"West German Leopard 1 Tank 1/35 Scale Tamiya"
smokencoffee
This is an older but still very good kit from Tamiya. It assembles quite well strait out of the box, and would be a really good beginner model for a young model builder who likes tanks. The Leopard 1 was the first German designed tank after the 2nd world war. It was used by West Germany and other NATO forces. There is not to much to the kit, being older. It does not have separate suspension parts or individual track links and such. So that is what makes it good for a starter kit for a younger builder. For the advanced builder it can be a good addition to a collection out of the box. Or a great starting point for a super detailed project. Some of the downsides other then the ones I already mentioned would be the figure that comes with the kit and the lack of some other detail parts that could be in there as well. The machine gun on the top of the turret has no ammo, and there could be a lot more to the decal sheet. Some photo-etched parts would also be a good addition along with a new commander figure. In conclusion, this is a nice kit, and could be a great project for any model builder and with a little effort a nice display piece in your tank collection. Happy Model Building!

"Tamiya price and quality..."
Nucleartestrabbit
This is a very easy build... Its actually probably the easiest one I’ve had yet and is very affordable. Being an older model it is not without out its flaws. It has the holes common with most of the older tamiya models which you can patch with putty unfortunately though unlike the other tamiya models though where you can ignore the holes on the bottom this one has some pretty big and obvious ones near the rear drive sprockets. I was also a little disappointed to find out the stowage racks lacked a bottom, I’m probably going to scratch build some before I paint it. I did find quite a few injection marks that were in places that they’d be visible but they aren’t in places that are super obvious... I’d also recommend keeping around reference material because some of the pictures aren’t very clear on the orientation for things like say the barrel evacuator. Some parts were a little warped and required clamping to get them to bond but that’s likely an individual thing with my kit and may or may not be an issue... oh if you are planning on building this hatch open I recommend insuring a good fit between the hatch and the turret before installing the commanders cupola. I ended up breaking the mounting peg off trying to get it to fit but I was building it hatch down anyway though so no big deal. All in all despite its shortcomings it’s still a great kit. It looks like it’s supposed too and has reasonably good detailing... at only $20 it is well worth the investment and is by far one of the easiest builds I’ve seen. The quality at this price point alone makes it worthwhile.

 
"Fun kit with some slight drawbacks"
rockykeele (Tucson, AZ)
The German Leopard Medium Tank is an impressive kit representing a post WWII German tank. The kit has nice detail, including a molded rough surface on the hull. The kit includes all the accessories that Tamiya generously gives, including shovels, picks, saw, cables, etc. I was slightly dissapointed in the one figure(just the upper torso) that comes with this tank, as it seems slightly too small for the 1/35 scale. It includes a metal screen for the engine compartment that really looked nice on the completed model. The treads are the usual one piece rubber type, with good detail on both sides. I did not care for the rubber wheel plugs that attach the wheels to the suspension, however, as they leave unsightly gaps in the wheel assemblies. As with many Tamiya kits, this one does not offer the builder much to do with regards to the lower hull and suspension - it is all pre-molded as one piece. Even with these slight drawbacks, the kit turned out looking very nice, and it was a fun build.

 
"Nice looking kit, but some issues"
mcurry40
Overall, this kit was fun and easy to build, like any other Tamiya kit, however the kit that I received had some minor issues, such as some parts not fitting correctly at first, as well as the gun barrel and one of the tracks being warped, however I was able to easily fix these issues with the tools that I had.
