Today there is something other than a pure model. With TANK WARS there is a strategy game from COBI that also contains a few small models to build.

The assault tank, referred to by the Allies as Brummbär, is currently the only COBI model that still has the side skirts. This article shows how fun to build and the quality of the slightly older model is.
