? Why did Tamiya not include side skirts on the newer Jagdpanzer L-70

The old kit has them and I need a set for the tank I’m doing, makes no sense.

Well…that’s Tamiya for you! :roll_eyes:
:smiley: :canada:

Let them know how you feel :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

You mean the one from 9 years ago?

There’s a good chance that the vehicles covered by the kit markings didn’t have them. They includes parts to do particular examples, not every possible combination, so some stuff isn’t there.

Probably because per information on the Tamiya website the new kit is depicted based on extensive research at the Saumur Armored Museum in France. The Saumur Pz IV/70(A) seems to be vehicle the kit depicts.

The kit has photo-etched mesh Schürzen.

I’d rather have that in the box than the lame thick chucky plastic skirts like in the prior 2014 release.

FWIW - the string tow cables & non slide milded MG’s are irritating in the new Tamiya kits as well.
