"1/35 Tamiya Wespe Italian Front"
Christopher A. Wing (Fresno, CA)
An excellent model kit from Tamiya. The kit has been upgraded in 2018 with a set of link and length tracks and four crew figures. The upper lengths of track have the sag molded in. The main gun is a two part barrel/muzzle brake assembly. Interior detail parts consist of storage containers, radio, MG 34, two MP 40s and ammo component parts. The white and red range pole parts require careful painting. A scale diagram in the instructions provides assistance with painting this part. Interior gun breech detail is adequate for this kit. Attachment of the tow cable to the front of the vehicle is tricky, however a diagram in the instructions will aid the builder with this task. Pioneer tool clamps could be better. The jack and jack box detail is acceptable. Overall parts fit and the plastic quality is first rate. If the builder opts to replicate the two tone paint camouflage pattern suggested in the instructions, then some airbrush painting skills are helpful. This is a good kit for entry level builders as the construction of this kit is straightforward with minimal to no fit issues.

"Great Kit"
alex295
This kit is well engineered and the fit is good. It goes together well...very well. It lends itself for nice sub assembly builds to allow quick build. It is an easy build that works well out of the box but also offers room for improvement. The only complaint I have is one of the track runs was a little iffy on the fit. It just needed a little patience to set up. I would suggest waiting to add the D32/A22...it's a gun support/travel lock. But it fragile and I broke mine during assembly. Fortunately it was easy to fix. I didn't use the kit's figures...instead I plan on using a Dragon set.

 
"Incredibly detailed"

Upon opening the box I was amazed. The parts are all crisp, and no warping was found. I just started the crew compartment with lots of details in that area alone for hours of fun. I'm looking forward to building more. I recommend this kit to anyone with a great sense of detailing.

 
"Very nice"

Everything is awesome about this kit. It falls into place. I'm not completely done yet. About 80% finish. I'll be buying another to company this one in a diaroma. The tracks are sweet that they sag
