"Great kit"
BlucherFamily (Overland Park, KS)
First off let me say I love Academy kit's. So far every one I have built has been of the highest quality and of exceptional detail. I often think of them as Tamiya (another great model producer) on steroids. This kit is no exception and I truly wish that every manufacturer would go to the extra effort that Academy has in this kit. All the parts come off the sprues cleanly and fit together nicely. An example of this nice fit is the 3 part hull, the back and top pieces fit like a glove land in a logical fashion that leave no evidence of any a seams. If you build this kit yourself you will love that feature. The detail on this kit is absolutely amazing with enough attention paid to the interior of the tank that it does not need replacing with after market parts. The only thing missing is an engine, and the forward transmission assembly which are not likely to be seen where they are located anyway. The one thing that is a little difficult (fiddly) to assemble are the individual like tracks, this is because they mimic (as best they can given the scale) the assembly of the real tracks. I like the attention to detail here as if you have ever change links in a real tank's tracks then you know that is fiddly and awkward to do also. All in all this is a superb kit that you will enjoy building and when have finished it, then you will love the results of your efforts.

"Great"

I have zero complaints, fun to built highly detailed inside and out just like every Academy model is. Soviet and Allied versions.

 
"Academy M3A1 Stuart"
BSK (Nashville, TN)
This was my first Academy model kit. I've only constructed Tamiya models in the past. I give kudos to Academy for including all of the interior components for the tank, even when most won't show from the outside. I felt that Academy parts come off the sprue more easily and cleanly than Tamiya. This kit also includes many parts that can be used to create different production models of the tank, although I wish the instructions had detailed these options. My only complaint would be that this build required many small parts that had to be attached flat surface to flat surface, unlike Tamiya kits that almost always have a peg-and-hole attachment system. Over all, I would recommend this kit for its attention to detail, opportunity to add optional items, and parts that all fit without modification.
