Three 1/35 scale items and one in 1/72 are now with UK importer Bachmann Europe.
Military, maritime and aviation genres are all catered for with Takom’s new releases and there should be something for everyone here. They are as follows:
PKTAK02167 US WWII M29 Weasel Light Tracked Vehicle 1/35 £33.99 (top)
There has not been a new-tool styrene Weasel in 1/35 scale since the vintage Monogram kit (the boat-hulled M29C) was released in 1957! Therefore, Takom’s kit, which is a squarer, land-based M29, is eagerly anticipated. This kit offers link-and-length tracks, a seated driver figure and four different sets of markings.
PKTAK02173 Russian KamAZ Typhoon K w/ RP-377VM1 & Arbalet-DM RCWS module 1/35 £54.99
For those interested in modern Russian military machinery, Takom’s new Typhoon-K with remotely controlled weapons system could be the centrepiece of many a topical diorama or individual display piece. It has a detailed interior, steerable wheel, photo-etched (PE) metal details and hatches can be posed open or closed. Markings for one vehicle are supplied.
PKTAK02607 JGSDF AH-64D Apache Longbow Attack Helicopter 1/35 £89.99
Apache fans have had a bonanza with Takom’s 1/35 examples, but there’s another now available, the Japanese AH-64D license-built by Fuji Heavy Industries. Photo-etched metal parts are included, plus markings for three helicopters.
PKTAK05020 HMS Hood Mk 1 15"/42 Gun Turret B 1/72 £51.99
This is the first time Takom’s naval gun turret family has offered a British subject, here emulating HMS Hood’s Turret B. This famously ill-fated vessel’s Turret B was located on the forecastle deck. A display base is included.
All these items are now available from UK importer Bachmann Europe.
