This was a 1/12 multi-media kit from Tamiya decades ago...... lots of diecast structural parts, Sheetmetal body skin, and plastic fenders, detail, etc.

Although intimidating, it was, like most Tamiya kits, very well engineered and molded. The suspension all functions as it should.

The green body parts were molded in color, but to make their plastic finish and opacity more realistic, I painted them in automotive basecoat/clearcoat.

Tamiya makes great kits... especially their diecasts.
