Nigel I bought this from MBK, but I think it came from stock elsewhere. Some politically-correct vandal had not only covered the swastikas with black stickers (thus defacing the photo reference sheet), but had also removed the swastika decals from the box. Sod’s law, that was the version I was hoping to build!
Holger Kranich So we can see a nice BT-42 from you in the near future?

Nigel It really depends on your definition of "nice".
Let's just settle for a BT-42...with swastikas

Holger Kranich Hang in there, dude! We are waiting.
Do you plan to add any aftermarket aside from the decals?

H K Oh come on, it`s a Tamiya kit. It is per definition nice

Nigel @Holger, I'll see how it goes together. I may just make it OOTB...other than the decals!
@HK, some of their older tooling is showing its age (I'm currently working on a venerable Tiger I from 1989, it's OK but needs aftermarket), but the BT-42 is relatively new and has had good reviews so it should go together nicely.
The only place where Tamiya sometimes let themselves down is...the decals! And that's not going to be a problem for me
