Great start. Impressions of the kit so far?

 

typical Tamiya quality regarding fit and engineering, enough detail for 1/48

Me too. I've never cared much for modern (last 20yr) armour but this is a great build and I'm enjoying it.

 

This may be a silly question: was the weight included? I've only built a handful of armour kits.

In their earlier 1/48 armour kits Tamiya included full metal lower hulls for the tanks. Since some time now Tamiya moved back to plastic hulls and therefore metal pieces are provided in the kits.

Nice accents in the paintjob. The color looks very close to the tan plastic, so the paintjob is les indistinguishable. The mark of squeezed out plastic would have not have been easy to recognize until you made us aware of it ;)
