Tamiya 1/35 British Universal Bren Carrier Mk.II # 35175 - Plastic Model Kit

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. 

• 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 143mm. 
• Includes new parts recreating stowed MG34 machine gun and ammo case, flare case, communications equipment, first aid box and more. 
• Features assembly-type tracks allowing depiction of sag. 
• Open-top fighting compartment allows inspection of interior details. 
• 10.5cm howitzer offers traverse and elevation/depression. 
• Comes with 4 figures in action pose – gunner, 2 loaders and commander. 
• 2 marking options recreate Wespe vehicles deployed in the Battle of Anzio, the Allies’ amphibious assault that led to the eventual taking of Rome. 
• Marking Option 1: 26th Panzer Division; Marking Option 2: 29th Panzer-Grenadier Division.

Tamiya has a reputation for detail and accuracy and this series is a perfect example of this. The Tamiya designers work from measurements and thousands of picture references of the full sizes vehicles, including every detail and facet, to produce the most detailed models in this scale in the world. The quality of these models is such that many museums around the world use the Tamiya 1/35 Military Miniature Series to depict history to the visiting public.

As with all Tamiya items, instructions are clear and concise, in order to allow the modeller to build a detailed model with relative ease. These assembly kits require paint and modelling glue available separately from all Tamiya dealers.
