Spotlight Review

"Well made!"
This is the first time I have built a model tank. I was very impressed when I saw the detail of the pieces. During the build, I encountered no problems whatsoever since the pieces fit together well. The cool thing about this set is that it came with optional versions (Army and Marine Corp) build wise and with the decals. I recently finished building it recently and was happy with the results. Overall, this was a nice, easy build that is pretty well made for the price.

"Very nice M1A1."
jdunwoody (Erie, Co.)
Overall, a nice kit for the M1A1 for your money. You get two marking choices, and there are a few minor differences between the US Army and USMC model. The model has nice detail, but lacks any texture on the upper hull and turret. You can spend more for another kit, like a Dragon or Tamiya, but the overall value of this kit is something you can't pass on.

"A very good model."
turfdude1996 (Waynesville, NC)
I really liked building this model. I feel that the parts are very well done as far as detail. I do find it a bit odd that there were so many unused parts. The only issue I had were the decals. None of the decals would adhere correctly and fell off the next day. It wasn't possible to find a customer service number for Academy to get a replacement. I ended up buying a set of decals aftermarket. Because the model is well done I will try Academy again but if the decals are bad again it will be my last.

"Great build - minor company mishaps!"
This model is very well detailed, and putting it together to look realistic takes time, but it pays off. Many little parts and finishing one step takes awhile, but you chip away at it slowly if you want it to look good. The model rivals Tamiya's M1a2 abrams tank, and the steps and parts are very similar. I would've given this model an excellent in the ways it assembled and the detail, however the mesh screening for the back of the tank was somewhat disproportioned when I got the kit, and no clear plate glass was in the model kit. I luckily had the Tamiya M1A2 glass plating made of clear plastic in abundance, and took what I needed from that. Later I found one important piece missing. Actually bought another one. Would've attempted to get my money back from the walk in store I bought it from, or Academy, but I bought it long ago and pitched the receipt. The second kit I bought seemed to be completely in tact, and I probably will use that kit to make a camo abrams later on and conceal the missing piece that I took for this desert tank build. Over all since I bought the second kit and everything seemed to be in tact I still give the model itself and the way it built a good rating, and yes I'd still recommend this kit despite what happened. Sometimes companies just pack things bad on occasion, I just happened to be that 1% that got unlucky. If the second kit I bought had other pieces missing this kit would have a 2 star rating because that would demonstrate the company is consistent in leaving parts out on every kit. But it doesn't seem that way. But yes! definitely worth the time to put it together!
