    What a brilliant little model!

    I too planned to use it for Stalingrad but the one I saw was in Leningrad. I’m sure they were used throughout the Soviet Union and probably are not too dissimilar to those used in other European cities of the period. I’d like to know where the painter got the numerals and signs.

    I should have bought more than one kit so I could make one battle-damaged.

    The PDF instructions are pretty good but pay close attention to how you orient parts and always test-fit first. The kit fits perfectly together! Everything clicks into place. I would guess that you could almost assemble it all without glue. At least, temporarily.

    I found that gluing it all in one go with white glue to be an advantage. There is a little wiggle room and later parts will often hold earlier parts in place when the tabs connect–so having the glue not quite dry is an advantage.

    I did assemble according to the instructions except that I did both ends at the same time instead of sequentially. You could also do the undercarriage parts after snapping the bottom layer of the top in place over the windows. That bottom layer of the top was challenging to snap in for all the window tabs.

    Otherwise I’d assemble it exactly as in the instructions–they’re really good except that a couple of photos could be clearer.
