"Small but fun tank"
rockykeele (Tucson, AZ)
The Tamiya German Panzerkampfwagen II was a fun, simple kit to assemble. The builder can choose to build a European version, or an Afrika Corps version. The kit comes with a tank commander and 4 infantrymen (with the option to use Afrika Corps desert helmets or regular infantry helmets - although some troops are in shorts). As with most Tamiya kits, accessories(shovel, jack, section of extra tank tread, crowbar, etc.) come stock. The completed kit is rather small (as was the real tank) and is completely dwarfed by other WWII tanks such as the Panther and Tiger. The contrast with the larger tanks gives it some character though, in my opinion.

"Small Tank, Big Fun"
This kit has been around forever but don't let that turn you away. It's not super detailed or complex but it is a good quality build. The molds were quite clean considering the age and the parts fit really well. The figures are actually quite good also. It's a pretty easy build making this a great intro model or a good one for younger modelers. The downsides are the rubber band style tracks and the motor holes on the underside of the hull. However, those cons are of little concern when compared to the low price.

"Great for Beginners"
This is an excellent Tank Model for beginners Want to get your son into a good hobby??. One does not feel overwhelmed by too many pieces. Smaller than other Tanks, but makes you appreciate the dimensions of all other Tank and accessories you may have already built. Has the all important action figures 4 total to add to realistic image of an actual War action taking place. ONE HELPFUL NOTE ON ASSEMBLING ANY TANK TRACKS.......if you are having trouble snapping or gluing tracks together, USE A STAPLER!!!!. Makes a nice tight fit!!!!!

"Great Little Panzer II"
Being my first tank build in a over a decade, this was a great way to get back into building armor. Tamiya quality shows throughout, and although it is an older kit, the flash was non existent and parts fit perfectly. Decals were numerous and build options were available too, allowing you to build more that one variant of the tank. You can't go wrong for such a cheap price and I highly recommend this tank for those just getting into the hobby or for someone more experienced who just wants to complete a quick build without complications of PE or a high parts count. Again, highly recommended!
