understand this is a “paper panzer" that was in planning
to replace the Pz II Ausf. L Luchs but never reached the prototype
stage nor production, though the turret was later used on the Sd.Kfz.
234/2 Puma armored car.
I counted approximately about 72 cast resin parts on pour plugs and 17 etched brass parts on one fret. Detail and casting quality is superb with no significant air bubbles or defects, just cutting off the pour plugs and minor flash to clean up. I know the box states 100 resin parts, not 72 but the kit appears complete and with so many parts it is easy for me to miscount. There are four lengths of 11.7-cm long track. There are no decal markings nor crew figures included
look to be defect free and crisply molded with pronounced detail.
The crew hatches are molded closed but the muzzle of the 5-cm gun
barrel is molded open. The assembly instructions are great, well thought
out and drawn, especially considering what we typically get with resin
This model was a review sample from OKB Grigorov and I thank OKB for this, though I normally purchase my OKB Grigorov products at
