About GaryKato
.After long thought, I am just a kit assembler, not a true modeler. I build with what the kit provides; no after market parts. I am also a builder rather than a painter. I don't bother if a color is too green or too blue. Currently, I am just trying to finish up the kits I've started, mostly pre-shake'n'bake Tamiya 1/35, with a smattering of Italeri (M107, M24, Panzer 38(t), Leopard 2, LAV-25, M13/40), and some Dragon (SdKfz 251, Scud-B, SA-9, T80U, IDF M51), AFV Club (Wiesel, SdKfz 251, sIG33), and early Trumpeter (K1A1, JGSDF Type 89 ICV). There are also miscellaneous aircraft , ship/subs (mostly DML), and car kits (Tamiya, Protar, Fujimi). Once I complete these, I shall see if I still enjoy this hobby.
