What I see so far, from the hull and wheels assembly of this old kit:
- Soft plastic and details like with the older Italeri;
- Instructions full of errors, but easily correctable with some research (essential) and reference material;
- Relatively easy parts adjustment, without major problems.
A good surprise so far.
22. February 2017, 11:09
Fabian D.
I respectfully disagree. ;)
While the lower hull might be quite ok, upper hull and the interior is where the fun begins.
You would have to remove this and scratch the interior below:
[img1]
(You can copy the interor from the Bronco kit)
Correct some minor things on the outside...
[img2]
(The gun and it's shield are taken from their Marder III, hence there are some adjustments to be made.)
and finally you have to sand down the armour plating to fit with the mud guards.
But in the end, you're rewarded with a wonderful bathtub on tracks and the promise to never buy an Alan kit again. :P

Hi Fabian,
Thank you for your comments and suggestions,
If I was a rivet counter I would never buy another Tamiya, after I built their first Kübel or Schwimmwagens.
In this case, I will do some alterations as in the bronco kit, but for sure not sand down or change the armour plating to fit with the mud guards, in my kit it fits OK. The only part that I will add is the vertical ones as I can see in the reference photos.
So I also respectfully disagree. ;), I will buy every Alan Kits that offer unique (or almost) models for a Cheap bargain, and work my way with them OOB, adding scratch here and there.
I prefer to buy 2 or 3 different Alan kits for the price of 1 Bronco. I hope you can understand my drift...
Adding to that I've to give some recognition to the very first brand that put this kit on plastic.
Cheers ;)

22. February 2017, 14:22
Fabian D.
No worries, Rui.
I respect your approach, actually bought kits with a similar mindset. I've just gotten lazy over the years, so I don't really like guessing where things go, spend half of the time scratching stuff... And I'm no rivet counter myself, but things should at least look similar to the original.
And please, don't compare Alan kits with Tamiya. While some of their kits are a bit outdated, most of them are pretty damm well engineered and a pleasure to build. (Just a reminder, Tamiya kits from the 20 years ago look better than the Dragon kits from the same time frame.) None of the Alan kits (or the reboxes) I've build offered anything in that quality.
22. February 2017, 18:31
Rui S
No harm done Fabian,
I agree with you and I sure respect Tamiya engineered kits, the old and new (easy to build good for the beginner or professional, excellent instructions and fit, etc, etc,). but IMHO, in the mentioned examples, (and I could also had the Panzer II F, that I've also built) I can compare both brands.
I understand your reasons, but I still like to enhance my poor quality kits, for me it's part of the hobby and buying them a must for my wallet, so... no choice there.
As to "guessing where things go", nowadays with internet and hundreds of Gigabytes of information in my library, I also really like researching.
As to "things should at least look similar to the original", of course I partial agree, because over the years, I started to be more pragmatic.
I don't really mind if its not right, if we can't see it.
When I scratched a partial interior like in my Elephant, I really don't go over the top if no one can see it.
If it's on the outside that's another conversation...

They seem to be out of business, or at least have no official website and don't really sell stuff anymore. If you look at what others think about their kits Alan seem to be the better choice. Especially if you consider that you're also dealing with resin:
"Old school resin kit from about a decade ago. Became obsolete when the shake & bake Tamiya Marder III hit the shelves." and "Even at 1/3 of retail its not worth the effort. Less painful to just buy the Tamiya kit." ;(about the Marder III, Fine Scale from 2011)
"I've bought a few of their kits. They're a bit rough, so if you're new to resin, be wary. Definitely buildable though, just have some good scratchbuilding skills and tools handy." (2015 from reddit)
23. February 2017, 16:12

Hi Fabian,
Thank you for the heads up.
I was just wandering how did they designed the interiors on the Marder II.
I've been trying to get my hands on the Tamiya Marder III for a long time now, but it's always a bit to expensive for my wallet ;)
I've some resins in my stash but never built one.
Maybe my next project will be the 35(t).
https://www.scalemates.com/kits/653658-airmodel-am-1010-panzerkampfwagen-35-t
I think mine is missing some pieces so I think it's a nice one to start with.

Hehehe. Thanks mate, your welcome.
For now I'm into the bathtub, and found from the book Wydawnictwo Edipresse, Militaria n.º 209-Marder II, a plate with a completely different interior from the Bronco one...???

I am not sure how far I "completed" this kit, I think I had all the painting done and just didn't apply decals, because I recently found some of them in a plastic bag together with others. This kit was late 90's (1997-8?) and I was getting fed up with german armour and with the atitude of fellow modelers I knew at the time and of the people on model stores... anyway I think I lost this one to my ex-wife, and know it's probably lost forever, one never knows what appears in old boxes in the attic...

what do you think of this old and classic kit in terms of parts fit and easiness of build ?
5. June 2016, 04:54
EnsignExpendabl
Good painting, but you can still see the edges of decals. Make sure to do a gloss coat, decals, gloss coat, matte coat, then the borders will not be visible.
6. June 2016, 14:38
Marco
Nice job, but the red parts seem a bit too round to me. And as EnsignExpendabl said, you should try to remove the edges of the decals

Very easy to build and fit was typical tamiya bliss

Fingers crossed on this..last one in stock for $36 CDN. The new version is even worse than I thought - not only does the new kit delete most of the PE, the turned barrel and the clear parts, it's a mix and match of three kits that results in gaps, incorrect pieces and even pieces that don't fit and/or leave holes to be filled! The instructions are full of errors due to Dragon copying and pasting three different kits' instructions - calling out for pieces that don't exist or that are already molded on! Also the new hull is apparently different dimensions. I would avoid the new incarnation of this kit . If you are considering a Marder II look for this one.

The Bronco Kit, CB35097,is better.
As you have pointed out ,the Dragon Kit from 2006 is an example of how the Mix'nMatch approach can go wrong .Unlike the various Dragon Marder lll Ausf. M Kits, when a more evolutionary approach resulted in improvements in accuracy and build quality,the two Marder ll Kits, which have followed the 2006 release, do not really improve upon matters at all.

Thanks Patrick. Woodgrain is just a bit burnt umber oil color on a yellow base.

I´ve never been a fan of preshading, as it never worked as I wanted it to... This tank is one of my earlier trys with color modulation with just using "lights". I´ve started with a standard panzer grey and added only lighter tones (by mixing a bit light grey in the original color) on top surfaces and in the middle of larger surfaces. Might be one or two additional tones in there. I don´t use "shades" anymore as washes and filters tend to darken the entire paintjob already. What I´ve learend afterwards is, it looks even better if you´re getting lighter the more you´re moving upwards:
running gear: "dark", a few lights
hull: more lights on big panels and brightest tone on top surfaces
trurret: lighter as hull, birghtest lights on top surfaces
I hope it gets clear, if not: I´ve used this technique on my T-34: T-34/85, Yugoslavia, around 1995 | Album by nng (1:35) (Painting starts at Pic 48 )
3. September 2014, 15:58
Patrik Spett
Thanks for the advice. I have never used color modulation but when I build a one-color vehicle I will definetly use different tones.
