Review: Tamiya 1/48 Dornier Do335A Pfeil With Type 81 Kübelwagen Kit

The Tamiya 1/48 Dornier Do335A Pfeil With Type 81 Kübelwagen Kit is a fantastic offering from Tamiya that brings together two iconic World War II vehicles in one box. This kit not only provides the opportunity to build a highly detailed model of the Dornier Do335A Pfeil, the first twin-engine push-pull fighter developed by the German Luftwaffe but also includes the Type 81 Kübelwagen, a versatile German military vehicle. The inclusion of both kits in a single box adds tremendous value and enhances the overall modeling experience.

Let's start with the star of the show, the Dornier Do335A Pfeil. This aircraft was a technological marvel of its time and showcased the innovative design principles of the Dornier aircraft company. The kit captures the essence of the Pfeil perfectly, with its sleek and streamlined appearance. The parts are crisply molded and exhibit excellent detail, allowing modelers to create an accurate representation of this historic aircraft.

The dual engine setup of the Dornier Do335A Pfeil was a key feature that set it apart from other fighters of its era. The kit faithfully reproduces this unique design aspect, allowing modelers to showcase the detailed cockpit with an ejection seat. Three figures are included with the kit, one being a pilot that can be placed in the cockpit.

One of the notable aspects of the Tamiya kit is the ease of assembly. The parts fit together with precision, thanks to Tamiya's commitment to high-quality molding. The instructions are clear and concise, guiding modelers through the construction process without any major hurdles. Whether you are an experienced modeler or a beginner, the Tamiya kit provides a pleasant and enjoyable building experience.

Moving on to the second part of the kit, the Type 81 Kübelwagen, it adds an extra layer of versatility and historical context. The Kübelwagen was a widely used vehicle by the German military during World War II, known for its robustness and adaptability. Tamiya has paid great attention to detail in this aspect as well, ensuring that the Kübelwagen is an accurate representation of the original vehicle.

The inclusion of the Kübelwagen adds value to the kit, as it allows modelers to create dioramas or display the Pfeil in a realistic setting. The parts for the Kübelwagen are well-molded and fit together smoothly. The fine detailing on the exterior and interior of the vehicle, including the spare tire, tools, and seats, brings the model to life.

Overall, the Tamiya 1/48 Dornier Do335A Pfeil With Type 81 Kübelwagen Kit is a highly recommended kit for aviation and military modeling enthusiasts. The combination of the iconic Dornier Do335A Pfeil and the versatile Type 81 Kübelwagen in a single box offers exceptional value for money. The level of detail, ease of assembly, and historical accuracy make this kit a joy to build. Whether you are a fan of German aviation history, World War II modeling, or simply enjoy building high-quality model kits, this Tamiya offering is sure to exceed your expectations.
