Easy Eight, Easy Build

The model is now taking shape in the usual swift and easy tamiya manner. The running gear is now all completed and looks very good. One tip is to leave the rear idler mounts loose and not glue them as per instructions. If you do the tracks will be too loose. I test fitted all the wheels and tracks then adjusted the idlers for a nice tight run of track then glued them in place.

The upper and lower sections of the hull just push into place and really don't need glue the fits that good. 


  1. Looks good so far. I have this in my stash and is next on my list. Keep up the good work.

  2. Cheers Shawn, it's a really stress free and fun build, you'll enjoy it I'm sure.
