A very impressive kit, made the more impressive by the fact that it's a conversion. Well done.
Yes, it's really well made.
I would very much like to see some shots of it during the making if you have some, something that shows how you made the conversion. I always find it interesting to see where the original model ends and the conversion begins, as well as materials and such.

sorry but that is all i got
Thanks, nice work.
I've been wanting to do that vehicle in 1/35 for years.I think it's out of production now however.Nice job.
out of production?
i knew of this vehicle many years ago, a conversion of a monogram sdfkz 232, in scale 1/32, and scratch build!!!!
I was refering to the Tamiya 1/35 kit.
It's still around. And Tamiya re-release it from time to time, so if you can't find it right now you'll probably find it later.
The last time I personally saw one in a store it was almost $40.That was 15 years ago.
If you really want one you should try this site. It's out of stock now, but I almost always get what I order there. You might have to wait a month or two though.
mmm, all ya are talking about the 232, i'm talking about the 263
and indeed is based on the tamiya 232
It is the 232 I was talking about.I shoulda got one when I had the chance.
i got me 2 of them, one i converted to the 263 and the other is waiting in line!!!!!!
got them in ebay, and really cheap!!!!!!( some years ago)
BANG!!!! Just won one one Ebay and for a good price too.HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
Happy New Year to you too. And I hope you get a kit with no parts missing. I stopped trading at eBay when I realised that one out of every three kits I bought missed parts or were otherwise ruined. I also discovered that most of what you buy on eBay can be bought from webstores as well, usually for less money and with a lot more confidence.
mm, i got me in ebay a dragon morser loki 1/35, for only 31 bucks, reg.49.99, and brand new and sealed, you can not beat that!!!!!
These fellers have this in stock:

Sure, but you can beat one out of every three kits with missing parts and other flaws. A couple of the kits I purchased on eBay were even started.
SturmTiger, how much did you have to pay for your SdKfz 232 by the way?
$23 plus shipping.Far less than what this kit went for in my local hobby shop.
