I can't tell you how much this announcement has made my day
Can't wait for the first pics to appear.
Knowing Tamiya kits, it will be a vast improvement over the DML kit. Not that the latter is bad, it is very well done, actually, but the fit is not great and there is always room for improvements. I put high hopes in the Tamiya Elefant and trust my expectations will be met by the usual Tamiya ingenuity.
When Tamiya announces a new kit, it usually hits the market not long after, right?
