"Great Flakpanzer kit."
JLM in WV (WV)
This is a very good rendition of a Flakpanzer, the detail is great, and the fit of the parts is excellent and the crew figures are well detailed.

 
"Old copy of Tamiya kit"
iraqiwildman (Jefferson City, MO)
This kit is a direct copy of the old 1970s Tamiya kit. It even has the holes in the bottom for the motor. The fit was just OK, but it lacks fine details. The figures are good and offer a action poise of firing the guns with the commander directing them. The road wheels were out of round, so I had to chuck them into a motor tool and try to sand them round.

 
"Good & Bad"
snod
This was my first build of a Academy kit. I was not happy with a couple important items. PRO'S: Good detail except road wheel's. Parts fit good except the shield around the 20mm guns. Decals ok. CON'S: The instruction sheet was poor. Felt like I was looking at one from the 60's. Painting detail of parts was horrible. No paint colors recommended for the figures. The road wheels were round not flat. I didn't even bother to try and get them flat. I would not have any wheel left if I tried. Large gap between the top deck and the rear panel. I had to add scrape piece of plastic to fill the 1/8 gap. The shield around the 20 mm guns gave me a lot of trouble to fit together. I left out the 3 figures that went inside the shield do to the fact I could not get them to fit inside and complete fitting the shield together. The kit looks good except for the wheels. I would not recommend it for a beginner do to the difficulty of the gap and the shield.
