Toldi I & IIA in 1/72
Toldi I (A20) &
kit (kit 7243-4)
Mark Miniature, Hungary
A single plastic bag holding all the
parts, within a cardboard box. On the box is a good color painting
showing locations of markings and the paint colors.
All resin kit.
About 50 parts including
upper and lower hulls, turret, individual roadwheels,
two long runs of resin tracks and individual links to go around the
sprocket and idler wheels.
Good quality. There are pour stubs on
the hulls parts and turret to cut off. The track sections have
bubble-balls on the outerface to remove and almost no track teeth
visible. Hand tools and other fittings are separate which I like.
The instructions are 6-part line
drawings showing locations of the wheels, tracks and turret parts.
markings are included. Hungarian 1/76-1/72 scale decal markings can be
attained by Aleran Decals (# AX-1), Toff Productions (#721112 and #721113)
and Attack Models AR06.
This Toldi II model is a an
upgunned version of the Toldi I tank. The Toldi I light tank
was a Hungarian licenced-produced version of the Swedish
Landswerk60 tank. At a little over ten tons the 20-mm gun
armed Toldi 1Iwas similar in use and function to the German Pz
II. The Toldi II was upgunned with a 40-mm cannon.
