Hi David. You will find that the Tamiya kits go together very well with minimal problems, and 1/48 is a good scale to start with.

Keep posting any questions you have, and post a few progress pics along the way, and you will get plenty of comments, support and encouragement from the people here.

Cheers, D

Hi David,

the Beau from Tamiya is a very good kit. I have several in my stash .... The fitting is perfect and you will enjoy building it. I think Tamiya is even a little better in fitting than Hasegawa. The Austin Tilly Car is also a cute little fellow, which is good for a rainy (or snowy) Sunday. I built one myself (of course in RAF colours). And as Damian stated 1/48 scale is perfect to start with. I only build in quarter scale.

Happy modelling

I can't think of a much better kit to start with, It really fits very well and is a good size beast.

Post some progress photos please
