Some time ago Attack
started to bring kits to the market that were a far cry from their
earlier releases. Not yet up to the standards of the top players,
but very decent kits in their own right.
Patrick Mondria has done me a huge
favor by previously previewing the Special
Edition of the Panzerkampfwagen version (kit 72SE06). This is
because all kits contain mostly all parts to build either variant,
and as I agree with his comments there is basically not much to add.
As Attack has taken the habit of releasing
its newer kits in a "basic" and special edition version,
this means that this kit is basically the same as kit 72871, but with
those extra resin bits to fill out the interior. These are meant for
the first aid station and driving compartment and the engine. Some
hatches that are molded shut have to be opened up and replaced by
their resin counterparts. The only hatches that can be opened without
surgery are the lateral hull hatches.
It seems like a simple, well-engineered and well-detailed kit, which earns it a place at the top of my stash.
