Construction

We start building the Patriot system with the M983 truck, which serves as the tractor. This one gets a nice cockpit and a built engine. The drive train is connected via a differential. However, this doesn’t really make sense, as it otherwise has no function whatsoever. Nothing is driven via the linkage and there is no steering either. A Hemp of God would have been nice. The upper spare wheel is almost obvious. The construction goes quickly and is also very stable during the construction phase. The ropes are a nice gimmick, even if they are a bit fiddly. The only thing that’s really annoying are all the stickers, as Panlos usually prints its sets. There is no special reason for the stickers, as they usually concern tiles and only very rarely cover several stones.

The actual anti-aircraft system consists of the trailer and the 4 boxes for the missiles. Everything is pretty stable here too. The 4 rockets built can be fired via springs. The indicated gas pressure springs hold the rocket launcher in a stable position, but are very difficult to move. You should remove the battery if you want to adjust the angle and not destroy everything.

Conclusion:

For relatively little money you get a great, large set that is a lot of fun. The only thing that can be criticized here is the stickers, as Panlos has completely printed many other sets.
