New from Amusing Hobby is an AFV I have never heard of, a 28cm mortar on a 38D chassis. Whether it is a paper panzer of modern piece of imagination it is a pretty cool design.

This looks really cool, I'll get one. I wish they WOULD do the Bar, it shares the same hull with the Lowe. And I can't wait to see their Conqueror!

Interesting- Should hold plenty of appeal for the "Paper Panzer Boys". IMO, it looks "Top-Heavy" and like it's about to take a "nose-dive" forward. I was kind of thinking about mounting an s.IG.33 in one of my spare E-25s...

I don't really have any interest in this release, but the fact that Amusing Hobby is still in business is wonderful news! I hope they follow through on the conqueror!

Not sure if I like this design or not, but at least they're back doing models.

This one is not really my cup of tea, but I will reinforce everyone else. Good to see Amusing Hobby is still around and anticipate the Conqueror.

Greetings, We distribute Amusing Hobby kits. At this time we have stock of all their kits except the Lowe. We will restock it when we receive the new Sturmmorser ETA late February. AH 35 A009. You can buy any of their kits through your local hobby shop, or if you don't have one, directly from us. We are taking pre-orders from shops and retail customers now. There will be news about the Conquerors soon! Thanks and Best Regards, Ken & Mary Ellen Lawrence Pacific Coast Models, Inc. LINK info& pacmodels.com

The Company Website link is Dead. So glad to see this. Because the Kora models kit is almost $300.00.

Totally agree! Their range of kits is not for everyone's liking, but the way they outclassed 'giants' of scale model market with their very first release was really amusing! Don't know where the news of them being OOB came from, but I heard the same about Xact Scale Models. Any info on that?

If another model I found is an accurate indicator, the box art is a little misleading. It's a bastardized mortar transporter -- the tube you see is at the rear of the vehicle, and it gets run out, tipped up, and then slid back into a standard mortar base that is attached to the rear of the vehicle for transport -- essentially making the 38D chassis (a diesel-powered variant of the 38T) the tripod for the mortar; it doesn't have to take any of the recoil. A clumsy design, but it has the feel of just the kind of one-off desperation designs the Reich had coming off the drafting tables at the end of the war.
