I have this kit and was wondering if it is worth building or should I just sell it.
Looks nice but cleaning up all the resin doesn't seem like something I want to tackle.
Anyone know what the original price was? I searched but couldn't find any on Ebay.
It was a huge hassle, largely because of the rather crude engineering and molding. You have to sand down since much of the kit was cast from open faced molds. The multi part body was warpy and its hard to get the body panels an even thickness. The level of detail is about like an old 1970s Bandai kit, despite the size of the model. Honestly, I think even the old Tamiya motorized Panzer II F has as much or more detail. Supposedly the kit is based on a reconstructed tank at the Saumur Museum so it does not represent one particular version of the Panzer II. The included photo etch is pretty basic and crude. It seems to be made from copper (?) and it really doesn't add much to the kit. The link tracks were not fun either. In the end it looked "okay" but it was a stuggle and no fun to build. The only reason I built this was I was doing it for a friend. I also built the 37mm PaK, Field Kitchen, 20mm FlaK, and another one that I forget now. All of them were pretty poor IMHO given the price and size.
