Time to shift to the Dark Side, and build some armour. I'm opening this momentous occasion by cutting some sprues for this new, initial release from new company, Takom.

That's my tent pitched. Keep tuned folks!

I've done a little test fitting today, and some clean up of the larger components. Generally, everything seems to fit beautifully. the side walls need to be pulled in a little so they mate to the hull floor all the way along, but it's no issue. The side walls also have tongues which key into the cabin floor. I have tried the lid on the hull too, and can report it fits beautifully. For a first release, Takom seem to have hit the ground running.

 

I've also assembled a couple of track links to see how easy they are to use, and they look to be a cinch. No issues so far folks....

It is a seriously nice kit. I'll resurrect this one as soon as my current project is finished.

 

I hope you'll share your build here?

 

Hi James,

 

I can do that, yes.

I am looking for information about the colours of the engine at the moment.

An other question, does any decal manufacturer did or will do some other marking ?
