In 2015, Revell has surprised us with a number of new releases and  re-release of scale models, which showing once again their ability to do us enjoy with vehicles, tanks and motorized elements, stars of the battlefields of World War II World (Allied and Axis) between 1939-1945. In 2015 Revell has released the following eight scale models:

In box review by Britmodeller (Conclusion).- This kit is well regarded by the modelling community, which isn't surprising as it looks very promising on the sprue. The level of detail and the quality of moulding suggests that the end result should please even the most detail orientated modeller. The only drawback is the lack of zimmerit finish, which either limits you to building one of the prototypes (for which modification is required) or means you have to add your own (or turn a blind eye!) Nevertheless this is a top-quality kit which can be firmly Recommended.

In box review by Britmodeller (Conclusion).- Revells small scale military vehicle kits are usually very nice, and this is no exception. Engine aside, there is plenty of detail certainly enough to keep even the most demanding small scale modeller happy. The engineering is pretty good too, which should help to make this a straightforward yet rewarding project. Highly recommended.

In box review by Britmodeller (Conclusion).- Of all the small scale armour kits that Revell have produced over the years, I think this is be my contender for the best. Although the copy that I bought when this kit was first released remains unfinished, it is clear that it is a fine and well-detailed kit which builds up into a very nice representation of a Nashorn. Very highly recommended for all Panzerjager fans.
