Meng 1/35 scale A39 Tortoise

By John Plzak
Published: January 7, 2013

When you open the box to the Meng 1/35 scale Tortoise A39 plastic model kit, you realize how big this beast is. Amazingly, through the magic of slide molding, the fighting compartment is molded as one piece with excellent cast texture on all sides. Only the rear plates are separate moldings. The kit features individual-link tracks molded in an earthen brown plastic. The rest of the parts are molded in olive green. A small instruction booklet features clear line-drawing assembly directions and a full-color painting guide. There are no decals or figures included.
