This is a Trumpeter 1/16 scale Panzer IV F2 version. There are a fair amount of Panzer IV 1/16 scale model kits. However, most of them are late versions with armor skirts. I wanted to avoid the armor skirts because I am going to add the entire Angel fish team on the tank, and armor skirts block turret hatches.Continue reading “Trumpeter 1/16 scale Panzer IV Ausf.F2”

This is Type 94 tankette 1/16 scale. This is going to be my last 1/16 scale tank kit from Takom because I’ve purchased all of their 1/16 scale kits.
The type 94 is a really tiny tank. I am not even sure whether this tank can be classified as a light tank. It is more like a lightly armored fighting vehicle that happens to have tracks on it.Continue reading “Type 94 1/16 scale by Takom”
This is Renault FT 1/16 by Takom. I actually sourced this within Canada which surprised me since it’s rare to be able to get anything uncommon in this country.Continue reading “Renault FT 1/16 by Takom”
This is Heng Long T-34 1/16 scale RC. The box is about 58cm in width, 28cm in height. In inches, it’s 23 by 11 inches.
Basically, it’s a huge box. You can get this fairly cheap, far cheaper than what you’d have to pay for a proper 1/16 scale T-34 kit which you will need to piece together and then paint. I’ve got this on a sale for about 270 CAD (Tax/shipping included) in 2019.
This is Hobby boss Tiger 1/16 scale kit, mid production model. For a 1/16 scale tank kit, this is brutally cheap. You should be able to grab this at 75 USD. However, due to its massive box size, do expect to shell out a fair amount for shipping.Continue reading “Hobby Boss Tiger 1/16 scale mid-production”

I’ve been dormant in tank building for a while simply because there was nothing else for me to build. However, deep down, I’ve always wanted to get into 1/16 kits because 1/35 tanks are … just too small and there are no decent 1/35 figures to go with.
In 1/16 scale, there are plenty of choices for GuP figures.
