    Although this tank kit is diminutive in stature, it’s VALUE is massive (Approximately $25.00 door-to-door). The exterior details are more or less “Tamiya level” AND the interior compartment detailing was far better than expected given the kit price point.

    I’ve completed countless WW-2 German armor kits, so I’ve made a concerted effort to build non-German kits over the past two years and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the change in focus.

    I airbrushed a dark grey primer coat, followed by a desert tan base color coat and then used hobby masking tape to mask off the desert tan and then applied a blue/grey split pattern scheme with a final olive green layer on the turret top. Unfortunately, I lost more of the blue tone than I intended after applying filters, pin washed, artist oils and streaking enamels. Although I really liked the end result, I nonetheless regret losing too much of the blue tone as this was such a unique scheme by the Brits.

    This kit is roughly 95% complete. I’ll add some Pigments to the tracks and some of the surface panels at a later date, but overall, this kit is an absolute HOME RUN.

    Update: 01.24.2022 – I decided to redo my little Honey and I’m happier with the results.

    Nice model with good detail.

    This is a re-box of the Academy kit. It allows you to build the US Stuart version or the British Honey version of the M3. It comes with both rubber band tracks as well as individual link tracks. The individual link tracks take some effort to assemble, but in my opinion are worth the effort. Most of the parts fit very well (Tamiya like), but some such as the pioneer tools and some of the exterior hull parts have to be “eye balled” into proper position. The kit includes some interior detail which is nice as the hatches can be modeled open. Overall very good value for the cost and an enjoyable build.

    Was looking forward to this product as I had heard good things about it. I am glad I was right s far all the old issues I had with older model kits I have have all been resolved. The model comes together nicely there were no gaps, the details are very clear and nice there was no flashing on the sprews, the instructor were clear and precise and I like how they now have Photos of some of the parts in the instructions to give you better accuracy.

    The only issues. I had really were very small one was the lack of and crew on this model but as the scale is the same as most other brands of kits that you can use them. And the other is many due the the box being damaged no fault to AirFix.

    If all future models come out the with the same quality I’m definitely going to get more from them.

    Bought during first lockdown and never got around to building so gave away to a friend who made a far better job than I could have done! He said it was an excellent kit.

    I use to build models when I was a kid. Now that I’m retired I thought that I would try it again. I guess I should have tried a less advanced one to start back up with. The instructions were a bit lacking.

    Almost Tamiya quality. Beautiful when finished. LOTS of extras to make your Honey your way!

  11. Mr. S. J. Tomkin

    High quality product. Parts fit together seamlessly.All kits should be of this quality

  12. Marathon Man

    Enjoyed building this a good deal. Highly recommend

    This is a remarkable kit of a beloved subject. The stuart played an important role for the Brits in NorAfrica a d this incredible kit from Airfix (by way of Academy/Minicraft) is a very, very good kit of this adorable piece of armor.

    Great details all around, and quality plastic.

    Beware though, rubber tracks (blergh), and individual track links are included for the super-detailer, but these can be a bit persnickety to put together.

    All in all a great addition to your Armor collection!
