"Good Deal!"
teddy13bu6 (Brooklyn, NY)
This is definitely a great deal for armature model builders. It it a simple kit and easy to use. It was a little tough when doing some of the main body work as it may require you to do some extra detail. I converted mine into a 1939 version. Didn't like the whole Afrika Corps style. Figures are highly detailed and very accurate. I think I will purchase this again in the near future and make another :)

"Decent model, but instructions are lacking"
byhtomit (Washington State, USA)
It's been several decades since I put together a model, but I distinctly remember models having better instructions, including what paints would be needed to complete the model. The exterior packaging on this model is absent that type of information, so you are left wondering what else would be needed even though there is a statement that reads paint and glue not included. So, you are left needing to open the box and examine the inside contents to determine what else is needed. The default color of the model is beige, which is fine for desert type scenario upon which this model is set. The tracks are made of rubber and there are basic instructions for putting together the model. There are some guidelines for painting the model men that come with the tank, but not for the tank itself. You get a slight indication from the decal paper as to a paint scheme for the tank, but no reference to colors or any kind of color schemes. Fortunately, I play a certain video games that has this tank and the various paint schemes for desert camo, so I have a reference from which to work. All in all, the model is fine, but the instructions need a lot of work. Considering this was the first model I purchased in a while, I expected more, but for the price I can make it work. However, I doubt I would ever buy models made by this manufacturer unless there was no other choice.

"Super fun little kit"
How great is Tamiya's engineering!? this kit went together without a hitch. Small part count makes it a quick build and you get to the painting in a snap. would have appreciated a bit more detail and wish that some of the details (a fer of the tools) were separate sprue items rather than being molded to the upper hull, but this is mold is almost as old as me. Still it is a dream to build. Go get this kit!

"Great Little Panzer II"
Being my first tank build in a over a decade, this was a great way to get back into building armor. Tamiya quality shows throughout, and although it is an older kit, the flash was non existent and parts fit perfectly. Decals were numerous and build options were available too, allowing you to build more that one variant of the tank. You can't go wrong for such a cheap price and I highly recommend this tank for those just getting into the hobby or for someone more experienced who just wants to complete a quick build without complications of PE or a high parts count. Again, highly recommended!
