MaCo #7220 1/72 Pz.II Ausf L Luchs

Recommended Posts

Looks good

But tge gun seems to be molded to the upper part of the turret

How are the details there?

Greetings levin

Looks reasonable to me, but the gun itself will stand replacing.....MaCo will be releasing a version including a turned metal barrel (& possibly some other extras) in due course. A twin pack kit is also on the way and having seen the decal sheet it's a very worthwhile proposition. :coolio:

Thanks

I am gonna look out for it ... though it possible land on my "intended to buy but never did list"(hopefully not :winkgrin:)

still:

the Luchs is one of my most favourite tanks of ww2

Almost certainly.....At some point. :coolio:

You do have some other options these days, the Flyhawk kit is more detailed and might be a bit fiddly to assemble, Armory have also released one but it looks a bit 'short run'.....MaCo's certainly looks the most buildable, I've already bought three and may pick up another twin-pack. I've got two of the Flyhawk kits and will probably buy one from Armoury too. :mental:

As you can probably guess the Luchs is my favourite German tank of WWII too. :yahoo:

Please do.....A thread with some sprue shots would be very welcome. :coolio:

I'll get the Flyhawk kit out and take some pictures of that one too.

PS - MaCo have another later Luchs variant coming out toward the end of this year:

Flyhawk also have another Luchs kit coming IIRC.....Suddenly we're spoilt for choice! :yahoo:

Man the luchs always had something luft46 (or whatever it is for amored vehicles) IMHO and that second one has even more of it

It's all quite genuine WWII stuff.....Just some spaced armour plus track and idler-wheel sections for added protection and a couple of jerry cans on the turret. :nerd:

The detailing looks a bit softer than the MaCo kit and positively 'short-run' compared to the Flyhawk parts. :coolio:

Hello ,

having received the kit I would tend to agree with the above comments, similar to Ace kits a little flash to deal with but nothing to write home about. At least it can be built as early or late version.
