This is the Trumpeter 05550 kit in 1/35 scale, of the ‘German 8.8cm PAK-43 Waffenträger’.
During the meeting on development and production on 9 January 1945, the status of the Waffenträger 8.8 cm PaK 43 was reported as: In spite of using couriers to deliver suspension parts, only 2 are expected to be completed by 31 December 1944.
All means will be used in an attempt to obtain all of the suspension parts by the end of December. If this is achieved, a further 19 should be completed by 15 January 1945.
