Something New"CHEAP"

I picked this up at a yard sale or jumble sale as some say.

For only 50 cents,I just couldn't leave without it.

It says Tamiya 1970 on the bottom and appears to be
the early Tiger with intake filters.
The zimm looks like it was done with a hot screw driver.

Is it worth saving and what would you suggest to do to
make it a keeper?

Thanks
L.D.

I would use it as a target for my airgun.

It defenately needs new tracks and a barrel. The sides need zimmerit too. It will be a real challenge to make it top notch model.

I'd say use it as a practice model for brushing and similar techniques.

I would give it to my 6 year old son, so he has a tank to play with (and keeps his hands of the real models)

I agree with Niko. I would use it for painting and weathering practice.
