The build was very easy - all parts fitted together and I finished the building process after two evenings. In the end I prepared shells, antenna rods and lifebuoy to create more real apperarance. One disadvantage only - the rear and front flaps. The "hydraulically" actuated flaps don't work in the kit the same as in real vehicle. So a little drop of glue were needed to keep all element in correct place.
Maybe this is not so popular subject but even than it's very interesting kit. Well, it's a huge kit - the lenght is almost 30cm! So who says the size doesn't matter? :-)
Edit: "Made in China" article and pics will be featured in Tamiya Model Magazine International soon :-) This is the reaso why I reduce the amount of the pictures.
