Andras, nice review, and decent build of a kit that seems a bit of an oddity. A lot of quality PE for a 1/72 kit, and a big decal sheet, both of which are good, but then poorly fitting parts, a disappointment in a new injection moulded kit.
Then there's the fact that the turret sort of looks like an upside down saucepan...

Well, to be honest the whole design is kind of goofy; I don't think there was any reality of actually building it. If you can get over the fit issues, it's not a bad kit, though. The PE definitely helps a lot. The weathering will be refined in January; will post some updates once I get back.

No reflection on the builder but this model looks very toy-like. And its a paper panzer.
