I commissioned this piece for my father-in-law whose father (my wife's grandfather) who served in the Pz.Jg.Abt. 88 from its incarnation to the summer of '44 when he was severely wounded a month prior before the beginning of the Jassy-Kishinev Operation that saw the complete destruction of Army Group South Ukraine. He finished the war as an prisoner of war after the Panzergrenadier Regiment he was pressed into surrendered to American Forces in March '45.
The Sd.kfz 164 was custom built to reflect the Nashorn he was assigned to with Hull #321 - 3. Kompanie 2. Zug with 1 being the first vehicle with the senior most vehicle commander. The kit was well built and extremely durable. The detailing alone is amazing especially in the crew fighting compartment and the simulated weld lines on the hull really bring out the detail to make the panzer look nearly life like. Definitely worth every penny to honor my grandfather-in-law that I never had the honor in meeting before his passing.
