The Panzerfaust ("armor fist" or "tank fist") was a cheap, single shot, recoilless German anti-tank weapon of World War II. It consisted of a small, disposable preloaded launch tube firing a high explosive anti-tank warhead, and was operated by a single soldier. The Panzerfaust was in service from 1942 until the end of the war.

Plus Model from Czechoslovakia continues to add to its list of quality aftermarket and modeling supply products; this time with a package of EasyLine Panzerfaust 60 weapons in 1/35th scale.

The package contains five tubes molded in light grey resin, and a small decal sheet with red markings that say Achtung! Feuerstrahl! ("Attention! Fire Jet!") for each. The parts are protected in easily removable resin jackets to prevent damage in shipping. Once clipped, sanded, painted, and weathered, they look right at home in any WWII diorama or on a German AFV.

I finished these by applying a primer coat of Gunze Mr. Surfacer 1200, followed by a coat of Tamiya Dark Yellow lightened by a little Tamiya Deck Tan, thinned 50/50 with Gunze Mr. Color Leveling Thinner. After applying the decals, I sprayed them with Vallejo Flat Varnish cut 50/50 with their own Airbrush Thinner.

I recommend this Plusmodel product for any modeler who wants to add a little realism to his work with quality after-market products.

I would like to thank Plusmodel for providing this product for review, and IPMS USA for giving me the opportunity to build it.
