A couple of years ago, my friend Patricio, and I started to build which was by that time, the Tamiya’s new kit . He finished the model and published an article at Modelersite and mine was under mid construction waiting for better time, you understand what I’m saying. Now it’s the moment to finish it and here’s the article with some changes, regarding especially to the improvements made on the kit and the materials used for the weathering.

Tamiya’s kit offer us the chance of building four different vehicles, and depending on the vehicle being built, you get the choice of two types of fenders and exhausts which combined with 4 sets of markings, allows construction of each possible combination, so you have to decide about now on the final finish of the kit. As Patricio had chosen the "Bourrasque" which is the one illustrated on the box, I decided to build one alternative.


The fit of parts shows that Tamiya engineering is still superb, just little putty was needed on two punctual places such as the commander’s cupola, split in two and the resulting minor join seam has to be sanded smooth.
