any recommendations on a 1/35 WW1 tank kit ?


Recommended Posts

getting bored with 1/32 aircraft, I fancy something different but have no idea about either the subject or the kit manufacturers so any recommendations would be very helpful.

thanks

Hi Neil.

You got some WWI tanks from Takom i n135 (also a Mark Iv from Tamiya)

As far for armour car, just check Copper State Models as they have several armour cars in there catalogue and are very very good.

Check out the A7v ww1 German tank by Meng. They offer two vesions.

As Fran said Copper State Models has a bunch of great armored car models from WWI. 

Takom has a whippet, (Meng also), Mk1, Mk IV, and Mk V tanks, also the St. Chamond (early/late).

Takom has a 1/16 Renault ft in cannon and mg variants... Please

note that the ammo drums in the mg variant are for the wrong

gun! They are for a later machine gun, the Reibel,..don't install the racks. Hobby Boss has their own St. Chamond tanks as well

as Shneider CA tanks.

Meng also has 1/35 Ft models.

Takom Mark VI but buy replacement tracks, I think the tracks I used were from Master…..they were not metal……..

The initial Takom MK IV tracks were awful multi-piece nightmares.

Later, they offered replacement one-piece snap together tracks that are

very good. In later boxings these are included. Their two-in-one MkIV Male/female kit has these, their Mk I kits, their Mk V kit, and their Tadpole Mk IV also have the snap tracks. I was lucky to find a couple of these track

sets that I can use on the earlier releases. The Takom Whippet also has good snap-together tracks.
