Hobby Fan 1/35th Kit HF024
Review by Terry Ashley

Hobby Fan

Another complete resin kit from Hobby Fan consisting of 58 finely cast resin pieces that build into an impressive model. Also included is a decal sheet with many small stencil markings found on the missile and base.

Cast in the usual cream resin and large casting blocks the level of detail is excellent. The triangular cradle for the missile cast in one piece is an example of the level of casting expertise in these kits.

The missile is cast in one piece with separate rear fins and the large base is also a single casting. Added to this is many finely cast details that will require care to remove from their casting blocks.

Alternate wheels are provided for the U.S. and German Army versions featuring different tread patterns and "Good Year" embossing on the U.S. wheels This leaves a spare set for the spares box, can't complain at that given the nice detail on the wheels.

Construction is fairly straightforward and providing you take care with the finer parts shouldn't prove a problem. The instructions give a good indication of where the parts go, something that can be a problem in resin kits.

Overall a very nice kit of an interesting subject that should please those who like something a little different.
