Tamiya Valentine Mk IV


Recommended Posts


great looking model and the base really sets it off

what paints did you use?

the tracks - are they the kit ones? - look a little black / too uniformly dark, but maybe that's just the lighting

chipping looks just right to me and really brings everything 'together'

Like all Tamiya kits, an easy and quick build.  I used Lifecolor paints for the main finish.  Tracks are kit tracks (link and length) painted with Humbrol Gunmetal and buffed before weathering-they are darker in the photos than in real view.

The complex engine deck looks ok, but compared to the AFV kits, it is less detailed and more simplified.  The AFV Club kits are excellent.
