There is no misalignment on the parts.
Only the commander's hatch can be opened or closed, all other hatches
Tools are molded on.
All inner wheels are constructed as a single part (inline). The outer
wheels are separate.

Casting quality is good; all parts are sharp and detailed for a “easy-build
Hull width: 51 mm.
Hull length: 80 mm (not counting the fenders)
with Dragon's Tiger I and Revell's Tiger I, the width will be around
1 mm narrower but length is the same.
Compared to the major manufacturers (Dragon and Revell), this kit
is a simplified version of the Tiger I.
The Revell and Dragon Tiger I versions are definitely superior out
of the box. However, the kit does have acceptable details. The kit
can be used in dioramas quite well. Novice modellers may be helped
by the single piece vinyl tracks, and the easy clean-up/build.
The price of the kit is relative low.
Recommended (with reservations) for many modellers.
