TOPIC: M32B1 by UM

That's interesting Mark, I've only built 3 UM kits, The SU 76 fell together, the BT-7 had a few niggles but wasn't bad, the Gaz was a bit more work then the BT-7. So far the issues with the Sherman are the transmission cover need to be thinned on the inside alot where it joins the front of the lower hull, and I also got cuaght off guard in that one hull side sits higher then the other...and while the track links are a little wonky where they go around the sprockets all and all they don't fit to badly. I've not yet built any of their German offerings.

What other 3 do you have? As I see a few others I was thinking about, and what were the issues if you don't mind my asking?

The only UM kit I have is a russian Su 122 which I built like 10 years ago. Don't recall any issues with it. The kits I am interested in getting are the American M10 and M36 as well as the M7 variants etc. Have you built any of those Mark?

I had no real issues with my Su-76 either; and my SAu-122 fell together... once I found the missing sprue of wheels. my UM BT-5 fell together too. On the three Shermans, I had one with the wrong panels that were supposed to go underneath the upper hull bulges that overhang the tracks. One of the others had the wrong tranny cover that was either misshapen or incorrectly molded so that no matter what; it didn't fit no matter what I tried. The third one had turret parts that were so messed up they wouldn't go together to save your life. The one I'm doing now with the mine rollers is the first one that I was able to get close to done.

I also had no problems with my Su-122 once I found the missing wheel sprue, as I mentioned above. I have the M-10 and the British tank destroyer based on the Sherman chassis too, as well as the M-36B(?) engineer vehicle and the other engineer vehicle wiith the gun turret on it. My apologies for forgetting the names of these. I haven't started any of these yet, but I do hope to get to them soon.
