GERMAN WWII HALF-TRACK Sd.Kfz. 7 VARIANTS & FLAK 18/36/37 - PHOTO MANUAL FOR MODELERS
''...The four variants covered are a Borgward produced Sd.Kfz.7 HL m 11 Early model, a Sd.Kfz.7 KM m 11 Late model with simplified canvas covered cab and wood sided cargo area followed by a Sd.Kfz.7/1 KM m 11 Early with armoured cab and Flakvierling 38 and a Sd.Kfz.7/2 KM m 11 Early with 3.7cm Flak 18/36/37.
The book starts with a brief two page description of the four vehicles featured as well as the development of the Sd.Kfz.7 series and then it?s into the detail.
Pages 4 to 32 have photos of a couple of the vehicles under restoration with the detail shown applicable to all four versions with incredible close-up shots of the chassis frame with shots of each cross member showing the different details of each with shots of the complicated rear towing hitch from inside the chassis frame as well as ?normal? rear end shots. The winch assembly comes in for some special attention with three pages of extreme close up shots.
The front axle/suspension/steering gets two full pages with close-ups of the steering arms, ballcrank linkages as well as the central leaf spring suspension and its attachments.
The next three pages have shots of the drive sprockets and road wheels taken from angles not normally accessible to give superb details of the sprocket drive teeth and the wheel axles and suspension mountings that offer details usually hidden from view.
Following this is 14 pages covering the engine and gearbox outside of the vehicle that again offer some superb details not usually seen...
...This is another superb photo reference book for the modeller packed full of excellent close-up shots covering virtually every aspect of the Sd.Kfz.7 8ton plus the addition of the late version and the /1 and /2 variants that add more value to the book.
Highly recommended for builders of the Tamiya Sd.Kfz.7 kits as well as the individual Flakvierling and FlaK 37 kits''
