When this tank arrived the turret and gun were one piece with a protective sleeve of metal and tape over the barrel. The Tracks are metal and required some cleaning near the suspension and running wheels, but was not that bad. All of the hatches fit perfectly, and only needed little cleaning of mold lines. The resin cast of the body was almost flawless with a slight "lip" of resin in the front which was sanded off easily with an emery board. All and all a solid kit. The commander miniature is a great touch.
