I was dumb enough to actually buy one of the previous line. Yk, a Ferdinand.

Couple of piece were actually crooked and its uncompletable! No idea why WG works together with a shitty manufacturer as Failareri! (2 of kind maybe?)

 

Guess its the same stunt Blizzard pulled when working with Megablocks!

 

Piece of advice: dont buy kits from Italeri.....

They have 3x XP... not much else...

 

 

On these models 1/56? that is a very weird scale, why not 1/48?

One of the models is not available on their own webshop.

Is this a deal for real? I can find scale models that are cheaper and better than Italeri's line. And even if they are a bit more pricey because of the whole partnership, I would pay the extra money IF and only IF the side bonuses offered in game were better. Paying 20-40% more on a scale model for 3 days of premium and a T2 premium tank that's only for Xbox? Where are the real offers? Add 20-30% more price to a scale model but give me a Tier 5-6 premium tank (or the bought tank as a premium version) in game and I will surely buy more than one pack. Hell, I probably won't be the only one buying the same deal...

Because a reputable one like Revell is too expensive for them :)

I have pretty much built all of the World of Tanks Italeri series kit. They are ok, if you check my youtube channel you will see all the video tutorials for each tank (despite me being a noob modeler :P) Being scaled in 1:35 means they are easier and more fun to build (with less than 60 pieces) :) 

I'd say why not ?

I know all of you think Italeri doesn't do good tank kits, but it's not true, they really improved themselves. 

That's my humble opinion so let me know what you think

Agree with that comment 100%.

It's a long time since I built any plastic model kits, but the accepted scales are 1:32, 1:48, 1:72 (mostly for aircraft), and 1:76 - visually compatible with HO/OO gauge railway buildings. This 1:56 scale doesn't match up with anything at all! What were they thinking?

 

A particular favourite brand of mine in my teens was the Hasegawa 1:72 range. They came up that little bit larger that the Airfix 1:76 and were more expensive, but the quality of the plastic mouldings was in a different class altogether.

 

Or you could go 1:16 if you want a radio controlled tank and you've got £500-£600 to spare.

The 1:56 scale is very famous and used by Warlord Games. There is a game that involves WW2 tank 1:56 model kits (the rule book of this game is called "bolt action" )  ;). Also the scale is very similar to the one called "28 mm" used by Games Workshop" and his miniatures.

Yes Italeri are not famous for their tank kits. Tamiya Dragon etc beat them in every way but they have been getting better.

 

I have built the WOT Ferdinand and Type 59 without problems and when you consider the extras you got with them they are not that badly priced.

 

These new ones are interesting and I might get one just to check out what 1:56 is like but I am mostly a 1:35 builder.

 

I do wish they stuck with 1:35 and continued to include rare premiums.

 

You can see my Type 59 here if you are interested in how it turned out.

 

I have the Italeri Fury to build and that contains some new tooling so it should serve as a good indicator on how much progress they have made with their tanks.

Guys Tamiya 1:32 range. 

Let me see japanese engineering, or italian hmmmm (Italian looks good but unreliable).  Japanese looks a bit plain but very very reliable.

Do you have to buy them all at once to get the bonus PZ V or how does it work?
