About Jim Starkweather (staff_Jim)
FROM: CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES

I started building models in 1971 when I was 6. My first model was a 1/32 P-40 Warhawk. Revell I believe. From there I moved onto the standard cars, Apollo spacecraft, and other kid orientated kits. I don't know what got me started on Armor. I must have seen a Monogram tank kit one day and said "Mom...

Here's a photo I found which shows the 'tractorish' tires:

Would not be surprised, they're pretty good that way! Michael

The detail on the Atar is incredible. It looks like a promising model.

Hi Jessie The tread doesn't look as heavy as it seems from the video. More "truck" than "tractor". All the best Rowan
