Interesting German Armored Car
By rockykeele May 26, 2017
Tamiya's Sd.Kfx.231 is an interesting early WWII 10 wheeled German armored car. The kit itself is not too difficult, but gives lots of detail and options. There are many hatches that can be posed open or closed. I left the turret top hatches open, but closed all the others. The fit of these hatches was a little sloppy, and I needed to use some water based putty to fill in the gaps. There are a handful of ejector pin marks that need filling as well, but nothing to difficult. The only internal detail is the breach end of the 20mm cannon (with a turned metal barrel) and the machine gun in the turret. The detail underneath includes decent suspension, exhaust pipes, and movable front wheels. The kit comes with a single commander figure in a relaxed pose. You get three choices of head gear for the figure. There are only a small number of decals for the choice of two vehicles, and they went down nicely with a bit of decal solvent. Since this is an early war vehicle, the only paint option is German Grey. Overall, I'm very happy with the results of this simple build.

Simple but nice
By donaldgerald June 9, 2017
This would make an ideal kit for relative beginners. The price is reasonable, there are not a lot of small parts, the instructions are good, and the overall kit detail is good, and is a fairly quick build. A metal barrel is included as well as a regular plastic barrel. There are 3 choices for heads which I like because that leaves 2 for my spares box. All heads have nice detail. If the would have included a couple of walking soldiers the kit would have been better. Some of the hatch covers could have fit better, but over all the fit is OK. I enjoyed building this kit. You really cant go wrong with a Tamiya kit.

Tamiya takeover of Italeri kits
By dellisj August 14, 2017
Compared w/other, strictly Tamiya kits, this kit is poor. The Italeri kit is of the Sd.Kfz. 232 which differs only in the inclusion of a large frame antenna & the addition by Tamiya of the smoke dischargers at the front & the AA rail around the turret hatch-covers, which appears to have been melted(?) in the photos - it should be continuous around 3 sides of hatch. Also, the semaphores (the turn indicators on each side of the upper hull) are upside-down - they should be upright. I would hope Tamiya improved the quality of the plastic and added their own instructions, which are always top-notch. But yes, the various pistol & vision & engine cooling port covers are poorly made, being too small to cover the openings they're meant to cover. The front axle assembly is weak, although the front wheels on the real-thing are small & look inadequate so that's OK. If this had been made by Tamiya it may well have had vinyl tires. To expand on my recommendation, I would not recommend this to a beginner because it may well be frustrating. A novice modeler should start with WELL-MADE kits with GOOD INSTRUCTIONS (& a great number of parts does NOT make a kit better). BEST means QUALITY PLASTIC, parts that don't exceed the maker's technology, GOOD FIT that doesn't over-tax the builder's ability such as PINS & SOCKETS rather than BUMPS & DIPS so assemblies can be DRY FITTED before cementing and so on. And who can be trusted to provide such kits? TAMIYA. But make sure that the kit IS TAMIYA & not an Italeri take-over that sullies their good name. MODELS should be FUN! NOT TEDIOUS.
