The mold is bad and this sentence says it all about their quality....

 

"The Italeri products range has grown throughout the years, reaching more than 1,500 articles; this is also thanks to the acquisition of moulds from the Protar and Esci companies."

When it comes to Armour Italeri does not feature on my shopping list as there are much better and more accurate kits available - even with a full interior.

Too bad the bonus code included is not for a premium vehicle like it used to be (as shown even in the video you are featuring). Nowadays you get just an emblem as a bonus for an overpriced (compared to similar Italeri kits) model.

The Meng Panther does look to be a lovely kit, even if I’m not into German armour myself, but considering what I presume is the target market they really aren’t an option. It’s got to be relatively cheap and easy to build for the inexperienced. Meng, however nice their kits are, really don’t fall into that category. If you look at armour kits in this scale it’s hard to see who else WoT would have partnered with.

 

For me the more valid criticism is that the WoT versions of the kits don’t offer value for money.

Just noticed that they’ve released the P26/P40 which is a fairly new kit. Not sure if it includes the PE fret and metal barrel from the original kit though.

Can only agree with above posts. The build quality of these kits is questionable. I just finished the T-34/85, the upper & lower hull weren't a great match when assembled, there were sizeable gaps with the rear panel of the upper hull when attached to.the rest of it.

 

Compared to other 1/35 kits very pricey too. It worth it if you want the in game goodies or the WoT emblem decal sheet.
