"Beautiful kit, highly recommended for all skill levels."

This particular kit is well done. I found there to be no fit issues. The smaller parts could be a bit fiddly. I would only recommend this kit to someone whose built several kits prior. The tracks can be a challenge, but with a little patience, they build up nicely, have great detail, take paint and weathering products with no issues. Highly recommended. This kit has a working suspension. I opted not to have that, and glued the suspension parts in place while the model sat on a flat even surface.

"Great Sherman"

One of the best Sherman tanks I’ve built so far I’m very pleased with the detail, Porta crisp, clean with no flash a lot of extra detail and accessories. Highly recommend this kit everybody.

 
"Nice"

This was my first Ryefield model that I built. I was very impressed with the kit. I followed the instructions except for one step. I installed the top hull with finders before I completed the rest of the top. Only because I was afraid I would knock off parts trying to get the top hull on the bottom. The top hull needed some muscle, but this worked.I then completed the upper hull. PRO'S: You get a 20 page color instruction book. The decals went on nice. Option for 3 different markings. Clear parts for lights and a large amount of PE parts. Detail and fit are excellent. Metal springs for the bogie trucks. They do move the wheels up and down. Jigs are included to build the tracks and bend some of the PE parts. The individual tracks work excellent. The track jig allows you to put together 6 tracks at a time. Once you do your first couple they go pretty fast. The kit gives you a lot of different options of parts to use. For example the Sherman spot light or the British style. A single piece muzzle. Great detail on weld marks and texture on the hull. CON'S: The instruction book does not call out color of different parts. No figures are included. So I left all the hatches closed. I would recommend studying the instruction book carefully and make a plan on construction. I recommend this kit for experienced builders only. Some very small PE parts but they help bring out more detail. I look forward to building another Ryefield kit.
