I assembled the tanks from the Monty's Deserts Rats box last night. I just want to say that they are really nice models. Such a precise fit on everything. I really enjoyed building them in the three hours that I worked on them. I also did not realize the Crusader was such a large tank. Guess I always thought of it as a "light" tank and assumed it was smaller.

The one small issue I do have with them is the tank commander figures that come with the set are the standard "British Tank Commander" sprue which just don't look very 8th Army to me. One of the figures is completely unusable for the desert and the others seems a stretch but painting will help those. Also you only get one sprue which will not cover all eight tanks if for some reason you wanted to put a tank commander on every tank.

Agree, they are nice models. I appreciate being able to convert Grant/Lee with the swap of a turret. Wish there was an extra turret on each of the Panzer Sprues. There is certainly room within the sprue for an additional turret.
