Here is Tamiya’s Here is my Tamiya upgraded Wespe. I actually built most of this kit in early 2018 but for one reason or another, put the sub-assemblies back in the box without completing it.
In between shelving my Wespe and rescuing it from the Pile of Doom, I bought a very nice stowage set from Panzer Art (Item No. RE35-547). This was my inspiration for picking it up and finishing it.
Despite the 1996 origins of the main sprues, this upgraded Wespe features plenty of detail and stowage in the fighting compartment, and the addition of link and length tracks is very welcome.
The four new included figures deliver an instant vignette too. They really breathe life into the fighting compartment.
I’m writing this up for Model Military International magazine Issue 182.
Thanks to Tamiya Japan for the sample
Tamiya kits are distributed in the UK by The Hobby Company Limited for the sample.
