The Toldi I tanks entered Hungarian service about 1940. They were used by the Hungarian Army against Yugoslavia in 1941. They were mostly used against the U.S.S.R. between 1941 and 1944. Their primary role was reconnaissance, due to their light armor and good communications equipment. They were not effective against the Soviet T-34 when they encountered them in operation Barbarossa.

When I opened the box I found: one small bag of resin parts, one small bag with photo etch parts, a die cut clear plastic sheet used for the headlights, and the instruction sheet.

All of the parts are molded in a grey/green resin, and are crisp, very well molded, and have excellent detail. The replacement mufflers are a sight to behold, and will look excellent when installed. There are also two nicely-molded resin tool boxes for the fenders, and many other small detail parts.

The photo etch set has various details including a nifty assembly to completely replace the front driver's hatch. There are new headlights and guards, and a grill for the rear underside of the tank.

The instruction sheet is fantastic. The drawings are clear, and you will have no trouble understanding the instructions. Kudos to SBS!

All in all, this set is a great value, and I am looking forward to - and will definitely be using it - on my Toldi when I get to building it. As a matter of fact, SBS also makes other upgrades for the Toldi series tanks, as well as some beautiful meta gun barrels that I have already purchased.
