"Not a bad model"
angusjwhittaker
My overall experience with this kit was a good one; there were no glaring flaws in the model; the pieces fit together okay with a bit of added filler, the kit didn't claim to be anything it wasn't. However, I did not realize when I bought it that you have to model the zimmerit coating on yourself. Woe is me. For those of you who don't know, zimmerit was a coating applied to German tanks and other vehicles beginning in 1943 and ending in 1944. The purpose of the coating was to stop magnetic mines from making contact with the metal surface of the tank, thus rendering the mines useless. The other purpose of zimmerit (of the scale model variety) is to make life a living nightmare for modellers. This kit is not supplied with zimmerit, as I have said, and Hasegawa leaves vague instructions for its application. Dissatisfied with this meager instruction, i researched the problem and came up with one good technique that I would recommend strongly to anyone facing a similar dilemma. The following technique is inexpensive, easy, and frustration-free. Apply a thin layer of regular modelling glue (the same stuff you would use to glue the model together) to the surface area to be treated. Wait about half an hour for the glue to dry but not harden. Then take the smallest flat screwdriver you can find and press the tip horizontally into the glue, creating a small indentation. Repeat this in columns running all along the surface area. Besides the question of zimmerit, my only other complaint was the decals, which were difficult to work with. One of them even disintegrated and I had to paint one on.
