Nuts & Bolts publish a second edition of their Vol.5 Mittlerer gepanzerter Beobachtungskraftwagen Saurer RK-7 (Sd.Kfz. 254) which had been out of print for some time.
The first print run of Nuts & Bolts' volume 5 sold out several years ago, but they have now produced a revised version containing some new photos and drawings:

Almost sixteen years ago we published our Nuts & Bolts Vol. 05 Saurer RK-7 Sd.Kfz. 254 mittl. gepanzerter Beobachtungskraftwagen, a vehicle that ran on both wheels and tracks. Although we were not quite sure at that time whether such an unusual vehicle would meet the interest of our readers, the original print run is now completely sold out.
Since the Kit producer Hobby Boss has announced (and is already on sale) with their kit 82491 an injection molded Polystyren kit in 1:35 scale, the demand for this Vol. 05 has strongly increased.
Since that first version, we have been able to collect more historic action photos and additional colour photos from the sole complete vehicle and of another incomplete vehicle from the Wheatcroft Collection. We have therefore decided, to present our readers a revised edition with an additional 60 pages with complete new technical drawings from John L. Rue and a set of colour photos of the original resin Master-Model from Tony Greenland:

Mittlerer gepanzerter Beobachtungskraftwagen Saurer RK-7 (Sd.Kfz. 254) (available 10th September 2012)

Author John L. Rue & Heiner F. Duske
102 pages A4; approx. 242 photos, from those 88 historical Photos from the war in b/w, some of them unpublished; 127 colour photos of the existing vehicles in museums and private collections; 27 colour photos of the Master Model from Tony Greenland; German / English captions; 8 pages of German / English text; 10 pages of scale drawings of all known variants and details in 1:35 scale from John Rue; table with license numbers of those units who had this vehicle in their inventory; available and published on 10th September 2012.
