The printing on the mats is not permanent as only after some life color thinner came into contact with the mat the ink did run and fir the price as these mats are a little expensive for what they are I was surprised how the ink smeared and ran. The mats are novel which is why I bought three of them yet seeing how easily the printed design runs or smears o would not buy them again, nor would I recommend them. This is disappointing as they do look so cool!
Fast delivery, great artwork, illustration and data at an exception price. Will be ordering additional mats.
This is my second time for this mat I just love the design
My old Michael's sourced matt is old and beat up so when I ordered track from tankraft I jumped on the Sherman matt too. Love it, what else can I say?
Best cutting mat you can buy and quite astatically pleasing to the eye. MADE IN THE USA!
Great edition to my desk! Nice quality mat. The shipping was fast ..
Great product. Great service!
The Sherman cutting mat looks amazing right out of the (large!) box; I needed a kick in the rear to clean and organize and purge some stuff at my worktable and this product was the catalyst for that. Looks great and holds up well after two months of use.
I may have to order the "enemy" version in the form of the Panther to balance things out :)
Absolutely love this cutting mat. It's great to have. You almost don't want to use it because it looks so good!
Really, really nice mat. The printing is crisp and the work surface is smooth as you could like. I also happen to love the Sherman. Makes the bench look great! I highly recommend it.
I am very pleased with this cutting mat. After noticing an advertisement for it I was hooked. I have never used a cutting mat before just a cutting board and I must say a mat is far superior. The mat handles a razor blade well and really is "self healing" Thanks for an awesome product. Would definitely buy again.
I actually use this one for work in my office as an engineer. It provides me with a comfortable surface to rest my arms on instead of the hard desktop.
I gave it as a present to a fellow modeler.
I love this mat. Perfect size and I love the graphics. I will definitely be getting a second one soon.
Great stuff, I love these things!!!
The color pretty much makes it difficult to see plastic parts of a similar color.
It does not clean up with Tamiya A-20 thinner and Tamiya's lacquer thinner makes the printed lines of the mat smear - even when used lightly.
Another great product.
I think these mats are fantastic good value for your money I've already got The spirits one but unfortunately knock my glue over, still good but decided to buy another looking forward to when my man Dave arrives in November and I can get it out of the packaging.
This mat is awesome, covered with a bunch of Russian Napoleonic figures that need to be cleaned at the moment and after several cuts this mat is holding up well!! Love the Sherman tank design, might need another one once they come out with a Jagdpanther!! :)
great mat. I have two. Both are mounted under tempered glass on my workbench to provide a pleasing cutting surface .
Well made products, thoughtful design.
As cutting mats go, this one is exceptional. The thickness and heft speak to its durability, and the surface texture provides the perfect level of friction for scale modeling. The printed design speaks to my love of armor modeling and leaves no question as to my work space's put pose.
Great mat , the background and color make small parts easy to see! Will be purchasing another soon
Very fast shipping, packaged well, my mat arrived un-damaged. I'm very happy with my overall experience.
Awesome cutting mat, the graphics go well with our hobby of scale modeling, and your T-shirts are really comfortable as well, can’t wait to see what you guys come up with next, keep up the excellent work
Really adds to your modeling experience - not only is it big enough to give you plenty of space it looks fantastic!
i haven't used it
It’s just sexy. Straight up. I get more compliments about my tankcraft cutting matt then I do about my models lol.
This is going to sound funny but It smells great - like a new toy.
No, I don’t want to have sex with it....but I would have sex ON it. Provided my wife does crush my ever precious model tanks.
I purchased this as a gift for my son who was building a Sherman tank model at the time. The quality is impressive. Definitely the nicest cutting mat I’ve seen. He’s used his mat for over 4 months now and it shows almost no wear on it. I liked it so much I purchased the Tiger mat for my self. The only problem I had was choosing which design to purchase. Now I want to build a bigger work bench so I can have room for the panther mat.
If you’re looking for a new cutting mat, I highly recommend a Tankraft mat.
I received the product packaged well and it looked better in person so I’m very pleased. It is the main cover on my modeling bench, looks pretty cool!
The mat is ok bar one glaring error,the tracks on the Sherman run the wrong way at the rear of the tank,not sure if this was an oversight or a printing error,but spoils the enjoyment of using the mat
It is my favorite addition to my work bench. Extremely durable and gives me plenty of space to work on!
Very nice cutting matt, good quality, and looks great on the workbench. Only issue, being in Canada, shipping via UPS is extremely expensive when you add the brokerage fee that UPS adds when it crosses the border. This is on top of what Tankraft charges, the brokerage fee can be close to $35.
pretty high quality mat, really impressed
To good to mess up. Frame and hang on wall.
An excellent hobby surface, Ill definitely be purchasing a mustang one once I've fully destroyed the Sherman!
Great product I love Sherman tanks
Love the new mat! It’s bigger than I expected which is perfect.
This was exactly the cutting mat I needed to complete my DIY, fold up workspace. It is a fantastic quality item, and I look forward to building many-a-sherman on it!
