Looking for Instuction Pages old Tamiya 1/35th
with the TO&E
ie Pak 40
BMW combination set , M3 Half track
I have many of those, as I save all my old instruction sheets, but unfortunately my scanner is down. Those things were great! A nice involved history of the kit subject and the organization tables for the subject in the primary usage unit, from platoon to company and sometimes all the up to battalion level. I just built the Zundap/BMW motorcycle set and the instruction sheet has the TO&E for the early war Panzer Division MC Company.
F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!
U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!
N is for NO SURVIVORS...
what is "TO&E"?
I have these i-sheets if you're still looking for them, BTW

TO&E stands for Table of Organization & Equipment. In the old Tamiya kit instructions it was a chart showing how the units equipped with that particular item were equipped. A lay out of lets say a Tiger Battalion- it would show how many of each type of vehicle, Tigers, Mk III Ns, Kfz 10s, etc, were used. usually down to the platoon level.
Oh yeah, I remember those. Thanks
The old Tamiya 1970s vintage 1/35 Military Miniatures Series instructions were probably some of the best ever produced. They usually included a history of the kit subject that was more inclusive of information than Wikipedia, a parts tree diagram breakdown that included a description of each part (i.e. cylinder head, sprocket wheel, etc.), the TO&E chart for that particular vehicle or weapon, and great instructions with words and photos for the actual build, along with helpful hints. While some of their translations in the instruction sheets could cause a smile or chuckle, the overall quality was excellent.
