The basic structure of QuanGuan’s tank models is very similar. Unfortunately, the usual motor made of molded parts is used again on this Matilda. After we have built the bottom part of the hull, a large part of the top layer including tiles is built separately and then placed on top of the bottom part. The cover of the engine will be decorated with many linked bars, which looks very nice. Unfortunately, the barrels at the rear are anything but stable and fall off at the slightest touch. The tracks are the usual copy of COBI. However, in poorer quality. They run quite well, but also get stuck every now and then.
Before we turn to the turret, the side skirts have to be built. These are a bit wobbly when setting up, but in the end they are quite stable. The turret has a fairly simple structure. However, it is not always easy to plug in the separately built elements. Since QuanGuan usually uses a 1×1 Plate Modified to reverse the direction of construction, these do not always sit evenly. The different spacing of the studs makes it difficult to press on attachments if they are not really stable. In addition, there is the moderate quality of QuanGuan.
Once everything is in the right place, the tank looks very good. The moderate quality is quickly forgotten and the motor made of molded parts no longer has any influence on the optics because you can no longer see it. You get a pretty good model for a low price.
