Started this in the (NZ) summer and then sent it to the 'Shelf of Forgetfulness'.

Brought it back to the bench last weekend and grabbed thirty minutes here and there through the week to get it finished this afternoon.

Everything you see is what came in the box, I mixed my own (contemporary) JGSDF camouflage colours using the always (un)reliable Mk.I eyeball method and possibly some witchcraft. And to be honest there's not too much else to say - typically Tamiya, a two-weekend project that took ten months ! - Please feel free to hurl abuse, make any suggestions / comments or ask any questions.

Have the rest of a great weekend folks, best from New Zealand

Well it comes with a one-piece die-cast floor-pan that you screw the suspension onto... so, yep a huge time-saver there.
