7201 schwerer Wehrmachtschlepper

All the sWS kits have a common decal sheet

  • Decal 1 represents this vehicle (also seen here) and is correct for kit 7201.
  • Decals 2 and 10 represent this vehicle (also seen here) and is correct for kit 7211.
  • Decal 3 is for the cabin version with regular wheels (not the spoked wheels) and is correct for kit 7207 (if the right wheels are used)
  • Decal 4: no photographic evidence so far.
  • Decal 5: no photographic evidence so far. It is seen on the cover art of kit 7218 and 7211. At least one of those cannot be correct.
  • Decals 6 and 13 represent this vehicle and is correct for kit 7204. I am not entirely convinced that the license plate is right from the pictures found online, but maybe MACO has better pictures.
  • Decals 7 and 11 represent this vehicle and is correct for kit 7206.
  • Decal 8 is supposed to be used for kit 7211. I have no proof of this vehicle.
  • Decal 9 is used on all the sWs kits.
  • Decal 12 is for the regular version with regular wheels.

7207 sWS gepanzert (spate Ausf.) The kit includes both plain and spoked roadwheels.
It seems that most of the vehicles (even the late ones) used the plain wheels, although a few used the spoked wheels. The builder should carefully check references. WL215745, decal option 3, certainly did not have spoked wheels.
(See remarks about marking options in kit 7201.) - Timothy Lau
     
7208 Flakpanzer IV "Kugelblitz" The kit might need the Flammentöter of the PzKpfw IV Ausf. J and minor modifications. - Timothy Lau

Flakpanzer III "Ostwind" This vehicle was probably never built. - Timothy Lau      
7211 sWS with 3.7 cm Flak 43 See remarks about marking options in kit 7201. The instructions tell people to use decal 7; don't do this for this kit. - Timothy Lau

 

 Preview    
7212 sWS mit Flak-Aufbau als Sfl.mit 2 cm Flak-Vierling 38 This is a very rare vehicle, with perhaps only two vehicles built. The kit can be built as an armored sWS (like kit 7207), but lacks the necessary spoked wheels. See remarks about marking options in kit 7201. - Timothy Lau
