  1. I have seen Screws in Tamiya's Bike Kits and some of their latter 350 Ship Kits. OK her Hull is now done. I sanded off the F/D Details to be replaced with a Pontos Deck which fitted perfectly. The way they did the Hull means a lot of Putty and Sanding. Not what I expected from Tamiya. More to come soon.....Cheers mark
