"Small Tank, Big Fun"
This kit has been around forever but don't let that turn you away. It's not super detailed or complex but it is a good quality build. The molds were quite clean considering the age and the parts fit really well. The figures are actually quite good also. It's a pretty easy build making this a great intro model or a good one for younger modelers. The downsides are the rubber band style tracks and the motor holes on the underside of the hull. However, those cons are of little concern when compared to the low price.

"Pleasure to build, excellent beginner model"
The quality, detail, and fit on this model is superb. All the parts fit together nicely. The chassis fits very snugly onto the deck and turret. The wheels/drive sprocket have the rubber padding inside, giving a very smooth rotation. This model is excellent for beginners, and experienced modelers wanting to experiment with painting. It is very easy and quick to build (took about an hour for me). The end result is still highly detailed, from the exhaust to the various stowed boxes. This is definitely one of the more pleasurable models to build.

Tamiya quality excellent as expected. The kit allows for 2 versions plus decals for Europe theater or Africa. This kit is simple which would be a great tank for beginners. If you are looking to add extra pieces to a Africa diorama this would be great. The extra 5 figures in tropic uniforms will help add real life to your diorama.

"Good Deal!"

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 :)
