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!
Thanks to CMK for the review
