Wonderful sunday Gentleman and Ladies.

Im thinking about buying a Sturmgeschütz III Ausf.F/8 (#783(?) ) and Kübelwagen (# 749) in 120mm scale from Verlinden.

I didn't find any informations about these kits on the net.
Can somebody recommend these kits?

Wish you a wonderful sunday and Easter

Alex I have both of these kits. As for the Kublewagen I highly recommend the Tamyia kit over the Verlinden, which I’m working on right now. It goes together much easer than the resin kit and is easier to detail with scratch bits. As for the Stug, the upper hull it is just a big hunk of solid resin, the lower hull looks good but the upper is crap. An option I’m playing with is to buy the R/C Stug G version and detail it out. It's cheaper than the Verlinden stug and made from plastic, I’ll just get rid of the R/C stuff. If you have any other question feel free to PM me, I also build exclusively in this scale and have quite a few kits.
