  1. Unmistakable clean lines and finishes of the type 21. As you say, the kit holds up well against other versions in this scale.

  2. Mine is not as old as yours but still the old Tamiya kit still holds it own against newer molds. Nice work PK. I built it back around 93 or 4 so about 20 years ago. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Nice work, P.k…can’t go wrong with Tamiya. 🙂

  4. In my opinion, better than the Hasegawa kit of the same subject. The only shortcomings are the “relief” engine and the decal instrument panel. Both can be overcome by aftermarket or the spares box.
    Plus, still a lot cheaper, as are their original Hamp and late Zeke 52 (C?) with the four gun wing, and underwing bomb racks.Both also have the waving ground crew, and pilot. Diorama stuff!

  5. Keep it, P.k. it’s too good to part with!

  6. P.K.,
    Very nice, looks great.
