Thanks Dann!! Just the way I’d want a 1:1 if I could have one.

Thank you JT. If I could have one it would be an exact copy of this one.

Wow, this is a great model! Excellent work in every department.:wub:

IMHO, this Tamiya kit comes with a big downside compared to other kits (like, for instance, the Aoshima one). And that is the molded-in "half-engine" detail instead of a complete, separate engine. That makes it so much harder to paint and detail it in order to make it look good. But you sure MADE it look good!

And I thought the yellow one was good! Mind-blowing stuff, sir.

Thanks Pete! Glad to see this is still getting attention after being done for a couple of months now

Thanks Thomas! You are exactly correct about the stupid molded in engine.  I love Tamiya Kits but this was super disappointing, and a PITA to mask and paint up correctly.

Thanks Jim. As soon as I saw a pic of one online, I had to build one.  Here is my inspiration for this build.
