Basically, there r a few mistakes n lessons learned from this build; pretty much most of them could be avoided.

The main thing caught me in surprise was the Tamiya primer; which seems to be reacting when there's a wet coat where thinner's strong. So far has never encounter this problem with Gunze's primer before.

Besides that, the fitting for this kit is not as perfect as the usual Tamiya car kit I build, especially the front windscreen. The problem, however could be easily countered by simply heat up the part n manually bend them.

Other than that, this is pretty much a very fun build, stress free n experience a few things I had never tried before.
