Academy 1/35 scale K9 Self-propelled Howitzer

With the long barrel, Academy’s K9 Thunder dominates the 1/35 scale battlefield. The real vehicle can land three rounds on a target at the same time.

The K9 Thunder, developed by Samsung Techwin, is South Korea’s self-propelled 155mm gun system.

Academy’s tan plastic parts feature crisp surface detail, including a fairly nice representation of non-skid texture on many of the upper surfaces. Poly caps between the dual road wheels allow them to turn, easing installation of the vinyl tracks.
