Fox_Two Posted April 18, 2020 Share Posted April 18, 2020 The builds keep on rolling during quarantine. After building two modern day aircraft I'm switching it up to a WWII era bird. I've heard great things about Tamiya kits and, embarrassingly enough, this is my first Tamiya build! This one was tooled in the early 90's so it may not have the modern day engineering I hear so many good things about but we will see. Initial impression: The kit is extremely detailed. Lots of rivets and sunken panel lines. Everything is crisp too. The plastic is solid and not the soft plastic you find in modern Airfix kits. For 1/48 it's a pretty simple kit as it only has three sprues plus one clear part sprue. There was some minor damage to one sprue which caused the engine cowling to be ripped from its attachment point. Not a huge deal as there doesn't seem to be any major damage to it. Decals look nice even including seat belts. I think I'll make my own from tamiya tape or milliput. Can't wait to build it! 7 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
