1/35th Tristar/HobbyBoss Panzerkampfwagen 1 Ausf A Sd. Kfz. 101

A TANK! Yes it’s not all aircraft, tanks took part too and the Panzer 1 is one of my favorites. Little more than a small tractor with machine guns the Panzer 1 was revolutionary in design for its day, its the bench mark from which all the panzers evolved and had a very long career stretching from Spain to Russia with a brief stop off in Africa.

The kit itself is actually now discontinued under the Tristar name but the same kit can now be bought under the guise of HobbyBoss who have bought up the moulds. The kit has all the parts to make various version of the Panzer 1 a and has a full interior including engine. The tracks are individual and will be time consuming to put together (but rewarding once completed).

The level of detail is exceptional and everything is in the box to give you very detailed model.

Markings include a Spanish example which is another bonus and this is an all grey tank with a few markings on the front top and sides.

Highly recommend.
