Its reliable design has allowed the Ferret to serve for over 60 years, all the way up to the current day.

Airfix’s 1:35 Ferret Scout Car Mk.2 has been well anticipated by many armour enthusiasts and is sure to please any scale modeler.

New Release: Airfix 1:35 Scale Stug. IV Kit

Recently, Airfix released an all new, 1:35 rendition of the Sd.Kfz. 167, also known as the Stug. IV. Airfix’s new model kit portrays the early production variant of the vehicle which comes with a roof mounted machine gun and a frame for add-on side armour.

Looking into some of the features of the kit, it can be seen that along with many other Airfix kits, the Stug. IV is constructed from durable and high quality plastics. All pieces are molded rather well and will allow for a very straightforward building process.

Another great addition to the kit is the variety of waterslide decals included with the kit. Said decals will allow for a detailed finish to your kit, giving it the appearance of authentic WWII German armour.

If you are interested in learning more about or purchasing Airfix’s brand new 1:35 scale Stug. IV, I recommend that you visit Airfix’s website, where you can currently find this product retailing for around 45.99 pounds.
