Discontinued

Hi Dazzer

I think you'll struggle to find this kit retail anywhere. It was long discontinued by Tristar who to be honest are not the easiest of available kits to buy anyway. Which is a shame because they are nice models.

Check out Terry Ashley's PMMS site for details. He seems to have comprehensively reviewed their range, but be aware that the recent upheavals regarding Tristar means most retailers are low on stock of all Tristars kits anyway.

I believe 35028 is the kit that replaces the early and late discontinued models

AFV Modeller are long time stockists, might have even been UK distributors at one time, I'm not sure. Alternatively just try any of the other UK internet retailers.

But be aware their prices shown exclude postage and VAT.

There is of course always ebay, which may be your best option for this OOP kit .

Happy hunting

Alan

Hi Alan,

Thank you for all that. Tried AFV, unfortunately they no longer have stock

I'll keep monitoring EBay, you never know

Thanks again

Hi

Is there any reason why the kit that replaced both the earlier 35003 and the 35008, the kit 35028 is not suitable? From what I see it has corrected some minor errors in the previous two kits and gives you a interior, not available within the original 35003.

I'm not to sure on detail of these variants but I think from reading Terry's review that is what you are getting with 35028, a kit that will build into either a late or early version, but with the added bonus of an interior, which on it's own sold previously for about £12.00.

If it was me I'd get the 35028 and forget about trying to track down the older 35003, and if AFV Modeller's web site is correct they have plenty of 35028 in stock.

Alan

Hi Alan,

I have an old LeadWarriors Munitionsslepper conversion that does not fit into the 028 (I have that one) so I'm looking for the 003 that I believe it does fit into.

Me thinks I may be on a fruitless search though

Dazzer,

The earlier Leadwarrior kits fit into the Italeri, Masterbox, and HiPM kits. With the release of the Tristar kits, Leadwarrior reworked them to fit the Tristar kits using less pieces.

I know since I bought the Pz I interior from their Munitionschlepper kit to use with their PzI A Modificado conversion for the Italeri kit (which, by the way, included the Zvezda release of Italeri's Pz I B).

Regards,
Saśl
