DESCRIPTION

TAMIYA 1/35 HUMMEL (LATE PRODUCTION)

Catch the Buzz!
The Hummel was developed by German designers in short time, intended to provide a quick boost for troops that had begun to struggle in the aftermath of their invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. Its chassis was a hybrid using parts from the Pz.Kpfw.III and IV, and the gun was the powerful sFH18/1 15cm piece that fired 43.5kg howitzer rounds distances up to and over 13 kilometers. Hummels joined the fray from 1943 in the showdown Battle of Kursk, and served through the second half of WWII.

About the Model
This is a 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 190mm, width: 84mm.
The model authentically captures the Hummel form with thin fighting compartment armor and late production integrated driving compartment.
Features coordinated sight and 15cm howitzer elevation.
Assembly type late production tracks feature one-piece straight sections for realistic depiction of upper run “sag.”
Includes 3 figures depicted in the act of loading shells. Comes with 2 marking options, for Eastern and Western Front vehicles.
The highly detailed model artfully captures the form of the powerful Hummel, with its 15cm gun and open top fighting compartment.     
Three highly realistic figures are depicted in the act of loading shells. They are accompanied by a wealth of accessories in the kit.     
The figures feature their M43 uniform and field caps. Howitzer shells have their stencils recreated via decals.
There is plenty to look at in the fighting compartment, not least the gun breech and its sight, which moves in concert with the barrel.     
The massive gun moves smoothly thanks to poly caps and metal shaft components, and holds it place well when you have it at the desired angle.     
The late production tracks, have single-piece straight sections for an accurate, fuss-free finish.
