haven't made models for years and i managed to grip chance making a small but funny kit from Tamiya. it is 1/48 and the moulding is excellent, the build is extremely easy and i found in the internet that somebody claimed he built it within just a lunchtime (i think he meant a lunch buffet then)!!
it's built basically OOB. only replacement of the hoses and making the seat cushion a bit curved (the original has an exact rectangular shape!). instead of using the original Japanese Navy Grey color, i painted it as an ordinary bulldozer in the construction site....... orange-yellow
i think the weathering is a bit over-done, but i enjoyed the process.... just for fun!
hope you like it.
of course, all comments are welcomed!
