I can't say enough good about this kit. Not only
are the actual suspension parts really nice, but AFV Club has had the foresight
to place a large number of really useful items on the sprues as part of this set.
Things like the differential housing cover and the rear hull plate didn't need
to be here, but having them makes it easy to upgrade the old Tamiya or new Academy
kit. Likewise the hull tie-down hooks, the extra periscopes and rotating mounts,
the smoke dischargers, antenna mounts (US and Brit), gas cap covers, grousers
and even more! This is a great way to package accessory sets.
anyone think I have forsaken my curmudgeonly ways, there are a couple of nits
to pick, The first is that there are a couple of small sink marks in the periscopes
and the spare track blocks. Nothing that a little filler and a quick swipe of
the sandpaper won't fix. Also, admittedly, the stamped wheels only have detail
on one side, but a little silicone rubber and some resin will have that fixed
in a trice.
of like the beauty spot. A small imperfection to accentuate the beauty of the
rest of the kit.
