Spotlight Review

"The best model kit I have built so far."
After reading the book, Spearhead, I decided to buy this kit and a Panther to recreate the Battle of Cologne. I have build a Sherman model and was very happy with the size and detail. One of the coolest and most fun aspects of this model is the moving suspension. Building it was complex but not difficult and gives it a dynamic look to the model. I have built a B-25, Sherman, Panther, flak 88, and a jeep models and the Pershing is by far the best model I have built

"older but excellent !!! great kit from tamiya."
this was an interesting kit. this was brought out in late 1945 to combat the king tiger. however because it was similar to the king tiger our troops often made the mistake of mis-identification, and shot at the wrong tanks. this was also used in korea where it stood up to the Russian made tanks very well. the kit overall was good. no fit issues, very little flashing, all parts fit perfect. I would recommend getting this one for your collection. however, I did add the tarp and tent and butt packs. well worth the money and time. also the crew mwmbers were very easy to paint and glue.

After reading the book (The Sherman Tank Scandal of WWII) I went out and got a Pershing from my favorite manufacture (Tamiya). This kit showed me what they talked about in the book. So lets get to it. The kit, instructions and decals where all up to Tamiya standards. The kit included two figures and extra's to put on the hall. (ammo cans & K-rations). Decals included for 4 tanks from WWII and the Korean War. Decals also for the ammo cans & K-ration box's. PRO'S: The kit fit together with no problems. Great detail on the parts. Instructions where great. This kit also has movable suspension. Which if you wanted to put this in a diorama would make it look so much more real. I chose to have the suspension movable which was a mistake. They move to much for static display. Live and learn. No need to get a metal barrel cause the two piece went together perfect with no bends in it. CON'S: I wish it would have came with clear parts for the cupola and head lights. Got spoiled when I built their Easy 8 & Abrams. I did add wire to the upper hall like in the pictures in Korea to hold the ammo cans, plus I added a jerry can and canvas rolls to the upper hall. Extra parts I had. This kit was fun to build and I hope you enjoy it also.

"Well-molded, detailed kit with lots of accessories"
This kit has options for versions that include late WWII or Korean War. I was very pleased with the amount of accessory content. There are rations crates, ammunition boxes, and equipment packs. Decals are detailed down to the level of the labeling of the .50 cal. ammunition boxes. Many models have crew members that are from the same mold as other kits, so they get pretty boring. The crew figures for the M-26 Pershing model are refreshingly unique. I liked how the hatches are capable of swinging closed or open. One of the most pleasing features is that the chassis and wheel assembly is mobile. Each wheel moves independently and the suspension is operable so that it hugs the uneven terrain of a diorama base. There are two bolts included in the kit with which to attach the vehicle to a diorama plaque. Tightening these bolts will ensure that the independent suspension will mold correctly to the uneven terrain provided by a plaster base. The assembly instructions are not complicated so they are easy to follow, making the build a pleasurable experience. I would absolutely buy this one again.
