I am astonished that I was able to complete this. Wow. I do not recommend this for mellow people with low patience.

Nicely done for such a tiny little bigger.

1/72 is definitely a trial in patience lol.

This was particularly painful. The plastic was incredibly fragile and some parts broke in spite of my best efforts. In the end, I'm pleased more with the fact that I was able to finish it than I am with the end result!

DanR, Congratulations on completing that. That's a LOT of detail to pack into a 1/72 model. I think it turned out very nice. Barrett

I think those RPM kits are a little rough to start with. Great job on her and kudos for staying with her!

Thanks! The photos reveal lots of little painting errors but they are barely visible on the actual model, so I'm going to leave it as is. I just got Meng's 1/35 scale kit of the same tank - I'm expecting that to be much easier!

Great work! Tackled a few 1/35 RPM kits and they were a pain I can’t imagine building a 1/72 kit by them.
