Dragon Models has released a new boxing of their Hummel self-propelled artillery. This is the Hummel Wespe, with the 10.5 cm gun (instead of the typical 15 cm). The smaller gun meant extra rounds could be carried in the vehicle.
This kit is based on the excellent Dragon Hummel kit, with new sprues for the smaller gun, a modified fighting compartment, and new racks for the extra ammo.
The hull and running gear is based on the Panzer IV, with an excellent level of detail. The road wheels are of the rubber rim style. I was pleasantly surprised to see all the rivets, access panels, and overall surface detail of the hull and front armor pieces. It does look “like the part”. The tracks are of the DS kind and have good detail as well.
The fighting compartment has very nice surface detail, and while some aftermarket parts are likely to be made for it, I doubt they will be required. Multiple racks, boxes, a fire extinguisher (at least I think that is what it is), all kind of fittings, plus braces/brackets, make it very busy. All of this detail has raised detail that would take dry-brushing really well and will help to show detail.
