"WWII Armor Main Stay"
I think anyone building armor in the WWII arena is bound to come across one of these. This is a fun and relatively simple build all together, however there were some areas that I found to be lacking. First the front fenders and side skirts seemed to be a bit ill fitting. This could of been due to the tooling or maybe just a bad mold? The interior could of been done a bit better, maybe it is just due to the fact that it is not a highly technical model, but my investigation into this vehicle during the build showed some very cool features that I feel could have been easily incorporated in the kit. Don't get me wrong, it was a great and fun build. I just had higher hopes I guess. Maybe I will try again but this time invest into some of the large quantity of aftermarket items out there.

"Pretty good"
If need a bunch of half tracks and don't wanna spend a ton of money, this is for you! The figures that come with this set are not worth building because they are just so old. You can use the spare parts from the figures and the parts of the figures to make custom figures. This kit is really fun to build and is pretty easy!

"Great Kit for a Great Price"
This was a very fun kit to build, and also a pretty good deal. A quality model plus 5 figures to go with it made this an easy buy. I was very pleased with how well all the parts went together. I barely had to do any filling with putty. Detail was also quite good, though a more expensive kit will obviously have better. The decals were very good like in most tamiya kits, and offers about 4 different units, africa Korps, plenty of numbers, and more. The only issue I had was that where you attach the wheel, there are really bad seams that make it tricky, so that will take a little more work. Even with that, it's a model to build and would definitely recommend it.

"So many possibilities."
Good straight forward build. I feel like a little bit more detail would be nice in some places such as interior and undercarriage. The decals also included two sets of numbers 0-9 so you could pretty much build any half track you could ever see. Also if you get a little creative with some dirt, foliage and a lighter to melt and bend the fenders, You can take this model to a whole new level.
