"best M26 i have found so far"
wayne (Birmingham AL)
this is a fun kit built to typical Tamiya standards. (yes I'm a fan) they have re-engineered the suspension to articulate and attention needs to paid in this area. I messed up the easy 8, my problem not theirs. it builds up great and comes with a lot of extras.

"Well-molded, detailed kit with lots of accessories"
lonesomecrow22
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.

 
"Fun"

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.

 
"Great model, great detail, cool suspension"

I was a little intimidated at first by the suspension but once I started to put this together it really was quite simple and actually a remarkable example of engineering. I had a little trouble with one of the springs popping out when I moved the wheel up and down put I twisted it a tad and pushed it down and it was just fine afterwards. Make sure you test everything before you put on the top of the hull because you won't be able to fix them after that. Pay particular attention to placement of the decals on certain versions. You might want to wait to put some pieces like the rails for the spare track on the turret, AFTER you apply the decals. The loader figure is different but the commander figure is the same as in the M4A3 Sherman models. The extras include ammo boxes and K ration boxes. A couple fuel cans would have been nice but you can always order more stowage. Since I spray painted the model waited to apply the tracks and painted the skirts separately. The only thing I don't like is the lack of periscopes and the missing casting marks on the turret. There isn't even a periscope for the commanders hatch if you decide to keep it open. Tamiya came up short on that one. Overall, a very fast build and great detail. You don't see many Pershings around so this an excellent choice to add to your collection of U.S. Army World War II tanks.
