I don't know about the Italeri kit, even though I have one to build,
but the Eduard/Extratech kits definitely have problems around the
gun and mantlet. These sets will go a long way towards curing those
specific problem areas.
The aluminium gun barrel and brass ammo are thoughtful additions to
some already useful up-date sets, typical of CMK.

The machine gun cover in set BE72012 I think was something they
forgot in the earlier sets, so they did an extra to provide it.
For any Braille Scale Modellers who bought the Extratech kits before
they found out about the faults, these sets are a must.
Thanks to MPM/CMK for the review sample.
