Hobby Boss M26 Engine Compartment

I have this kit on my bench, quitting the Tamiya version in disgust. The kit does have an engine compartment, but I’m wondering if the engine is like the actual one, or should I even bother with it because I’m showing a running tank anyway.

What is the problem with the Tamiya kit?


Here are pics of an M26 engine and compartment to compare yourself.

Verlinden’s take on it.

Thanks. They seemed to have gotten it right after all.
