Tamiya JS II ChKz

Well, i've been in my new place for a week now, so thought it would be a good time to start a little modelling.. Im on a months leave now too, so there is no holding me back..

To ease myself back into it, I thought i'd have a crack at this:


As you can imagine, its a Tamiya kit, so the quality is there - but its all fairly basic, so i'll be just detailing the kit up, not going bonkers with aftermarket stuff (also coz there isnt anything out for this kit yet!)

I still havent got a photo booth set up set up yet - so not too sure how i'll get shots in construction - but we'll work something out!

Sam

Should be somewhat compatible with PE and turned barrels for the old DML JS-s, no? I mean, you'll have to deal with those engine deck screens somehow right?

HI Darren - tamiya saw it in the goodness of their hearts to include etch deck screens!

This is supposed to be a very nice kit. (I don't have it yet.) I'm looking forward to following your progress.

Cheers
