    Good product package and delivery very good

    For what you pay for, it’s worth the money. If you want to take your time building and painting the diorama, you easily have upwards of ten hours’ worth here.

    You are also given a generous amount of accessories to add to the diorama, such as oil barrels, miscellaneous crates, pick axes, shovels, bicycles…all sorts. You can therefore be quite creative with the layout. I also found that I had quite a lot of paint and glue left over at the end, which is handy. The brushes are also of a reasonable quality.

    The downside is how dated the models are – the parts of the house are labelled “Airfix 1975”! This explains the poor fittings of some of the components. The tanks are quite precarious to put together, and noticeable gaps in the joins are unavoidable. The soldiers are also made of a plastic that has quite a glossy finish, meaning that once the paint has dried, it simply flakes off.

    In summary, good value for money considering how much you get, but the quality of the models themselves is dubious.

    Very disappointed with this item. It was purchased as a gift for my nephew’s birthday earlier this month and he has let me know that on opening the package he has found that the paints have dried up. This therefore means that the product is useless.
    I am looking for a replacement to be sent so that he can enjoy this gift.

    Lots in the box

    This set has everything you need to display a WWII diorama. I don’t understand the complaints. The fitting might not be perfect in some parts but there’s nothing that a knife and sand paper can’t fix. Some people are just too lazy to even try. You get a lot for your money: two tanks (Tiger and Sherman), a detailed battle damaged command center, plenty of accessories, paint, brushes, two armies (British and German) and a nice base to put it all together. What else can you ask for?

    I’ve been doing airfix kits since 1977 and my son has started to do them now this kit is a perfect way to get in to the understanding of how to make your models and see how to set out the drama with all that’s in the box very good kit to start of from and all comes nice together,

    (Disclosure i got this at Hobby Lobby not amazon. Just wanted to leave a review in case some wants to get this and that i’m also new to model kits)

    I do recommend this or any kits similar for someone or anyone who wants to find a good place to start but not dump to much money into the hobby. The model kit is decent comes with everything you need (except tools. Just need scissors or fine tip pliers) all the paint, two brushes, and two tubes of poly cement. Only complaints i have is that it feels cheap. Had a few parts break easily or need to be worked on to fit.

    I bought this from hobby lobby not Amazon so I didn’t have to worry about shipping.

    It was bad. Really bad. The first thing I decided to do was the Sherman immediately I encountered the main problem the wheels just didn’t fit. The only way it would work is if I broke the piece and cemented the wheel on which probably wouldn’t even work. I don’t know where the good reviews came from because the soldiers weren’t even that good falling off their hinges and made of a very weak rubber. the diorama base was completely out of scale just don’t buy this the only thing good about it Is the decent for the price detail on the vehicles but it doesn’t matter if you can’t assemble them. If this review does change your mind I recommend brands in similar scale like Pegasus, revell, and zveda.
