"1/35 Tamiya M26 Pershing"
Christopher A. Wing (Fresno, CA)
The Tamiya Pershing 1/35 model kit was released in 2002 and is holding up well against it's Hobbyboss and Dragon model versions of this same tank. This is another Tamiya kit that is suitable for novice builders as it's paint scheme is monotone olive drab and the tracks are the vinyl single piece type. The barrel is not slide molded, however with careful assembly, painting and weathering, the seam line will disappear. There are several stowage parts such as extra tracks, ammo cases and C ration wooden crate boxes. The 50 cal. MG on the turret is detailed and looks good. A commander and a loader figure are provided in the kit. The periscope guards and light guards are fragile parts so be careful installing these parts. The modeler will be rewarded with a great looking kit if attention is paid to following the instructions carefully.

"The best model kit I have built so far."
blakeknirkqb
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."
drumdude48
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.

 
"Excellent kit of US's proto-MBT"

I love this kit. Assembled smoothly with lots of detail, especially the cast texture on the turret and glacis plate. Parts fit very nicely with only small gaps in the side hatch on turret and at the back of the hull near the sponson. Easily fixed with some CA glue and Plastruct on the turret gap. Tank crew is well detailed and have a sort of relaxed but somewhat alert character. I really enjoyed the moveable running gear though it can be a bit finicky so it does take some patience but it stays together and doesn't get in the way of painting and assembly.
