Good review!

I am working on a Tamiya Opel Blitz in Winter, and my "knock" on the conversion would be the lack of chains on the wheels. I have the Tank Workshop" or Hussar upgrade in-house. They are specific to the Italeri model, which allows for the wheels to spin, but require the Italieri hubs (the hubs are cast into the Tamiya wheels).

I like the detail on the tarp, though.
