  1. Amazon Customer

    The model is great. On the other hand, the model was not shipped in a box other than the one the kit comes in. One end of the box was crushed and there was some damage to the parts. I was able to repair it but whoever shipped it did a cheap job.

    In the process of making it. Lots of wheels, bit fiddly but the finished model will be worth it

  3. William Loman

    Awesome kit. Mine came with four british soldiers as well which was a nice surprise. Good fit and detail. Couldn’t be happier with it.

    This model kit fits together very poorly has few parts apart from individual track links and has lots of flashings and poor instructions. Would not recommend this to anybody

    Good kit. Some cab bits are tricky to get to shape. Superglue needed to fix them quick. But tracks as individual links were a pleasure to build, but fiddly to fit. But it’s a great kit and lots of detail to chip and panel line,wash

    It was a lot of fun to build ! I wish there were more WWI armor to build.

    I’m a big fan of Meng kits and have been waiting for this one to be released for quite some time. I did look at the Takom version but that has some build ‘challenges’ that I didn’t fancy. The Meng has the same level of detail but is a joy to build – besides the tracks it can be finished over a weekend. The two areas that you may have expected to be problematic have had some thought put into them to make it as easy as possible. The wheels are built so that instead of been sandwiched between the inner and outer plates are placed on axels that are part of the inner plate. This means that getting everything lined up is very simple. The next part is the hull itself. A large part of the lower hull is moulded as one piece and the ‘turret’ starts with a single piece that is then bent to shape. This gives a solid foundation for adding the rest of the plates. I still had a small amount of filing to do but it was all far easier to get everything square.

    The downsides? There is no PE and this really should have used to get inscale thickness for the attachment points for the canvas track covers. The stowage bins often seen in pictures are included. The individual tracks are rather time consuming to clean up with three attachment points. Finally, the tow cable is string and not metal.

    Overall highly rated especially if, like me, you prefer to concentrate on the painting stage and not the build stage.

    Very high quality model, as are all Meng kits and the treads are very easy to put together. Highly recommend this model!
