The kit was delivered promptly, and was so impressive, I started the build the next day. The quality of the plastic and surface finish, one coat of the base colour was required, and all went well. The pictures give the impression that the real thing was a "bit bigger than a Jagdpanther" - don't be fooled - the real thing was a monster in comparison, especially the gun (170mm). So is the kit/model! The fit of the parts was impeccable, except for fitting the barrel within the mantlet, onto the "hogs nose" - I'm still not sure whether there was something wrong with my interpretation of the instructions (which were otherwise not needed), or whether there was something wrong with the kit engineering. Either way, easily resolved with a bit of drilling and honing. An excellent kit - impressive in size (therefore you get a lot of plastic for your money). I want another one soon - apparently the original design had a 75mm gun co-axial with the main armament - but (surprise, surprise) there wasn't much room for any crew in the fighting compartment. A truly excellent kit, in every respect - relatively easy to build, well detailed - and needs at least one crewman (not supplied) to show off the true size of the machine... a good job they didn't reach the front!
