Hi all well I've decided to start this one, it's supposed to be a see through model but I didn't like the fact that the roof of the clear body had the Tamiya brand moulded into it which you could clearly see so I decided to spray the body a solid colour.

Never did like the clear kits, either. I've got a couple of nice ESCI Crystal kits, but they have injection marks that look to be too much work to correct.

I'm really enjoying this kit, being Tamiya everything is a great fit, I'm loving the clever way they designed the rear and front windscreen, no gluing all push fit and I like that they supply masks for said windscreen anyway here's the next lot of progress.

Gorgeous work! The level of detail is astounding (but a see-through body requires that I guess).
