I've often wondered if there could be a rating system on here against kits. So we know and can help each other out.

I believe there was before, but it's gone, I don't know why, might be because some starters can't follow instructions. Last week I had a very bad set, Trumpeter "Dicker Max". Bad instructions and bad fits all over the place. Normally I never have problems with Trumpeter, actually I like their kits a lot, but this kit was far too bad.

Mark, Robert, Neuling, Łukasz - thanks guys 👍 Yes, I'm glad to get these done after procrastinating so long. Even though they are small models, it is still satisfying to finish anything 👍 Will do some more photos soon with the cargo truck from the same series 👍

This was an interesting build. A long way from my comfortable Tamiya-zone experience. The antenna and the shovel were not fit for purpose, so I took a shovel from a 1:72 Opel Blitz and stretched some sprue for the antenna. Lost a lifting hook to a parallel quantum dimension off the end of my tweezers so I used the wire from a plastic tie strip. The gun attachment behind the mantlet looked like a dog had chewed it while it was still on the runner, so I cut a segment of bamboo chopstick that was the right diameter. The tracks seemed pretty good and formed nicely to the right shape, and then one of them snapped. I managed to bore the end of the gun out without destroying the plastic and without putting a hole in my finger. Quite pleased overall. I will give it a once over with primer and then I think it will look quite good with an olive drab base coat.

Yeah, just dive in and play and experiment like you are a kid again, and don't worry about messing things up, because failure is the greatest teacher. When I first started up again 5 years ago I was so afraid to mess up a model, that I built a little tank out of wood to learn to airbrush on, then later grabbed some toys from the local dollar store to practice on. When I felt comfortable enough I switched to actual models, and have been doing it ever since. It's a good idea to practice on stuff you don't care about first to gain experience ?

If in Japan, there are activities for foreign tourists to experience making food samples.
Of course including takoyaki or ebi fly. (^o^)
