The construction technique of the lower hull was previously used primarily on the 1:48 models and is now being used more frequently on larger sets. Plates and bricks are stacked on top of each other and then tilted 90 degrees. This gives you a completely stud-free, smooth surface. Several layers of plates are placed on it by reversing the direction of construction, which ensures enormous stability but also great tension. After the side skirts have been built separately, only various hatches and the barrel have to be attached. Of course, this tank destroyer doesn’t have a turret. The tracks only come last. They run incredibly easily and even roll. However, they are also so smooth that they only slide on smooth surfaces.

There are 2 ways to build and the two models. The first construction phase is the basis for both variants. Then you decide for either the tank destroyer or the flame tank, which has slight differences in the area of the gun. But you can also rebuild it afterwards without having to completely disassemble it again. I show you how to do this in my video.


The model is really great, even if I don’t really like the 1:35 scale. Yes, it goes better with the minifigures, but I don’t buy the sets for the figures. searching is not really a bargain. For me it comes as a flame tank on the shelf and looks very good there with the winter camouflage pattern.
