One of these would be very useful in 1/35th. Wonder what the Italeri kit is like?
I've built the Italeri 1/35 kit before-- it's a good kit and a relatively "new" release-- I think it was released about five years ago, but it's a different model with a soft top, and different tank design. Lately it's been a little hard to find. CMK released a conversion kit as well in 1/72, and Academy released one in 1/72 too. I think Tamiya released one in 1/48. I have not seen a Tamiya 1/35 release of the Italeri kit as mentioned in the previous post-- but if so, it would have a soft top and different tank.
