Dragon 1/35 Sd.Kfz.7 Late Production "Smart Kit"

The kit is very nicely molded with a high degree of detail on the various parts. And a LOT of parts there are! The only problem I have with Dragon kits is those nasty little blobs of plastic attached to many of the parts. I know why they are there, but they will prove to be a hindrance later.
The kit appears to be the standard Dragon Sd.Kfz.7 kit, as there are many parts not used. Some of those parts include a complete armored cabin for a different version. I suppose if one knew enough about the Sd.Kfz.7 family, they could use the extra parts to build a whole different kit!
The instructions are very well done and include a parts layout. A paint chart for Aqueous, Mr. Color and MM paints is also provided. Even though the instructions show 3 paint schemes, enough decals are provided to do most any vehicle desired. A small set of p/e parts is also included.

I used part of the Griffon p/e set for the Dragon Sd.Kfz.7/1 Flak-Vierling. Most of the set cannot be used on this version, but all the engine parts and some of the chassis parts can be. I will use the Flak gun parts on a later build of the Tamiya Sd.Kfz 7/1.

This kit was provided by, and build for, Modeling Madness. A detailed build review is available on that site.
