For a long time now I have loved the look of this range of kits and have wanted to build one, so I jumped at the opportunity to build this kit. It is an excellent kit in the Hasegawa Machinen Krieger series. The kit is very easy to build as long as you watch the instruction details carefully.
In the Box
- 11 x red sprues
- 1 beige sprue
- 1 clear sprue
- 1 dark grey vinyl sprue of polycaps
- 1 vinyl/rubber sprue
- 1 decal sheet
- 1 painting guide / collectors card
- 1 instruction booklet
- 1 small correction sheet for the instructions
All the sprues are extremely well molded with no flash and great detail. The decals allow you to finish the Mk 44 in many different ways. The painting guide shows 4 more, and 2 more on the back of the box.
Assembly begins with the feet and legs in steps 1 thru step 11. These are moveable due to the use of the vinyl polycaps in each joint. Construction of the legs and feet was very simple with no issues, and the parts fit nicely.
