"reproduced without leaving"

"Set the body 3 Commander and loader half-length portrait is a sense of urgency, of the driver"

And my personal favourite.

"Modeled feeling rich"



Seriously though is this a newly tooled version of this tank?
Like the inclusion of crew figures but will need to add your own zimm.

Tamiya never did their own Elefant before and this is not the Italeri, Dragon or Nichimo kit.

I like the translated description of the model the best.

Elephant car wash heavy destroyers of the German army will be added to the series finally 1/35MM.

Why would they want to destroy car washes in the first place?
To prevent the Russians from using them?

The build up, painted kit that has been displayed has zimmerit added. The sprue shots show the parts lack zimmerit (not necessarily a bad thing)

... the commander's cupola is a joke! At least it looks very very simplistic.

My hope for a very basic interior was also in vain, so it seems.

Other than that, it looks very good. The interlocking armor plates are very well done.
