"When you do new with an old kit"
ArcticFox (Kingston On Canada)
The kit may be old and have many flaw, but if you are a beginner or just want to relax and building something easy it will do the job. Those who say the kit is full of inaccuracy, you may be right but it is not different for newer Panther Kit regardless the company. All have some degree of inaccuracy because in the 4 years the Panther was built by the German, every month that pass there where change on the vehicle as it exit the production line. It's not like there was only 3 models ever made (Panther D, A and G) without any modification during there production. For example if different company (Tamiya, Dragon or Trumpeter) was to put on the market a kit of a Panther Ausf A, depending of the company they will have some difference in the component for the same types of Panther. When the kit was originally release it was as a RC Tank, and many evidence can be found as you are building it. The lower hull still show the holes in the bottom, there is a battery holder inside the hull, the teeth on the return wheel are just few examples of it's origin. Regardless it will not be a problem for building it and you can easily fix that. But if you are a beginner it should not bother you if it is not fix. Despite being an old kit and for some who say you get what you pay for, overall it is not that bad. The kit come with rubber track, fairly good details components on the vehicle, like you can see the welding seams everywhere and many surfaces of the vehicle show good details. The kit include 2 crew members (Commander and driver). Waterslide Decals It is probably one the best set of decals I ever found in a kit. You may be restricted with the choice of the numbers you will put on your vehicle but I find it really minor. Numbers are 223 - 309 and 421 but the great think is you have 3 set or should I say 4 set of each number. The german forces put the number on there tank on the left and right side of the turret and also at the rear of the turret on the storage box and if there is no storage box sometimes they paint of a smaller size the number at the back of the turret. Also they have 4 standard german cross, 3 will be use with this vehicle (one on each side and on the back). 1 Victory marking to be place on the barrel. And you have the option of 10 different Divisional Signs to be place on the front right of the vehicle (Totenkopf (1942-1945), Hohenstaufen (1944), Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler (1943-1945), 3 panzer division (1940-1945), 18 Panzer Division (1940-1945), 13 Panzer Division (1940-1945), 4 Panzer Division (1940 campaign of France), Das Reich (1942), Grossdeutschland (1940-1945) and 6 Panzer Division (1941-1945). Painting Unfortunately for the beginner there is no help. The kit offer only a basic color information/explanation use by the German throughout the war. There is no color reference for the different component (tools, exhaust, road wheel, etc). With some research over the internet you should be able to find easily all information needed. Conclusion For a beginner it is a great kit to consider. It's inexpensive, easy to put together (172 parts), so nothing to fancy. For those, more advance modeler you may consider this kit if you are more interested of spending your time in painting/weathering instead of building. It will give you a good opportunity to experience some paint scheme and weathering details at a fraction of the cost of a more details kit.

"Great Model"
This is a great model kit. I would recommend it for all skill levels. The one thing I dislike is the size. It seems a little large for 1/35th Scale. Other than that, I loved this model, and the quality of this with the technology they had back in the 70's is amazing. It includes very detailed parts and one and a half figures. I also dislike the fact that the gun barrel is molded in two halves, which means that, without a bit of work, it can come out slightly odd looking.

"Older mold surpassed by more modern offerings"
Larry E (NYC)
Built this kit many years ago, one of Mr. Tamiya's early offerings from the 1970's. At the time it was a nice rendition of a Panther for your shelf. It has a seamless fit,(like all Tamiya kits), that new modelers will like. But it has been surpassed by newer offerings from Meng, Tankom & Dragon to name a few. Better than average but falls short when compared to newer molds.

"Good for beginners"
Very good kit, decent detail for the price, easy to assemble.* * -Tracks can be difficult to put together if you don't really know to assemble them (Good way, at least I found, is to heat up some pliers and crush the connectors together) -Needed to Dremel out some of the roadwheels so they would fit, but wasn't too much of a problem. All in all I'd recommend this kit for people with very basic knowledge.


  • NOTE: Please keep all small parts and sharp edges away from children ages 3 and under.
  • Care should be taken when using various tools and modeling knife.