I put this mat on the guest side of my model building table to share with my family and friends. Again thank you for the great product. Thank You, Lewis
Can't wait to start my next build on it.
Fits my table perfectly. Love the Sherman Tank.
This is a great size for a mat. Models shown are 1/48 scale.
Just got my mat yesterday! Wow! Really fantastic! I went from an 12x9 to an 18x24, quite an improvement! Love it!
Always looking for a nice cutting mat for my hobby table! This one is definitely perfect both in size and the Sherman tank graphics since I love building 1/6 scale armor vehicles from scratch. It is perfect!
Like they say "it just looks better on the bench!"
I love my new mat, not only for the way it looks but its excellent quality. Whether your a newbie or experienced scale model builder this product is really excellent.
Thanks guys for the quick delivery and the excellent product - definitely recommend!!!
When the package arrived, I thought ‘this thing’s cartoonishly large!’ But in working with it, I think it’s the perfect size for the modeling I do (1/32 aircraft, 1/35 armor). Per-Fect! It holds up to scratches and cuts very well, seems to be unfazed by various liquid spills, and the only thing I’m worried about is the warning about direct sunlight. This thing’s going to live right by a window.
Great product, looks great, fast shipping. 2 thumbs up!
Excellent quality and detail; highly recommend this product!
Wow, this mat is thick and heavy duty, very happy with it.

Gift for a friend in Prague, Czech Republic.
This mat is huge! Very high quality. Print is impeccable. Highly recommended for sure.
Nice cuttingmat and fast shipmend to the netherlands
Thanks great product.
I like the pics on the front of it the size is as advertised and the specs of the Sherman tank in the upper corner is pretty cool so far I like the mat can hardly tell where you make any cuts I would recommend it to anyone looking for something different
These mats are beautiful! I got both the Sherman and the Panther just because they are so awesome. I know this will sound dumb, but I haven't used them yet and have actually thought about framing them and hanging them on my wall. They are that cool.
the product is excellent but shipping costs are ridiculously high
This is the best cutting mat I ever bought and the customer service is outstanding
Tankraft mat is amazing, thinking of getting a 18x25 panther mat. Thank you.
This mat is fantastic! Can’t wait for more designs!
I love this mat. it doesn't slide round, is self-healing, comfortable to work on and looks really cool.
I bought two Mats in the 2 different sizes & tank designs. I absolutely loved them. The service was also excellent. Looking forward for other designs in the future. You hit a home run on the Mats. Thank you
The matt is so nice, I hate to get it dirty! When it does get dirty, its always easy to clean. The print doesn’t smear and when I cut tape for masking, it heals super fast.
Looks great on my bench, even my wife likes it, finally gives my work area some class. Spilled some glue on it and it wiped right up with no damage. Great product
Looks great. Works as it should. I bought 1 of each and they look great on my desk.
Shopping for the Sherman tank cutting mat was easy. Unfortunately I like the mat so much I don't wanna use it as a cutting mat. I think I may hang it on my wall.
Ordering was easy, arrived on time with updates about its status, and looks great! Unfortunately I'm away for work but I can't wait to start using it to build some armor models.
I'm definitely looking forward to getting more mats when new designs come out.
Great looking mat! Functions well and really makes my workbench look even better!
Can’t fault it, because of the size it’s far easier to have more parts to hand, also small loose parts are easier to see, cutting on it is a doddle without leaving cut marks, highly recommended.
I like this mat it’s very durable fits on my work bench nicely and looks really cool I’m thinking of getting another one for a good friend of mine as a birthday gift.
We are a engineering prototyping manufacturer; developing, building and testing new tooling and/or component ideas. We work with various materials types. That said, we are under various customer NDAs that prevent us from giving too much details and/or suppling pictures. In short, I purchased these mats as cutting / assembling boards for a couple of work stations. I must say, they are GREAT! The size, material type and utilization capabilities are a perfect match for what we do; AND, the guys love them too! We will be ordering more!
That is one big mat
Excellent mat of the Panther. I went for the big mat and I was not disappointed. Once I saw the mat on Andy’s Hobby, I wanted that mat.
Matt mat mit tank.
Old mat had had its day, saw this one 18x24 Sherman, which was recommend on Andys Hobby Shop.
Give it a try l thought, glad l did, does everything it says on the tin, plus the size means you can spread a lot more model on the mat, handy when fitting numerous separate parts, and checking how they fit. Another plus, is the surface shows up small parts, easily lost.
I’m very happy with my M4 Sherman mat. It’s large enough to cover the work area of my bench and simply looks great. It’s comfortable to work on, does it’s job of absorbing the cutting force and it heals pretty good. I love this product and look forward to checking out future products.
Exactly what I needed
I have had a self-healing mat for sometime. It wasn’t great or grand, but it did the job. This one is perfect. The quality and color are perfect. I work with very small models and figures (15mm and 20mm) and the mat has helped me find those small parts. Great product guys!
Nice heavy mat, shows no cutting lines. I’ve already replaced my old worn out mat with this one and the Sherman diagram looks great on the bench.
