Aus diesem Prototyp wurde bis 1940 der serienmäßige VW Typ 82 (Kübelwagen) entwickelt. Both kits (Skybow and AFV Club) are excellent, but the Skybow´s includes a mantlet cover made out of soft plastic, a similar material used for the tracks. Vinyl mesh is also used to represent the ventilation grilles on top of the engine compartment.
But ok, kits are designed to be built and not to be collected… By Patricio Delfosse | 07.23.2014 12:05The Hotchkiss H39 first appeared in 1939 and was considered one of the better of the French tanks in 1940. It was intended for use by French cavalry formations. The overall impression of the vehicle is that it is very complete and authentic. The model is a recent release from Tamiya, and the detail of the kit is astonishing.
This vehicle is equipped with the wider wheels and tyres. Until now to accomplish this model, you could only find resin or metal kits among the available brands. My intention was to assemble this sFH18 in combat mode without limber. Having said that, this is not a simple kit to build. It is overly complex in my opinion but I applaud Tamiya for giving us what will be for a long time to come the ultimate P-51 in any scale. The M2 is the last of the ’84 versions that has been released by MFH and so many parts are carried over from the early versions. Even, many are on service today in some third world countries, and until a few years ago, in Europe, they were seeing action in the former Yugoslavia. Good in some aspects while deficient and unacceptable in others. It tries to represent a Tiger I Mid production.
