S-model M22 inbox review

Quick M22 Locust preview

Model: M22 Locust
Manufactory: S-model
Scale: 1/72
Material: styrene and PE
Kit number: PS720022
Parts: 1 sprue with 22(21)+ 2 frets with 16 PE for both kits
2 kits in the box

guns both Little John and the normal 37mm

                Real               1/72               kit
Scale: length 3,94m      54,7mm        54,3mm
           width  2,16m      30mm           30mm
           height   1.85m      25,7mm        24,7mm
so overall pretty close but a bit too small

Good parts:
  • only late M22 in plastic at the moment (there is a resin early M22 see below)
  • easy build 
  • 2 in a box
  • 2 guns, 37mm and 37mm with Little John options in 1 sprue but only the 37mm on the other sprue the Little John was snipped off, others had no Little John adapters at all so beware if you want it buy it for that option
  • mine came with double the PE frets
 Bad parts:
  • details are a bit soft at places
  • some pieces got stress marks, looks like some parts got bend but all parts are complete with no damage I guess it was a demolding or boxing problems as the box was pristine
  • strength bars between the wheels are flat PE pieces but has too be a round bar
  • the 1 piece running gear is a bit basic, like all S-Model kits, but still better then the Planet kit with the solid idler and space between the track teeth is filled up, this will be a pain to fix but can be done with a Dremel tool and small burr

German late war cupola, I made this as a replacement for the Revell Tiger II but it would fit any late war German tank with this style, Tiger II, E-50 or E-75.

Made for GeBo

Same cupola but with the front visor replaced with a under armor IR scope FG1253
parts not glued so look a bit wonky

Thumb dagger

Little thumb dagger made from a left over piece, it's based on the OSS thumb dagger with a few changes to make it both legal and of a bit more use other than killing Nazi's. A dimple for the thumb and and cuts for grip, made those with a Dremel cutting disk not the best tool for the job but it works but it does look less pretty.

Mechanical coffin

Meet the mechanical coffin, yes it was its real name, designed by Martel better known for the Martel one man tank later redesigned to a 2 man version. the nose and side panel are folding plates with a firing slit in the front, of course this is not to replace tanks but purely to give infantry more speed and some protection. The driver is Mr Martel himself.

Still need to add a few rivets but most of the build is done.

Greetings and thanks for watching

More Valdemar last 4

Finally finished all 8 and here are the last 4, I love doing medieval figures but the downside is every time I look at them I find more to do. But in the end it gets all down.
