@ Richard - thanks for the comments. I agree with you, some more Japanese and other nations AF do make a welcome change from the more usual American, German and English stuff.
@Matt- thank you mate, and yes I feel this was one of the best Tamiya kits Iíve tackled, both in terms of detail and construction wise.The turn off part is the rather dullness of all versions of the Irving, which I think contribute to itís rare sightings in shows and posts online, which is undeserved.
@ Chris- Thanks mate! It was a pleasure to participate in the campaign, we had some rather exotic subjects presented there, such as your Mirt. Cheers
@ Joel- Thanks for the feedback, appreciate it a lot. Cheers
@ Terry- Thanks for the comments, glad you like it. And yes the Gekko is not our usual build, but it deserves to be more often built.
