35247 German Field Kitchen Scenery
Another in a steady line of older kits being
revamped and re-issued by Tamiya, comes the venerable old "Gulaschkanone"
from 1978. While previously issued in travelling mode with cooker and limber
being towed along by two horses and a driver figure, this latest incarnation
shows it in static mode literally "doing its thing".
Gone is the horse sprue, and in its place are two
newly sculpted, apron-wearing cooks and 2 landsers with mess tins lining up
for a meal. Also included are numerous accessories - some old some new such as potato
sacks, apples, cheese, bread, milk churns, buckets, and lamps etc.
Nothing has changed with the Feld Kitchen or
limber in this version, which isn't necessarily a bad thing as it was a great
kit for its day and holds up well.
In other words a classic kit with a new spin,
which should prove a hit with the dio crowd providing a wide range of
possibilities for some nice rear area scenes.
