SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 BOX PACKAGENow I chose the 35 (t) light tank. Did it become a kit like the ruins of the ancient civilization? There is a new kit of Bronco now. Still now, if I make this kit carefully, it will surely be a cool German light tank.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 MAKINGI can see many chassis parts, such as partially connected caterpillars; the assembling will be completed without much effort after the chassis is over.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 MAKINGIt is less troublesome to assemble the chassis at a dash, including fine adjustment to the ground plane.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 MAKING SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 MAKINGIt is like the B1 Bis French tank or Matilda British tank I made before, which has a lot of small rolling wheels. I think this tank’s characteristics are represented well because this 35 (t) roller is visible as all the rolling wheels are exposed.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 MAKINGThis time it is a partially connected caterpillar, but once I have connected it in a large space like ordinarily connected tracks, I wound them around the chassis. I think it is easier to assemble this way if you do not mistake the point of gluing and bending.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 MAKINGThere was the advice of self-additional work for the code of the headlights and others on the assembly instruction. I did as much additional work as I wanted. In addition, I added an antenna and additional rod-like parts of the side panel with metal wire.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 MAKINGCurrently, Japan is a Holiday Season called Golden Week, and when I went to Ginza yesterday, it was very crowded. People who do not go on a trip, like me, many people go out for dinner. I am tired of walking in the crowd. I was lucky to buy a 50% sale at GAP and a shirt for JPY10,000 for JPY5,000. Whether it is worth 5,000 yen from the beginning, is it a double price? Well, I am satisfied to buy my favorite pattern.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 MAKINGMolding is better after the wire is changed for nylon threads. I made simple work on OVM’s hook.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 MAKINGAre they injection pin marks that look round at the most visible part, the center of the tracks? This isn’t good. It is a fatal mark for people who value caterpillars.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 PAINTINGI buried the injection pin marks in the middle of the caterpillar with putty. I did not check it carefully here, so the finish was not in such a good condition.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 PAINTING SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 FINISHED WORKGerman 35(t) light tank was completed. Although it is a light tank, the main gun was a 37 mm cannon, the front armor was 25 mm, and the side was 16 mm. This exceeded the performance of Panzerkampfwagen type I and II Light Tank.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 FINISHED WORK SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe 35(t) tank’s suspension was a 350 mm diameter, 94 mm wide road wheels. It was challenging to make it pretty much when making this plastic model. Maintaining a system connecting the road wheels with the outer and inner leaf springs was complicated.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 FINISHED WORKOn weekdays, I bought pajamas at a luxury department store. I usually use a cheap store like UNIQLO, but this time I got a little extravagance. It is an impression that there were five or more salespeople for each customer. Too many!! On weekdays it may be better for salespeople and convenient for customers to make business hours 15: 00 ~ 21: 00. But now, at last, because the improvement of the working environment is essential in Japan, the shift that is too inhuman is terrible.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 FINISHED WORKI added some extra work detail and changed some parts, and I added three-dimensional mud with the Tamiya scene texture material.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 FINISHED WORKIt is a tank developed in Czechoslovakia, this time marking the 11th tank regiment of the 1st light armored division used by the German Army after Czechoslovakia was annexed. It was at the time of the invasion of Poland in 1939.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 FINISHED WORKI have not made a gray German tank recently. I prefer to mix the gray area with a relatively bright color.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 FINISHED WORKWhen Nazi Germany expanded its territory, air superiority was maintained, and this sizeable white belt was considered to be the marking of the identification of a friend or foe. Around 1943, they had to take pains to avoid being found in the enemy aircraft.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 FINISHED WORKI made a headlight with a clear resin, but I realized it was better to shine a little more. It did not work very well.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 FINISHED WORKWell, did I overdo the muffler? It might have been better to drop the tone a little more, but I felt it was good while painting.

SKODA Pz. Kpfw. 35 (t) CMK 1/35 FINISHED WORKAlthough it is an old kit, it is pretty easy to assemble. It is innovative that the partially connected tracks. There are no gaps while building this kit. The kit released in the Tamiya package was very interesting in figures and additional parts, but the CMK original is not bad. I do not dislike assembling old Eastern European kits while struggling. It was pretty enjoyable to make. It was quite enjoyable to produce. Czechoslovakia is an excellent country with industrial development that developed high-performance tanks in its own country. There are many plastic model makers of high quality in this country.
