A quick build in between other on-going projects (I still have a Fokker D.XXI, Starfighter, MiG-25 and a KMW Dingo in various stages of completion lying around..) but I found this kit on the Militracks event earlier this year and it was a kit I wanted but couldn't afford years ago. The box looked OK, all the parts were still sealed in plastic and it was complete so I bought it. Quite a straight forward built as I would expect from Tamiya, even for such an old kit.
Plenty of detail with some nice touches like the steel mesh on the engine cover and all the movable parts like the radars, turret and guns (Complete with a ratchet mechanism that keeps the guns in place while elevated!)
The colour is mostly Tamiya Olive Drab with a bit of black for some smaller parts.
