Good, but not usual Tamiya
By illiniteach29 July 14, 2013
The Tamiya M5A1 Tank kit was, overall, a good kit. In fact, normally I would give it a 5 star because the fit was great, instructions were clear, and overall it looks good. However, I gave it only 4 stars because there was a lot of trimming required to get rid of molding and clean up edges, something that I've never experienced with Tamiya before. This extra work wasn't a problem, but like I said, not what I'm used to from Tamiya products.

A Bantam Weight Winner
By johncpo41 February 21, 2014
I recently purchased this 1/35th scale winner of the model equipped with the Cullens Hedgerow Cutter on the front. Fully aware that Tamiya really goes to great lengths to preserve history made my choice clear with this kit; place it in the hedgerows, and replace the M3 that was already shown there. After highly detailing and weathering the M5 I placed it into the battle, complete with crewmen seeking the Germans and ready to plow through the overgrowth. My diorama was immensely improved by this model. I did not use the version of the kit with the mortar crew.

Nice older kit with extra figures
By rarem37 September 20, 2015
This is a nice older kit. The level of detail is not up to today's standards, but it builds up nicely. The parts are big enough for young modelers to handle. this one also has the rubber band Tamiya tracks that glue does not like to stick to. I heated and flattened the posts in the tracks after the track ends were joined, as per instructions. Just in case, I put a staple across the join. To install the tracks, I left the side skirts and drive sprocket off until last. I threaded the track around the wheels, and then fit the drive sprocket inside the track. The drive sprocket was pressed into place. This keeps pressure off of the track join and makes it easy to slip the track in place. the skirts were added last. Why only 4 stars? it is an old mold with a bit of flash to trim off.

A good kit but not up to modern standards
By michaelg951 September 15, 2015
A good kit. Not a modern kit and a bit fiddly at times. A good kit for the price. A set of aftermarket tracks is recommended as the kit supplied ones are wrong. The end connectors do not connect each track links. Otherwise a nice little, quick kit that looks good in the end.
