The kit went together alright, lining up the hull top to its bottom was slightly tricky (I might have had to trim something to get it to fit ).
the roadwheels were an enjoyable assembly with this kit, I was able to to paint the rubber rims with considerable ease, and the result was nice. The flat black paint really makes them looks like rubber.
The kit also includes a commander figure, who has not progressed very far and I might repaint him.
Overall, it is a simple kit, I still need to finish adding detail pieces, but what is holding the project up is the tracks. The tracks are hard plastic with lengths for the top and bottom runs, as well as where the tracks bend around the drive sprocket and idler. The idler/drive sprocket bits are not molded in a bended position and the instructions want the builder to make knife cuts in the sections then bend them. Yeah right.
So once I get new tracks the project should be quickly finished. This and the Stug III may be my last tank models for awhile, as I have become more interested in aircraft, and since they don't have tracks and wheels, they are perhaps simpler to build.-Andrew
