The Italeri (released by Tamiya with Tamiya figures) L6/40 light tank is a tiny little kit yet it goes for HUGE $$$$$$. I just saw it on the Sprue Brothers site ON Sale for $72.00.This simply amazes me. What is so special about this little kit? I want one but I’ll never have one unless the price goes way down.
You get a complimentary jar of RAGU with every kit purchased.
Real Italians don’t use Ragu from a jar
And it’s a bad fitting kit!
The Tamiya kit would have to come with Fugu, not Ragu…
Demand? It’s hard to find currently.
Well that explains it.
They’re using the old Jedi mind trick “this is the kit you’ve been looking for…mortgage your house to buy it”. Well Jedi it ain’t gonna work. Thanks for all the replies.
I looked all over Ebay and Amazon and couldn’t find one for sale.
Tamiya USA states it is a discontinued line:
Italeri one for sale in Australia. It works out at about $48 USD:
48.00 is still expensive but much better than $85.00 at Tamiya America.
I know I live in a town called Roseto.
