Carol,

I look forward to your Pzr II!

Those Bandais - the interior may not have been 100% accurate but they were more than 99% of what contemporary models offered. That's why I love 'em.

Pretty sure I built every one of their German and American kits back when they were new.

You didn't happen to keeps some color diorama inserts and instructions, did you?

I don't have any instructions, but I do still have some of the color shots.

Yes, these Bandai Pinpoint series kits are very nice considering their vintage. I had the Wespe given to me as a teenager and thought it was great; the only real let down was the jerry cans and the figures, who have a somewhat troglodytic appearance. I suppose that may well be the case with this kit too.

I expect if you had a mind to it might be possible to obtain some aftermarket tracks.

Great looking model . A real blast from the past , I still wish I had mine . I see Bandi must have based their kit on the same one Tamiya did , its got that extra left rear fender stowage bin . Really wish these kits would be rereleased today .
