"Great newly tooled kit"
iraqiwildman (Jefferson City, MO)
Tamiya's French Light Tank R35 is a new tooled kit of the pre-World War II tank. By the 1930s French military planners could no longer ignore the obsolescence of their masterpiece FT17 tank from late WWI, and work started on a genuine successor to fill the void. One of the answers they came up with was the R35 light tank, which utilized rolled steel lower and three-piece cast upper hull designs and was armed with the short barreled 37mm gun. It was crewed by two. When hostilities with Nazi Germany burst into life in May 1940 the R35 was right in the front line. While it showed its armor was reliable, the 37mm gun was inadequate when it came to take out German armor. The Fall of France in June 1940 meant that production of the R35 was curtailed to approximately 1,600 units. This new kit consists of four sprues, a small decal sheet, instruction sheet and some poly caps. Two of the sprues are the same since they are the tracks and suspension. The turret comes loose. There is no photo etched or clear parts included. The instruction sheet is 21 steps long and is typical Tamiya folded design with it being five pages long when unfolded. I like to copy each page separately, three-hole punch the copies and put them in a binder to make a booklet. This is so much easier to just turn pages then fold and unfold the long original instruction sheet. There is a separate booklet of background information on the tank and two color plates for painting and decal placement. The decal sheet is only about 2 by 5 and has about 20 decals for two vehicles.
