I have waited with baited breath for this kit since it was announced, at last I can do the Afrika Korps with the early tanks that they fought most of their famous battles with. I scooped this kit up from Michigan Toy Soldier when it came out and was very happy when I got it home and opened the box. Plastic Soldier Company have once again (as expected) produced a gem. All of the parts you need to build five copies of any of the versions listed on the box in delicate fine detail. This is the sort of thing that warms the heart of a guy that came to wargaming from the static display model side of things, these are simply lovely. But enough of my blather, on to the pictures!
the box front, evocative if not detailed
just sand, really guys, you could do better
box and contents
sprue, side A
sprue, side B
oooooh! look at the details, gosh I love this stuff
our old friends, German tank commanders (new ones would be nice guys)
details, ahhh, look at 'em
side-hull escape hatches in 1/100
again with the top-drawer paper and printing of what can only be
(generously) described as a primitive instruction set, truly odd
not even any arrows pointing to where the parts go
This leaves me pawing through my books trying to decide how many of which type I need to build, alternately (given the very reasonable prices) I could just build a company of each type and be certain that I had all my bases are covered!
Very Highly Recommended, John
