Great review. I like the format and the history part is great. This is definitely one of the features that makes Armorama great and a leader in the field. Keep up the great work.

this kit goes together quite well. the m1 is a boring tank to build without mine rollers/plow or tusk kit. imho

Great video, Jim! The history section and close-up photos really help.

The figures look good. Gosh, darn it, when will Tamiya release another modern figure box set of NEW figures that are NOT reissues of other manufacturers?

Jim, great overall review and presentation. I think your expansion into use of video on this site is creating a new paradigm for reviews. I imagine you have figured this out already. Your inclusion of the brief historical section was a brilliant idea. Great job!
