It has been years since I last assembled an armored vehicle, but the full interior line of armor from Takom is simply irresistible to me. I started with the one I like most, the Sd. Kfz. 171 Panther A mid-late. The kit comes in a surprisingly big box, which is full to the top with sprue and some PE for the engine vents grills. Zimmerit, offers full interior, and I mean full, every tiny detail is there. Tracks are provided in plastic, either as segments or individual tracks, includes a jig to assemble the tracks and then put them on the vehicle, need to try that one. Some ejection marks here and there, most surely they will end up hidden in an invisible place, but I got rid of them anyway. Takom provides plastic sheets with the Zimmerit molded on them, that attach to the outer side of the hull. I guess a good way of using the same base parts for either with or without Zimmerit. Gearbox is a beauty, lots of detail, matches all references that I have, all parts fit perfectly, no issues at all. And after trying to stop assembling this beauty several times, I could not resist looking at all the detail that is added in every step, I stopped only when I reached the moment where painting starts, that will be another day. Fully satisfied! Marco
