QuanGuan is known to more or less copy one or the other model from COBI. On the outside that may be the case, but on the inside there’s a lot more to build.
|Building Time ca.:||3 Hours 30 Minutes|
This set was provided to me by MISINI.
The hull of the TOG II is built in 2 stages. First, a narrow chassis is created, which will later accommodate the rollers. Then comes the guide for the tracks, which is placed as a whole on the substructure. This is followed by further construction and a little interior design. This could have been a bit more generous. It’s not entirely clear to me why the strange engine made of molded parts is used here and not built from building blocks.
The two large side skirts are built separately and attached to the tub with a few studs. Due to the extremely high clamping force of QuanGuan, such constructions also hold up very well. The tower is comparatively small, quite unspectacular and therefore quickly built.
QuanGuan’s quality is not the best. However, the very tight components ensure very good stability. So far the models have been optical copies of COBI with more details. With this model, however, COBI has the edge in both quality and detail.
