Here we go. My new projetct and my first Japanese JGSDF vehicle. An Type 10 tank. The build so far was very fast and without any problems. The most time consuming are the workable tracks from Orochi. Very nice and fast building tracks as you do not need any glue but really are pain in the a** to clean up.
The part that is connecting the single links in the middle is very small and got two big attachment points to the sprue. Really hard to clean up.
By the way, you need 79 links per side as there is no information about it in the instruction.
Right now i am in the middle of the turret build and half way trough the build groups like commander and driver sight. I am not going to attach them yet as i have to add all the PE parts.
The handles are molded solid so i have to remove them and add the PE parts instead.
The big problem are this small parts that are also molded solid and looks like"grab handles" on the real tank. I assume those are attachment points for the camo net.
There are 232 in total and this are very tiny PE parts...... this will be fun.
