FirstLook

 

CMK released a 1/35 scale Panzer 35(t) during the 1990s. This was an injection moulded styrene kit that was really quite nice.

Now, in 2004, CMK has released a new version of the kit that includes the original four plastic sprues plus upgraded multimedia parts for the exterior of the vehicle.

These include a useful photo-etched fret, some nice resin parts and some of the best turned brass gun barrels that I have ever seen. The two machine gun barrels and the 20mm barrel are all very small, but their diminutive size, if anything else, makes them even more impressive. The perforations in the muzzle brake of the main gun are especially good.

 

 

The only negative about the kit are the tracks, but Model Kasten make a very nice replacement set.

Markings are supplied for a colourful Slovak Army vehicle in a lively camouflage pattern, and a German vehicle in Panzer Grey. In German use, these vehicles and 38(t)'s were used in the invasion of Poland and France, but there finish was pretty much limited to Panzer Grey.

 

 

CMK's Upgraded Pz.Kpfw.35(t) is a great package. CMK also offers an interior for this vehicle. What a showstopper that combination would be!

Highly Recommended


Thanks to CMK for the review sample.
