I picked this model up at a local hobby store. This is the first model kit I have put together, I enjoyed it but as a begginer, I had some problems with the model and there is some gaps in the front hull and back. But that is a bad on my part. Excellent instructions, though I would recommend tweezers for the tank handles when the crew gets out. And also superglue is extremely helpful for some of the parts. I really liked the bottle brush plastic cement, and I thought to the detail was pretty good. The downside of this model kit is that it came with no figures, but it is a world of tanks model kit, which explains it, also, the other problem is if you don't play world of tanks, your wasting money on invite codes ECT. To sum things up I'd say it is an awesome model and is a must have for any Russian tank collector.
