"GREAT GERMAN , not so great kit"
The German 8t half track is a beast in the WWII german army. Used in many roles , exceled in all of them. I would just hoped tamiya would have exceled too. But is not the case. This is a old tooling kit, and comes with the expected problems. Injection marks in visible places. A few flashes in hard to correct places. And some nasty fitting pieces will give a little headache during assembly. The plastic is some pieces seems to be a little too hard, and if caution is not used some pieces may break apart. The cabin and engine compartment arre hard to align and fit properly. The decal sheet as usual is minimal , but good quality. The vinyl tracks are os average quality. This kit after assembled begs for a metal workable track. All that said , the kit is a good buy, a half track, a AA gun , and several winter figures make this kit a eye catcher right out of box. A well executed winter camouflge will do wonders to viewers in any competition. And can be a pridefull addition to any collection.

"Good classic Tamiya"
I built this model decades ago and after building it again, it renewed my appreciation for the Tamiya brand. This can be a centerpiece of a winter diorama. The AA gun mechanics are good,the figures are a fair compromise between too much action and total relaxation. The gunner and loaders look to be waiting for the enemy aircraft--they are nearby, perhaps having already attacked once. The number of pieces is satisfying for the casual hobbyist, and the one way fit cuts down on errors. The one exception to thoughtful connection points is the ill-fitting hood, which just doesn't sit right. You can cut off the tabs which attach to the frame, which is what the directions want you to do, but this still leaves an unsatisfying fit. Was the hood from a salvage yard? You can add filler, or leave a gap, but after all the good engineering, the hood is a prankster to an otherwise very satisfying build.

"Nice kit for the price"
This is an old Tamiya kit that looks good when fully completed. The areas where I was disappointed was the quality of the figures, and the fit of the engine cover parts which I thought could have been better. Overall, I would recommend this kit simply for the value, you don't find many kits this nice at that price.

"Good quality kit with some flaws..."
The detail on this kit is nice, and the quad 20MM is very good. The figures are also good. But, since this kit was built by Tamiya to be motorized back in the 1970's the tracks are rubberized with no detail on the inside. Eduard makes a great PE set for this vehicle that includes thin shields for the quad. I also bought Modelkasten tracks for it, but if you're going to put this in a diorama and put enough mud/dirt on the tracks the kit tracks will be ok.
