The picture shows the soft plastic sprue du canon antichar de 45 mm PTP M.1937 et its crew prior to assembly. The kit is designed for dioramistes who need the empty shell casings et ammunition boxes to create a realistic scene of a gun in action. Joueurs de guerre, too, will be happy to have the additional equipment items which can be used as stowage on attendant véhicules ou to add visual appeal to un socle de canon antichar. Two 45 mm gun stands are needed to raise un peloton de canons antichar légers attached au bataillon d’infanterie ou d’infanterie motorisée soviétique. Les figurines d’équipage de canon antichar sont cast without bases, et they can be difficult to attach permanently to a wargame base which will be handled frequently during simulation games.

- Bon choix de sujet, figurines d’équipage de canon antichar soviétique are difficult to find in this scale. Le canon antichar de 45 mm, aussi, is a rare find, it was previously available only as a more expensive metal model.
- The gun has only 6 parts et is relatively easy to assemble.
- The figurines look like conversions of existing soft plastic figurines from various manufacturers, et they may serve as an inspiration to joueurs de guerre et dioramistes interested in creating their own gun crews from regular infantry figurines.
- The gunners may be used to crew des canons antichar soviétiques from other manufacturers which are sold without figurines.
- Compatible avec AER, ESCI, Hasegawa, Revell, Cooperativa, et SKIF.
- Assembly instructions are not included, et the gun can be put together without them. However, a simple drawing would have been nice to indicate the angle of the gun shield et the alignment of the gun sight.
- The soft plastic parts cannot be glued securely, although superglue should hold the gun together well enough for diorama purposes. Joueurs de guerre will want to solder the parts together permanently to prevent the gun from falling apart during a game. This editor used the Rai-Ro ZEP-70 pulse regulated soldering iron to clean the figurines et fuse the gun parts together.
- The gun wheels are not of the wire spoked type, they look like solid steel wheels. Modélistes sérieux will want to replace the wheels avec more suitable items taken from another kit.
- The figurines are cast without bases, making them rather difficult to attach to a wargame base. Dioramistes may consider this an advantage if the figurines are to be glued into an existing landscape model.
- Noticeable flash needs to be removed from the figurines et ammunition boxes prior to painting. The gun parts were relatively clean.
- The ammunition boxes are slightly distorted due to shrinkage, but they should look good enough when painted. Modélistes sérieux may want to create their own ammunition boxes from plastic card.
