    Good value model, it’s an old kit as other’s have mentioned but you’ll hardly notice unless you’re used to super high end stuff. You have a couple of different options on how to finish it, I decided to leave the armour plates off in the end as it was just obscuring all the lovely details I’d spent time on painting. Tracks we’re a bit of a pain but guess this is normal at this price point, I’d recommend you don’t try to paint them unless you have an airbrush as it may just peel off, I decided to just dry brush them and they look fine

    An older kit by Tamiya. Still a pleasant build. Minimal fiddlelybparts. Well crafted. Styrene parts, with rubber band type tracks. One figure included. Builds into a very nice representation of the original. With a good build and paint, it makes a nice model.

    Another great WW2 model from Tamiya. Plenty of details throughout, with easy to follow instruction. My 11 yr old son and I chose this model and the M41 Walker Bulldog to build together. It’s one of the more complex model he’s ever worked on, but enjoying the learning process of prepping, priming, painting and assembly, and there’s plenty to do for both of us. Some tiny parts require a steady hand with tweezers, and some patience. We are watching some historic film footage, and deciding on what paint scheme to do…maybe even a simple diorama might be fun!

    I just love these old Tamiya kits from the 1970’s. This went together well and was a joy to build. The kit is inexpensive for a 1:35 scale model and is great for trying out new skills. I utilized the salt technique on this model and was very pleased with the results obtained. The decals supplied allow for different versions of the vehicle, I will definitely be making a second purchase to do this. Highly recommended for all ability levels.

    Tamiya is perhaps the biggest and best catalog it the modeling world. This model is not my first. But it would be a good first for young people starting in the hobby.

    A really nice Tamiya model kit from the 70th but still good, not to dificult to build and can be converted with a bit skill into a interesting model of the StuG IV. Details and quality are good but not optimal (based on the age of the kit), some flashes, of course you will also need sandpaper, price is really ok and the kit makes fun to built, also for experienced model builder it is still an interesting kit. The kit includes decals for diferent versions. The instructions are basic, correct painting instructions can be easy found in the net.

    Another really nice Tamiya model. Very detailed and realistic and the price was reasonable. But my eyes aren’t so great anymore so I may have to stay away from tanks as painting 36 different road wheels black was not easy for me. The instructions can also be a bit confusing at times and could use more explanation. For example, if you plan on having the commander cupola closed, you don’t want to glue on the part for the periscope several steps earlier but that is never mentioned. I may have to stick with planes moving forward.

    Fantastic kit great value for money just started doing modelling again after 25 years and learning to airbrush really pleased with the result and would reccomend this kit to a new starter as you cannot beat tamiya kits even ones this old

    great model at a great price. hadn’t built any plastic models since i was a teenager (20 years ago!) and decided to get back into building models as a way to relax. Previously I’d built 1:72 fighter jets, so this was a little different, but i managed it easily – took about 4-5 hours in total.

    It’s fairly simple to build, but i would suggest getting some tools to help your construction – hobby knife, sand paper etc and there’s plenty of online tutorials regarding building models. So i’d rate this as a great starter model

    My next step is to get some paint and paint it….

    It’s a Tamiya. Due to having more time on my hands than I want I thought I’d make a model kit… Ever since the 70s I’ve found Tamiya kits to be excellent, this one is no exception.

    Can’t wait to build this gem

    This was the usual old fashioned quality from Tamiya. Being an older model, don’t expect a high level of detail, but do expect an excellent fit to all parts, an easy to follow set of instructions, and a fairly quick build overall. The figure included with this model is quite good and has a terrific pose when placed inside the hatch. Again, with the simplicity of this model, the armor shields on the destroyers sides are molded as one piece, but if you want to spend a bit of extra time and effort, you can run a hobby knife down the seams in the molding to separate the one part into 5 separate shields per side. Somewhat thick decals come with this model that look a bit more like a sticker, but most modelers can scrounge up some spare German markings if they wish to replace them. This kit is well worth the low price.

    I received this one for Christmas and was pleased by the usual Tamiya quality. Everything looked perfect and it is about a mid-level assembly kit. The commander’s pose is very good looking and I didn’t have any problems assembling him except for flash, which takes nothing but 4 minutes of sanding. The add-on/optional cement blocks were fun, and the plastic adheres to paint very well. I painted it in a dark-ish autumn camouflage loosly based on the “ambush” pattern. It comes with those rubber tracks that you heat and meld together, not piece by piece tracks that some people swear by and others go insane trying to piece together. Overall a 5 star, solid Tamiya kit, regardless of its age, and I definitely recommend buying it.
