Spotlight Review

"A Lee tank" (San Diego,CA)
This was a fun build. There was no men with this kit, so I add two British men from another kit. It was a lot bigger than the Stuart is. I do not know if this is accurate. It is as big as the Sherman. It is a fun build, regardless.

"needs re-tooling bad. and needs upgrades"
I have built this before with no problems. however, I bought one off of good. then bought one from here. no good. its too old and needs a re-tooling and upgrades. warped parts/brittle. upper hull bent not square/ did not fit properly to lower hull. if Tamiya would upgrade this I would buy again.

"Really liked building this kit"
My favorite part of this kit is that the various doors can be put in the opened or closed position and that all the weapons can be moved around! Frequently, companies will model hatches closed and this can be frustrated if you want to create a 'knocked out tank' diorama. This one has a nice crew door on the left side, which looks great 'swung open'. The Germans really blasted the heck out of these in the European Theater so it's totally appropriate to show on knocked out in a scene as I did. Nice details in the engine area in back too. Good kit and fun to build!

"Another Tamiya surprise"
papagabriel (Naples, FL)
I would normally rate Tamiya kits as excellent but the last two I've built have been below par. This one not as bad as the M5A1 I recently finished. Good thing is this didn't come from Hobbylinc but a local shop. It had a sticker saying vintage and it came with Tamiya kit TAM35013 (one I built for my grandson and I reviewed but no pix so here they are with this review). The kit went together well except that a lot of the holes for lights, equipment and some parts going on the top of the tank were too big. First photo shows what I mean. Surprisingly the decals went on without a problem. I have found with other older kits the decals are dried out and tear apart easily when applying them. I made copies with my printer but the background is yellowish and you have to trim them so tried using the old ones (cause I'm lazy) and they worked. Not a bad kit just not up to Tamiya standards. Oh and just like the figure kit by itself the guy with the flamethrower doesn't have a hose. When I move I'll have to find my parts box and give him one.
