This will be OOB, with figures from Dart Castings.

The BR 52 was built from 1942 until the end of 1944 with 6, 383 being built.

The BR 52 had an axle load of 15 Tonnes, and a maximum speed of 80 km/h both forwards and backwards.

Thanx guys.

Yes I will be doing the camo version, and I may add a FlaK gun on the Tender to protect it from the dreaded Jabo's.
