Manufacturer: ESCI (8004)

This is a "Wespe" self-propelled howitzer based on the old ESCI kit. It is a bit bulky and simplified kit and in my opinion it required the fighting compartment walls to be replaced by thinner material, the interior and the gun (including e.g. muzzle brake, cradle, sighting device) to be detailed and the equipment on the outside to be altered and complemented a bit. Further detailing could have been possible, but I was satisfied with the aforementioned alterations. I only remain sorry about the rather poor and almost completely glue resistant vinyl tracks. Special thanks to David O´Barr for providing the kit and to Bram Corts for information on the subject.
