Building the model
Firstly you need a large space to work in as the sprues are huge. The kit comes together very well. It is worth dry fitting the hull top to the hull before adding any of the detailed parts as it needs to fit really well as it is so large it could flex. The suspension and running gear looks really impressive and of the era. The plastic tracks are nicely detailed, but I did treat myself to a set of Hobby Boss individual track links just because it gives a slightly better track sag. The five turrets are nicely detailed, especially the main one with it's short 75mm gun and wrap round radio antenna. Once all the components are in place the model looks seriously impressive and very true to photographs. I have no gripes about this model and it builds well, sure you need to take care removing small parts from the sprues but as long as you dry fit the major sub assemblies all will be well. It is really satisfying and great value for money. The only problem is displaying such a monster!

Once again excellent service from Wonderland models. The first impression is the size of the box, which is huge. The completed model is 27+ cms long. The kit is moulded in green plastic and there are a number of photographs of the completed, unpainted model on the back of the box. The level of detail is good, with a good crisp finish. There are a lot of bolts on the side skirts of this vehicle and they look particularly well made. Some of the details are very thin plastic and will need care in removing from the sprues. Perhaps some PE parts might be in order. The instructions are clear and missing the usual Zvezda typos. The sub assemblies are on the left and the major processes on the right. This is an interesting subject and a bit more history in the instructions would be nice. It obviously lends itself to an interesting early war setting with perhaps an early mark panzer III. All in all a very impressive kit at a realistic price.
