Here’s mine 1/48 is my favorite scale I bought this last winter and have been waiting till now to build it and start a GB. I know I’ve changed my mind a couple times but I think I made the right choice. 827F8020-2FE3-41E6-AD8A-72945C51274C.jpeg3F0F4520-59B2-4C2F-8119-C1D36D5850F0.jpeg9052F67A-4776-4622-9CAD-7A8E3584993D.jpeg

Seat front and centre for this one Lee. Looks like a nice kit. Good luck with the build my friend
Thanks Steve you have plenty of room to stretch out. These Tamiya 1/48 kits have been good to me so far let’s see if this one will. Thanks for stopping by

Guys I hope to be starting this soon. The snow storm has got us behind at work and we’re really busy and when I get home I’m just so exhausted. Please bare with me things should be better next week.

No probs Lee. Real life has a way of blindsiding us sometimes. We’ll still be here when you’re ready, waiting with bated breath….

Hi Lee
Great choice of kit. I think these 1/48 scale Tamiya kits are excellent. No worries about starting later. As Tim says Life so often pushes bench time down the priority list.

I finally got some progress on this. This is a very easy build and the fit is near perfect with every part typical of Tamiya. I’m really enjoying this and it has revived my Mojo. This will be my stopping point for now. Next is the tracks this will be my second link tracks I’ve done and I want to be fresh when I start this so please no Rabble when I start the tracks I will need full concentration after that Rabble on.

Have no fear Lee it's looking very nice , as for the tracks build up using on upside down tape , ( what your glue are you going to use ? )
That's what I was told and it works. If I could do it you should find it easy .

I'll watch (very quietly) you doing the tracks, never done them myself, seen a few done on here, but always willing to learn

Good work so far Lee. Tracks look pretty good as well, not as many parts as the Trumpeter ones John, Allen, and I are doing…they even look pre curved. Im sure you’ll be fine with them :thumb2:
