The First post of my Famo Build, i never build two kit's at a time but in this case there's lot's of similarities and dual construction tasks with the sdkfz 7, ie, Headlight's, Grill, Running Gear etc. and overall details, The Main difference is the size, the Famo is HUGH!. REGARDS SIMON.

Yes, a great model in the hands of a great modeler! I have fastened my seat belt! :D

Really cool Simon, you're building FAMO and SDKFZ 7. Phil W can build three or four models at a time, so we need to raise the bar. Perhaps he has more worker elves that can work round the clock. FAMO is great model, will be interesting to see what you do on this one.
Best regards,

Hi Simon,
I know you are not gonna miss-out the 18 tonnes FAMO after building the Sd Kfz 7 8-tonnes Halbkettenfahrzeug.
Will the Notek front light also be installed on the FAMO?
