Darren Baker takes a look at the Grant Mk 1 with Interior from MiniArt in 1/35th scale and digs into the details.

Not a kit I see myself building but an enjoyable read.

Thanks for the review Darren; this makes me want to sell-off my older Academy kit and pick up one of these instead. Oh well.

Nice review Darren. Not enough of a fan of interiors to replace the Takom kit presently in my stash.

Good review, and this kit is not for the faint of heart. How they did the tracks is interesting, I'm curious now to see a build review to see how those match up against Bronco and Masterclub types.

Check how they behave when shaped around the idler and the sprocket.

Good review, Squire.

Sometimes a kit comes along that is so good in its own right that I determine to purchase and build it, despite no inherent interest in the vehicle. This could be one of those kits, since the tank was a staple of the Western Desert campaign, and therefore extremely important to the Allied victory there.

I believe these images cover all of your questions om the tracks

Never doubted for an instant that the track would pose a problem. Nice surface detail too!
