A great kit for beginners and experts alike
Having just finished the kit I would say that overall it is very good for the price. It is a nice small tank with not too many pieces, however the detail on all the pieces is excellent. The mouldings are nice and crisp with almost no flash. The kit comes with a full interior for the tank as well which is also very nicely detailed. You have the option to leave the tank hatches open which is good if you would like to see the detailed interior once it has been built. The colour scheme of the tank is something very different from a lot of other models so it makes a great addition to a display. For the tracks you have the option to build each link individually out of plastic or use the normal rubber band type. It is nice that you have the option depending on your preferences. There are a few things that could be improved with the kit. Firstly, there are no figures included which is a shame as it would have been nice to have included for example a tank commander figure to help show the scale of the tank. Secondly there is no engine detail so anyone looking for this would need to be purchase the engine separately. The last downside are the transfers. They are nicely detailed however they are a bit on the thick side making it hard for them to be softened in the weathering phase. I also found them to be a little bigger than the box showed them to be. Summary: + Not too many parts + Highly detailed and nicely moulded + Detailed interior + Choice of tracks - No figures included - No engine detail - Decals are a bit thick and a little too large To buy or not to buy? I would definitely say this is one to buy for beginners and experts and is a good variation of a lesser known British tank.
