Here’s my favorite model I finished recently. I used a lot of PE parts so the total count is well over 1400. It took me about 60 hours and 7 years to do this model.
I weathered the model with oil paints applied with a used Scotchbright pad.
I think the results came out pretty good. This was the best kit I ever built.
I especially like the way Tamiya supplied real rubber wheels with the kit (as opposed with vinyl ones).
Also, the wonderful headlights are due to Tamiya supplying chrome headlight inserts…a lot cheaper than using aftermarket lenses!
I am very happy with the result and I hope you are too!
