Tamiya Wespe

Excellent service and delivery from Sunward This is the 1st AFV I've built with an open feature. Lots more work to paint and weather but it's all good. Another quality kit from Tamiya with no issues building . I chose to glue the drive and road wheels to the track which will make it easier detailing the suspension.

Description

This model faithfully recreates the German Self-Propelled Howitzer Wespe. It is a classic model from within the Tamiya catalogue, but this version includes updated parts and new marking options for vehicles that fought on the Italian front.

Originally designed as a stopgap, with a production run of 676, this Pz.Kpfw.II chassis-based howitzer exceeded German expectations. Intended mainly for infantry support, the Pz.Kpfw.II’s moving turret was replaced with a boxy stationary superstructure equipped with the Type 18/2 10.5cm L/28 howitzer. While the crew of 5 were not blessed with overwhelming protection, their vehicle was a mobile threat to Allied forces nonetheless.

Scale 1/35

Assembly and painting required. Kit does not include model cement glue, paint, and tools. Adult supervision where required.
