Meng 1/35 scale VsKfz 617 Minenraumer

By Michael Scharf
Published: July 2, 2012

Meng's 1/35 scale plastic model of the enigmatic mine-clearing VsKfz 617 Minenräumer is molded in light gray plastic with minimal knockout marks, mold seams, and flash. The weld beads really stand out on the moldings, but many are damaged by sprue attachments. As heavy as the box is, it’s surprising how few parts there are. The weight comes from the track blocks; each has a metal core. A metal chain and brass wire are also provided.
