New Release: Revell 1:72 Panzerhaubitze 2000

Revell has recently released a new rebox of their 1:72 Panzerhaubitze 2000 which was originally released in 2001. This new rebox also includes a number of new decals which differ from the original, allowing for a number of more modern marking schemes. The kit features a total of 130 parts and is recommended for both beginner and advanced modelers.

Highly detailed instructions and guides for construction, painting, and applying decals are also included. The kit features decals for two marking schemes. One depicts the Panzerhaubitze 2000 in service with the German Panzerartillerielehrbattaillon 325 in addition to a marking scheme which depicts the vehicle in Ukrainian service. The German version is based around markings seen around 2011 while the Ukrainian version depicts markings from 2022-2023.

On Sale: Revell 1:72 Scale PT-109 Model Set

If you’re a scale naval modeler on a budget, I have the perfect kit for you. Today, I’d like to introduce you to Revell’s 1:72 scale PT-109 Model Set, a fantastic scale patrol boat that is currently 41% off its standard price.

Looking into the features of the kit itself, it can easily be seen that the kit is rather highly detailed for a 1:72 scale kit. A number of small armaments, such as a 37mm anti-tank gun, and clear plastic pieces are included in the kit and highly improve the realism of the final product.

Another great feature of the set is its inclusion of paints, brushes, and modeling cement. This is a great way to save money on expensive paints and will also leave you with some extra materials to use with other scale modeling projects.

Lastly, it should be noted that the model set also includes decals for two versions of the naval vessel. Both versions are depicted in U.S. service and include a Solomon Islands based scheme as well as a scheme based off of a PT-109 commanded by the famous John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

If you are interested in learning more about or purchasing Revell’s 1:72 scale PT-109 model set, I highly recommend that you visit Revell’s website where you can find this product on sale for around 22 euros, which is 41% off of the standard price.

Review: Revell 1/100-scale Snap-Tite Harrier GR7

During a recent trip to my local hobby shop, I came across Revell’s 1/100-scale Snap-Tite Harrier GR7 for around $8. Not wanting to pass up the opportunity for an affordable kit, I brought the Harrier home with me and found it to be a very easy and enjoyable kit to build.

Despite its low cost, there were no real issues I found with the kit. Like most Revell scale models, the Harrier was produced with high-quality materials and the comprehensive instruction manual was easy to follow and understand.

I appreciated that this kit was pre-painted and had many of the small insignias applied right out of the box. While I enjoy painting and adding details to my kits, weather can make painting tricky, especially in the winter.

I highly recommend this kit to any beginner to intermediate-scale modeler or wargaming enthusiast as it is an easy and affordable kit that can be assembled quickly that will still look good on the shelf or in a diorama.

I hope you found this review to be helpful and hope to see you again soon!

Review: Pegasus Hobbies 1/72-scale JS-2 Soviet Heavy Tank Kit

Pegasus Hobbies 1/72 Scale JS-2 Soviet Heavy Tank is one of my favorite kits that I've built during my scale modeling career. The kit comes with two vehicles, both of which have an acceptable amount of detail in addition to simple construction. I found that the kit was very easy to assemble and manages to retain great detail in 1/72-scale, considering the model’s minimal part count.

Our Pegasus Hobbies 1/72-scale JS-2 Soviet Heavy Tank Model Build Supply List:

The kit comes with two 1/72 scale DShK heavy machine guns in addition to other accessories, including a shovel and saw that add detail and personality to your miniature armored vehicle. The kit requires very little time to assemble and is a great weekend project for any scale modeler or wargaming player, no matter their experience level in the hobby.

Overall, the kit is very good for its price; however, I had some issues when assembling my model. I found that one of the track and wheel assemblies would not fit into the side of the hull correctly without modification, in addition to some small gaps where parts of the turret were glued together; however, these are all minor issues that can easily be fixed.

The Pegasus Hobbies 1/72 Scale JS-2 Soviet Heavy Tank is priced under $20.00 and is a kit that I would recommend to any beginning modeler looking to get their start in the hobby of scale modeling. I look forward to reviewing more of Pegasus Hobbies’ kits in the future and believe they are easy yet detailed builds that can be added to any modeler’s or wargamer’s collection for an affordable price.

The Pegasus Hobbies 1/72 Scale JS-2 Soviet Heavy Tank model kit can be found at the following retailers:
