"Not a bad build..."
jays.columbus (Syracuse, NY)
This was one of my first tank builds and i really enjoyed it. Very easy for beginners. This build lacks fine detail and the rubber band tracks had alot of molding marks and one of them was actually ripped. This is why i added the mud along the road wheels. All in all it's not a bad kit for the price. I have found that in this hobby the phrase you get what you pay for rings especially true!

"Simple kit"
BlucherFamily (Overland Park, KS)
This kit is identical to the monogram kit of the same tank. Very simple with large pieces that for the most part fit together. The one difficulty is the lower hull assembly (2 Sides and the back), which was very frustrating just to get the parts to fit right. In the end I went with the imperfect fit, and used putty snd sand paper to make it look right. The parts had moderate flash and most required cleanup before assembly. I didn't worry to much about this as I got the kit for a very good price. All in all if you are willing to put in the effort as I was you will wind up with a rather nice result with not a lot of tme invested.

"simple kit, excellent for young builders or beginners"
This is a simple kit with large pieces and no photo etch parts. it is a good kit for the young modeler or someone just starting to build military kits. The current molding of this kit is showing it's age. There is flash on the parts trees. The tracks are rubber band type that must be joined together. Most glues won't work. I staple them and hide the staples under a road wheel.

"OK Kit"
For the price, it is a good kit. It is well detailed, and looks impressive. There are a few things I do not like, however. First of all, the accessories are molded onto the hull, so it made it a little more difficult to paint them. Also, the back panel will hang out without a bit of work on that. The tracks are one piece vinyl tracks, with ok detail. It does come with some figures, but they are molded in two pieces: The base and the figure. They have very poor detail, in my opinion, and due to the two piece, the plastic on some parts is melted together. This looks odd, like on one of the guns molded in front of the figure that is melted to his chest. If you do choose to buy this kit, you get a great representation of the Patton, but in my opinion, the Tamiya one is better. Also, I would scrap the figures if I were you. All in all, I would recommend it to all skill levels.


Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
