Tamiya 1/35 Panzer II Ausf F/G scale model kit.
Both the Panzer I and II were considered as stopgaps before the arrival of more advanced models, namely the Panzer III and IV. Despite of this, the Panzer II remained in service throughout the war, being the main light tank in German service and being used as a scout, although many wheeled vehicles preformed this specialized task far better. In this particular role, the Panzer II lacked both speed and range.
It was gradually improved and produced until 1943, as no satisfactory replacement was ready in time. The Panzer II Ausf.F was built with the thicker 30 mm armour on the front of the tank hull and 30 mm armour of the front of the turret.
Model kit includes realistic exterior detailing, detailed flexible tracks and five crew figures.
Great little kit surprise extra birthday present for my ten year old son… superb value for money with 5 figures
Nice model, reasonably priced. Haven't made it yet ,but Tamiya are good ones anyway. Fast delivery.
Good starter kit, nice Tamiya quality as usual even for one made so long ago (1970’s)! Would recommend for anyone looking for an entry into 1/35 scale or if you want a kit to build over a day or 2
Really enjoyed building and painting my Panzer II. The kit does show its age but is simple to build. Used it as a test bed for some techniques and new paints and for that role it has been perfect, as its nice and cheap.
It requires very little trimming and looks great
