Well...first again, finishing that is. Upcoming final eye surgery next week will leave me hampered in seeing detail for awhile, so ready or not, here it is.

Actually a fun build even though outside my desired types. A few challenges, being 1/72, but Tamiya, as usual, finds a way to make even this size go together somewhat easily. Maybe not so much the rear view mirror!!!

The obligatory shots:

Thanks to all for the comments.

And the surgery being done is a common one, not too risky, but will keep me from participating in builds for a few weeks. Time to find a kit for GB57!!
