapted to the 251/17 mount.
Now how much do I want to waste two expensive 1/16 kits to build one (i.e. the Classy Hobby Luchs turret on the DW 234/2)… I know someone will!

Looks great, probably will grab it at some point. What’s the MSRP?

Agreed on the /1, my preferred variant… & combining the Luch turret, too much expense. Of course, Takom (or anyone) could go full 2cm Schwebelafette.

Can’t wait for the kit. If it’s not too late to adjust the figure, there needs to be a center seam on the back of the jacket and officer should boards instead of the enlisted shoulder straps shown.

$110. Seems reasonable enough

The only place I could ever put a 1/16 beast is selling one the cars in the garage in order to park it. :joy:
