Good review, Andras. Find it amazing that you built this quite complex looking kit in two evenings. Maybe you get in from work early and burn the midnight oil!

I notice they mispelled DELINQUENT on the decals. Like other manufacturers, the choice of what gets rendered in metal is sometimes hard to fathom out.

You mention a couple of times that you built this for the chassis - can we know what you are planning to do with it?

Darn, my built-in spell checker did not work (Sometimes when I write something on paper with an actual pen, I kind of expect the autocorrect to kick in... too much digital life I guess.)


The build went fast, because it is not a difficult kit; even the PE went on quickly.

I have been wanting to build a 152mm T49 gun tank... the S-model Sheridan kit will donate a turret, and finally I have something to put it on. (It's a small project and I did not want to do it in 1/35, so the Armory Bulldog came as a blessing.)

The more modern turret certainly updates the overall look of the older tank. Kind of interesting to see that transition or evolution of design in that way. Congrats on finishing this project.
