When the decision to build this Sheridan was taken, the only option was to use the very old kit from Tamiya. Academy had already announced their own kit, but by that time it was no more than a promise. Nowadays, looking back and with both kits available, we see that the decision was not at all wrong. The intention was not to build a straight from the box model, but to get it detailed like a kit typical from the 21st century. To approach a project like this, it was essential to take as base a 1/35 drawing, correcting several mistakes and kit omissions.
