Review: Hobby Boxx T-34/85 Tank w/interior

This is a 1/48th scale tank kit from Hobby Boss. It has a complete
interior, including the engine, crew compartment and turret interioir.
Yep, it is all there. I have completed the hull interior for the most
part. It is a challenge.
Issues: the instructions lack clarity of placement I would recommend a
good pile of pictures or a very good reference book... swomeone can
recommend one, I am sure.
It is tight. In the interest of accuracy I think it is a bit too
tight in some ways. The firewall barely fir into the hull and the
rear wall was really tight as well. Watch it as you put the fuiel
tanks into the rear.
Overall I really like the kit, especially the size. I will report as
it all comes together.
Any other comments?

So, comments about that kit should work for the smaller kit.

Bandai never hit that level of detail in their old 1/48 scale tanks.

According to this, it's not exactly a shrunken copy:

some parts are simplified.
