I like it very much but of course being Asiatam it leaves me with some qualifications,
First is going to be price, If it is more expensive than two "Bruder" Low LoaderTrailers then I shall save my money.
Then the amount of detail and lastly how many Tank Transporter Trailers were in service with the German Armed Forces 1939/1945 ?
In truth this is the first German Army Tank Transporter Trailer that I have seen in 3 dimensions.

Quality would be my worry, not price. Knowing asiatam it’ll have some casting issues and be brittle. A welcome sight anyhow.

It looks a copy of the Tamiya 1/35th kit.

Or maybe the real one. . . .

Haven't seen a picture of it pulled by anything else, but I didn't look much past that picture I just posted.

In fact, at 1/16 scale, there are only the Famo that exist to pull this Sd Ah116.

But during the Second World War, the Sd Kfz 8 could pull this impressive trailer. If someone is interesting, I have few pictures.

Hi I think its around 600 Euro then you need the Famo think that is 680 euro ,so not cheap. Ludwigs does do a Hamomag ss 100 think it was used to tow this trailer on the road (not sure about this seen it somewhere).

It makes the Purchase of two Bruder low loaders and the subsequent conversion even more likely if the 600 Euro figure is correct.

Expensive!

The dragon wagon one wasn’t cheap but makes it look peanuts by comparison!

There might be another way buy two 88mm guns and use the axles to make up a trailer,they look the same as used on the trailer.Just a thought then sell the guns or use them on the battlefield.
