German Flame Thrower Tank Pz.Kpfw.III
Scaled for the ART OF TACTIC games, Zvezda has created another niche for the plastic modeler. Nine parts make up the tiny tank, ten if you add the game flag. All the parts are nicely detailed and the overall fit is pretty good. My only gripe would be the sprue connections could have been more user-friendly. I will point out that during construction I did use glue, just to tighten up the seams; maybe the typical gamer would not be bothered by this, but, as a typical modeler, it bothered me…but not a big deal. I spent around 30 minutes on the build before it went to the paint shop. Also included in the box is a game flag (to be attached to the tank) and game card. There are no decals or painting charts provided with the kit.
Bottom line: I don’t know anything about the game, but this game piece is a very nice model. I highly recommend it to anyone at any reasonable age group. My thanks to Zvezda, Dragon USA, and IPMS for the opportunity to review such a nice and enjoyable model kit.
