There is a bit of nostalgia in building this hull. It’s a massive block of plates. A model cannot be more stable. Despite the small size, a built engine was not dispensed with here. The rest of the structure of the hull is not very spectacular. The smallest tracks are used for the chains. They run moderately on my acrylic board, but once you grab some paper they run perfectly.

The engine gets a large cover that is tight but still easy to remove. The turret is built almost in one go. Sides and rear do not have to be created in separate construction steps. Finally, a long hose is attached to the right side of the hull and a minifigure is built.


Not everyone will be happy with this smaller scale. But you don’t have to do without nice details. In any case, there is no need to talk about stability with COBI. You can get it for free at a not-so-cheap price.
