Back in the 1980's and 90's, I built a number of Tamiya armor models, and I thought they were pretty good back then. And they were for the time. Some kits dated back to the 1970's and you could see how they were originally made to accommodate small electric motor drive systems. But they were nice kits for the time.
However, they do not compare with this Easy Eight kit that came out last year. The modern Tamiya armor kits are really superb.
The model is now fully assembled and ready for final painting. (With US armor, you can have any color as long as it is olive drab.) On this one, I am going to attempt some weathering and will add some after market details.
When I am finished, I will post some photos.
