REVIEWS
-

" an excellent single point of reference on this unusual weapon of WW2.  With the modeller in mind, tucked into the pages of the book, are a set of good clear 1/35 scale plans.  Kits of the K5 have been made in 1/35 by both Trumpeter and Dragon, and even before those, a smaller 1/72 scale model from Hasegawa."
