This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.
The 35(t) tank was developed and produced in Czechoslovakia just before World War II; Czechoslovakia had become independent of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the 1930s after World War I. Armed with two machine guns and a Skoda 40-caliber 37mm cannon, this tank also sported a Skoda T-11/0 in-line six-cylinder liquid-cooled gasoline engine capable of producing 120 horsepower. It was handed over to the Czechoslovak Army beginning in 1936, and produced until 1938. In 1939, 130 of this tank were assigned to the Kyo Armored Division by the German Army, and were used in operations such as the invasion of Poland and France; they were also used in Operation Barbarossa in 1941.
Although this kit from Italeri is compactly sized, you'll be able to enjoy a realistic finish with condensed reproduction. The basic chassis is divided into three parts: the bottom plate, and the left and right side walls. The suspension is modeled with separate parts such as the arm and leaf spring; the tracks are a belt type that are easy to assemble. The upper part of the hull features details such as visible bolts for a heightened sense of realism. The turret is divided into left and right parts as well, and the 37mm main gun includes a mantlet. This is an excellent kit to represent a tank from the early days of the war in your collection -- order yours today!
