This is built from the Tamiya kit, It is box stock and was a really nice kit to build, I'm happy with the results but i should have put more time into getting the Two sides of the tank to fit properly, but you live and learn and i'm certainly planning on building more of the Tamiya bike kits so any experience with them is a good thing. I am also missing a mirror as the dog got at it before i had a chance to take the photos !IMGP1331_zps3f0236eb.jpgIMGP1329_zps9ef835e4.jpgIMGP1334_zps34b8e42f.jpgIMGP1330_zps8f215aa2.jpg
