No one has built this,what a shame.

Well I opened the box on  Saturday afternoon and here's where we've gotten as of today.







I've never built a kit with so many mitered corners that didn't have a few gaps but these are all water tight not even a hint of a gap anywhere.

Not a lot of choice Jon,one set of German and three sets from First Armour of the same unit in December of 1942.

Thanks guys

Hi Tony the tool in the canvas bag is a machine gun tripod stand and the make is a Revell.

Thanks buddy.

Update Time




The reviews are correct you're going to be one link short on each side even if you take the sag out behind the sprockets plus the idlers are not adjustable. Never fear there's eight links on another sprue that's not mentioned on the instruction,four for spare links and four you can use as fill in's.

Have a good one my friends
