I have this kit as well, this is one incredible model, considering all they put in the kit at that price.

Your photos look very clear and crisp, is there some basecoat/primer in some of those photos? Sometimes its hard to tell with digital cameras and lighting etc.

Nice job BTW, can't wait to seee it complete.

No primer yet Paul. Just the color of the plastic and the lighting makes it appear that way.

I'm using some ancient Olympus digital camera. I think the clarity can be traced to the Adobe Photoshop program I am using to clean them up before posting.

More pics to follow!

I know what you mean Sam, it's almost too good to even start!! I must've gazed upon the sprues in the box a dozen times before finally cutting the bags open.

Here are some more shots. I wasn't going to add the interior detail on the fuel tanks, etc. But what the hell? It's included with the kit why not?





Checking fit in the hull. Looks pretty good, but now I have to get the airbrush out and start painting!





And the 48 or so roadwheels that I cleaned up today while watching basketball:



Honestly though, there is no mold lines evident on the roadwheels so there was little sanding that needed to take place.

Hi Stuke,
just don't copy my way of colors for fuel cells and radiator walls. Hull red was covered in early Tigers without blue-green.
