Overall this is a good kit. It goes together well, but it does have some problems



Placing the front axle and suspension is a bit tricky. If you want to place the machine gun as indicated in the instructions the windshield plastic goes in from the wrong side. It’s supposed to lift out from the front but it’s installed from the rear.


The figures aren’t very good. If you use them, don’t put the three levers on the floor board in until after the figures are in place.

Tamiya paint was used to paint the figures. They too were weathered with Winsor Newton Oils.
