With the Panzer II Ausf. L LUCHS, QuanGuan is currently the only one on the market. It looks good, but can the quality also convince?
|Building Time ca.:||2 Hours|
The small model consists of only 503 components, which are divided into 3 construction sections with a total of 63 construction steps. The last step, however, is just an overview of the entire content. For a better overview, old construction steps are grayed out. There is no parts list.
Today we won’t start with the hull, but first build a tree. Only then do we put larger plates onto which, like plate modifieds, stick for the rollers. Then the front and rear are built directly in separate construction steps. The engine is unmistakably the same shape as the larger QuanGuan tank models. However, it is much smaller and made entirely of bricks.
The next steps are all about building the hull. Both bricks and plates are used here. Beautiful details such as printed boxes and chains are also used here. Finally, the hull is smoothed with tiles.
Next up are the chains and these were a real torture. Many tracks were poorly cast so that they had no hold. It wasn’t until I replaced it with COBI that everything went smoothly. The turret was again built quite easily and quickly. A small base with a reversal of the construction direction and a few add-on parts followed by the gun were all.
In terms of quality, this model cannot keep up with COBI. Still, QuanGuan took the form quite well and the stability is more than sufficient. Only the chains were a problem. Too many tracks were damaged and there were no replacements. But you have to accept that with models from China.
