One of the models I have built in the course of this year is this Panzer IV. The kit is an older one from Tristar, which is getting re-released soon under Hobby Boss brand.
The kit was mostly built, I just needed to add few photoetch parts, what has happened today. While the kit is good in terms of overall quality and molding of some tiny parts is really impressive, there is a lot of small issues with the fit of the parts. Some of them can be ignored as they are hard to see, but some were really annoying. I truly hope Hobby Boss will address these before reusing the molds again, otherwise it will be really a pity to have such a good kit plagued by all these fit issues.
