"very nice older kit, good detail and easy to build"
rarem37
This kit is one of the oldest ones the Tamiya line. It assembles easily with no major problems. The detail is not as sharp as the newer kits, but it includes pretty good features for it's age. It is a good beginners kit that will look good next to the newer releases from other companies. The tracks are the rubber band type that most glue won't stick to. You can follow the instructions and melt the posts to join the tracks. I also put a couple of staples across the join. To install the track, leave the drive sprockets off until you are ready to install the track. Place the track over all of the wheels, fit the drive sprocket into the track and press the sprocket into place on it's axle. That way you don't have to stretch the track to get it around all of the wheels and drive sprocket.

"Tamiya price and quality..."
Nucleartestrabbit
This is a very easy build... Its actually probably the easiest one I’ve had yet and is very affordable. Being an older model it is not without out its flaws. It has the holes common with most of the older tamiya models which you can patch with putty unfortunately though unlike the other tamiya models though where you can ignore the holes on the bottom this one has some pretty big and obvious ones near the rear drive sprockets. I was also a little disappointed to find out the stowage racks lacked a bottom, I’m probably going to scratch build some before I paint it. I did find quite a few injection marks that were in places that they’d be visible but they aren’t in places that are super obvious... I’d also recommend keeping around reference material because some of the pictures aren’t very clear on the orientation for things like say the barrel evacuator. Some parts were a little warped and required clamping to get them to bond but that’s likely an individual thing with my kit and may or may not be an issue... oh if you are planning on building this hatch open I recommend insuring a good fit between the hatch and the turret before installing the commanders cupola. I ended up breaking the mounting peg off trying to get it to fit but I was building it hatch down anyway though so no big deal. All in all despite its shortcomings it’s still a great kit. It looks like it’s supposed too and has reasonably good detailing... at only $20 it is well worth the investment and is by far one of the easiest builds I’ve seen. The quality at this price point alone makes it worthwhile.

 
"Nice build, even if somewhat dated"
travis.getz
I built this model years ago with my cousin. He was new to the hobby and we both really enjoyed it. The model is simple enough for young modellers to avoid being bored, but more 'hardcore' hobbyists may find some of the lack of options and the rubber tracks a bit disappointing. Recommended for beginning to intermediate modellers who want to add to their tank collections. :)

 
"Old Kit"
alex295
The kits old and shows it. Detail is simplified but works. The turret is not good. It actually is shaped more like a M48 Patton turret All that said, it was perfect for what I bought it for. I built mine as the Panther from the movie A Bridge Too Far. It's an easy build. It's old and detail is to be expected. If you want a good Leo 1, there are much better kits. For the price, you can afford to kitbash it. The turret is the weakness of the kit.
