"Well detailed little tank"
calaron (Salol, MN)
this is a well detailed little armored personnel carrier.. I will be using this for a 40K Imperial Guard Troop Transport.. should work very well for my WWII themed army.

"Great detail"
BlucherFamily (Overland Park, KS)
Typical of Tamiya, this kit packs a lot of detail into a very smooth build. I found no overflash and all the parts came of the sprues nicely. The fit of the parts was perfect, and left no visible seems after painting. The result is a picture perfect reproduction of this iconic infantry/armor support vehicle used by the British during World War II.

"Universal Carrier with a Punch"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
The Universal Carrier was among my first Tamiya kits back in the '70s when it was released and it is still a favorite of mine. I modified mine some what by adding on detailing parts and placing a 6lb Anti tank gun in tow through some home built ruins of mine in the early stages. Both kits are oldies but rank right up there with the best. I would highly recommend either kit and certainly paired up to anyone.

"Nice but the Tracks"
I use to consider this a go-to or a rainy day build kit. Ive built six of them in a variety of uses. It goes together great and can be built as a variety of vehicles. I actually have two almost done, being used as late war Soviet Lend-Lease carriers. My only concern, which is a relatively new one, rests with the tracks. The two under construction and a prior build all suffered from track breakage within days of being fitted. The issue is the tracks are tight...and the glueable tracks melt with even a minimal application of liquid cement. If you are using the side skirts this can be hidden under neath. I'd still recommend the kit, just a little caution on the tracks.
