TC, go to the thread in Soldatenheim about Airfix in receivership; someone posted a link on there to a plastic soldier site that actually holds pics of all 172nd plastic figures that i have ever heard of, a lot being still available new. There are a couple of companies that do German m/c combinations, and one at least that does a pack containing three German A/T guns. The Airfix "German recconaisance" set is still available if you search for itm and the half-track carrier and 88mm gun. Armourfast/HaT list a snap-together PzIII but I havent seen them anywhere yet.

TC. go to http://www.hannants.co.uk, enter 1/72 scale and military vehicle kits (injection) in theor search options and start searching! Out of stock and Future Releases aren't overly clearly marked, but theres THIRTY FOUR pages of WWII and Modern AFVs, just pateitnly search for what you want. There's more than you might think!

There are some German artillery types available as kits, but you'll neeed to find out more information on what the DAK had at their disposal. And if they basically used Italian....:-(

It also depends on the ranges of the pieces you want your DAK troops to use; with 1:76, almost all the artillery I used to use was off table, so I didn't need models of them anyway.
All armies can be divided into two parts:
1. Infantry;
2. Support arms.
