Here she is boys and girls. Not a bad kit. Most of the parts fit extremely well which takes away the "cuss-factor" for the most part. :)

The only after market items are the instrument panel and some cockpit placards by Eduard. I used Xtracolor for the exterior paint and Model Master for the Grey Green interior areas. Wheel wells and struts are Alclad dark aluminum. The codes HS*P are Xtradecals while the rest of the markings are kit decals. I hope y'all like the results of my efforts.

Be careful of the toes that you step on today for they may be connected to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow.

Thanks. I don't know how much help it will be for the Tamiya kit but I hope you can glean something from it.

Awesome build and of course, no time wasted in crossing the finish line. As always, beautiful finish work - cammo and decal work are simply flawless.
