ICM 1/35 Laffly V15T with Hotchkiss MG (35572)

Today we are going to check ICM 1/35 Laffly V15T with Hotchkiss MG (35572). This is a new kit in popular scale which copies unusual French vehicle. Moreover, new version copies car with machine gun inside. We reviewed the initial release, but it would be interesting to see what has changed in the fresh one. There are 128+8 plastic parts which should assemble into a small car. Packaging is typical for this brand, so let's open it and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with another vehicle in the same scale.

First frame is dedicated to various parts. You will find one-piece chassis here as well as folded roof and suspension elements.

This sprue comes in two pieces and ICM placed here all seats and wheels. Molding quality looks fine in my opinion.

Laffly V15T features nicely detailed engine, so it would be shame to hide it inside. As you can see on the photo above, bonnet panels are molded as single-piece parts, so you will have to cut them somehow.

Car body panels come on the separate frame. Those parts are quite large, but installation should be easy. Moreover, note the windscreen with molded in wipers.

Hotchkiss MG comes on the separate frame. Main body is molded as single-piece part, so it should be easy to install it into the right place.

Clear frame is packed into separate plastic bag. Molding quality looks fine in my opinion.

Yes, this model features vinyl tires. You will have to use these parts or maybe buy resin aftermarket which would look better on the model.

Decals sheet is not that big, but printing quality looks fine.

There are two assembly manuals inside. I show all pages in the video-review, but note that MG installation will require some drilling.

New kit should be already available for purchase. It looks like a nice development from the previous "basic" release in the same scale. In my opinion small Laffly has great potential for some additional improvements if you are willing to invest a bit of time. Kit quality looks fine, and it might be interesting even for beginners, who are brave enough to work with detailed model.
