This is a very old Tamiya kit, yes, old.
There are several problems encountered during this build:
1. The decal was a total lost. Luckily for 1950's there were not much of sponsors for racing. In the end I had gotta use decal recovery fluid to save the decal. This cause another problem which s the decal had become very thick n gloss coat cannot cover it 100%
2. The clear part, especially the bigger ones like the front n back windscreen. It cause very distorted images when look through it. But there s pretty much nothing i could do about it....
3. The chrome part. Tamiya is famous for its beautiful chrome. However, if there s any reason u need to wash them off, it's hell, especially if u need to remove the inside layer too. Luckily, it took me some time, n i couldn't make it 100% clean, it looks kinda alright in the end, with the help of Alclad's chrome.
Other than that, it's basically Tamiya's great model kit. Is very fun to build, accurate, though for AMS modelers, it might be too simplified.
Hope u like it! :)
