It’s a good model in general with some simplified and missing details that require some attention. The radiator lacks details and is just a flat plate this is a problem as the radiator louvers are molded in the open position. The fan belt missing and the wiring harness for the sparkplugs. How much detail you want to go into is up to you or you could carefully cut the radiator louvers off and put them in the closed position and not worry about some of the missing detail in the engine compartment.
 
 
The lifting handles on the engine bonnet are molded into the doors themselves which is odd for a kit its size. The doors for the driver and passenger have most of the detail molded into them already once again simplifying details. The radio included to my knowledge doesn’t represent any radio used by the US Army at the time.  Those are the biggest problem area’s I can remember with the kit right now I know there’s a few other area’s that require attention.
 
 
If you are up for a little work and perhaps scratch building you can make a very nice model out of it.  My father built one when it first came out without any corrections and was happy with it however he found it was not as good as the 1/16 T-34’s he had already built from Trumpeter and wished it was much more detailed.
