Tommy T Completed this with my 8yr old son in conjunction with another 8yr old and his grandfather as part of a YouTube Community "Buddy Build". Neither of these kits were the first built by our kids, but it was definitely the most difficult for ALL of us. The fit issues were horrendous and Superglue and Tamiya Extra Thin had to be used on many pieces, notably the tank halves and the trailer wheel assembly. The cab itself was OK, the chrome plated parts were too thickly plated and many holes had to be made larger of extra sanding of the parts to remove the chome. The tire/wheels all around fit horribly, glue was needed there, and the poor design of the chrome grill assembly was laughable. We agreed that whomever designed this kit was not a model builder. At best the kit should be a Snap-Tite Plus Glue and age raised from 8 yrs old to a minimum of 10, probably 12. Note, the kit is a cool kit, and thankfully our kids had more patience than we did as adults because they still had fun, but it was frustrating all around for everyone. A great kit idea made disasterous by extremely poor design.
