ive done this kit before a long time ago so i know it goes together with no drama, as per normal for a Tamiya kit
but im not going to do it as it should be............these only ever came in a metallic silver (apart from some later ones in a red/white scheme) and im not keen on it, so it will get done in a colour as yet undecided
