SHOWCASE

The Tamiya Deuce and a Half by Tamiya, kit no. 35218. I finished this in 2011. This is one of Tamiya’s best out-of-the-box armor kits, in my opinion. The wheels are beautiful, the wood grain on the cargo sides in excellent and the drivetrain is a marvel of engineering. It’s one piece! This a real time saver for the modeler. Clean-up is still a must, but your part- count is minimized. There are also nifty upgrade sets, like 35229, which is cargo and fuel drum set. In addition, there’s a machine gun ring and soft door set, kit 35231, if you want to add some interest to the cab area. I painted my kit with Model Master enamels and weathered with oils and pigments. The figure is from Alpine. The road is 2000 grit sandpaper and the signs are from the side of a Tamiya box.
