"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.

"Great Model"
This is an amazing kit. I had almost no problems with the construction, and the figures are pretty good. It includes a good, detailed interior and markings for two different fronts: Russian and North African. I would recommend it to beginners, but advanced modelers can easily create an impressive halftrack.

"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.

"OK kit very good price"
This is an old kit and does show it's age in a lot of ways. If you are looking for a relatively easy project, this kit is ideal. You don't find many kits this good for this price. I didn't find any parts that did not fit well. Where you have to take extra care is the rear doors and fitting the shafts for the road wheels. Even though they all look pretty much the same, the inner wheel shafts are different from the outer wheel shafts. Study the instructions carefully to get them in the right positions. The figures included are just OK. My biggest beef is that the faces for each soldier look identical ( quintuplets ), but the poses are good.

  • Use caution when using modeling tools.
  • Recommended paints with this item are for adult modelers only.
