"Pretty good German tank model!"
This Panther seemed to be a pretty good model. As the first one I had ever done it seemed straight forward although there were a few problems. 1. The tracks were a massive pain to get together! 2. The gun barrel was a little bit uneven and didn't fit right. 3.The cables you are meant to put on the side just snapped for me, after boiling them I expected them to bend as the directions say, they did not and just snapped. The final issue was the directions were a little unclear. The Idler wheel has pins that are meant to be cut off but pictures did not show it cut off as well as the hatches that were meant to be open but weren't... overall it was a pretty good beginner model and worth the price!

"Good for beginners"
Very good kit, decent detail for the price, easy to assemble.* * -Tracks can be difficult to put together if you don't really know to assemble them (Good way, at least I found, is to heat up some pliers and crush the connectors together) -Needed to Dremel out some of the roadwheels so they would fit, but wasn't too much of a problem. All in all I'd recommend this kit for people with very basic knowledge.

"Awesome German Tank"

This kit turned out very cool. The tank itself is larger than I would have guessed based on the size of the box. The quality of the kit is very good. My only complaint is with the one piece treads. This kit's treads only have one row of pins connecting the two ends, and it was difficult to get the connection satisfactory. Most of the Tamiya kits I have done before have at least two rows of pins - unfortunately, this one did not. The treads aside, the model is awesome. As usual, the kit comes with tools for the tank (shovel, sledge hammer, crow bar, jack, cables, etc.) A commander (full figure) and a driver (torso only) come with the kit, but the detail of the figures seems a bit lacking. Overall, even with the few slight drawbacks, the kit is impressive and well worth the price.

"Excellent Model"
build master
Got this model on Thursday and my grandson and I had it finished by Sunday. This is an excellent model! Very well laid out and detailed. Parts are well molded and fits together like hand and glove. This would be a good starter model for anyone just starting out in model building; challenging, but not overly complicated. The only con I could find is you have to cut the pins off the Idler Wheel (C3)and there is ten on each Idler Wheel, for a total of twenty. For an experienced adult this is no problem, however, I don't think I would let a child try to perform this task; just a little bit to dangerous.


  • NOTE: Please keep all small parts and sharp edges away from children ages 3 and under.
  • Care should be taken when using various tools and modeling knife.
