"Old School Tamiya"
rockykeele (Tucson, AZ)
This is an older kit from Tamiya (stamped 1973 on the lower hull), but still very fun to assemble and paint. Part count is fairly low, but you get working front wheels and and suspension, 5 full figures (again, older figures), rubber band style tracks, and decent part fit. There is some interior detail including the drive compartment with driver and passenger seats, gear shifts, instrument panel, brake and accelerator pedals, etc. plus the rear troop benches and opening rear doors. I had to clamp the upper and lower hull parts to get a good fit, and even then I still had to use a small amount of putty to fill in some open seams. I chose the Afrika Corps version, but you can also choose an early war German grey version. The decals were a bit on the thick side but went down fine. There were several sink marks that I filled in with putty and many ejector pin marks that needed attention, but this is pretty typical for a kit this old. I had a lot of fun with this kit, and think it turned out very nice. While there are newer kits with better detail and more parts, you can't beat the low price of this Tamiya classic.

"New Fun"
Though I would build it cause it was something different and I enjoyed it. Tamiya quality was great as expected. But it opened my eyes to other kits. Pros- kit went together great. The doors on the back can be open or closed. Cons- none. The only thing I can think of that the kit was missing is rubber tires.

"Why didn't I build this one sooner?"
I've looked at this one in the Tamiya catalog since Star Wars was in the theaters for the FIRST time! Yes, 1976. I got back in the hobby and this was so cheap that I had to get it and have some fun! Best bang for your buck with all the figures. Note, scribe extra detail into these figures. Bring out the detail before you paint and they will look great! The Hanomag is an ok kit. The fit of the parts is not the best. It's 70's era ok? Running gear road wheels is fiddly. But the front tires are steerable, so that's a plus. The interior is pretty bad. I'm sure there should be seat backs that are missing. The included MG's are horrible by any standards. The tracks are memory lane get our your candle and x-acto knife and melt the pins type.But if you super glue the tracks to the road wheels to give them some sag, they look alright. Value level = must buy! Fit and finish = Vintage, in my day, this was a great kit and we had to walk to school uphill both ways and we liked it! Fun level = no pressure Nostalgia level = awesome

"Great starting kit at a great price"
This is a good starter kit. I opened the box to find well detailed parts with very little flash. Our youngest son who is 11 yrs wanted to get started into military models. We purchased this kit and was very pleased with how he was able to build this kit with no help from Dad. Would highly recommend as an entry kit into the world of military modeling.
