This is an outstanding kit. These little Tamiya kits of the M3-M8 series of light tanks as I have 3 now are jewels in anyones armor collection. Ease of construction, detailed parts in the kit and adding on more detailed parts are just a few of the advantages to this type of kit.I paint all of my models and dioramas using acrylic craft paint and find that these will adhere to any surface with little preparation. The finished models that I have can be viewed on Facebook Hobbies in a Barn.
