RPM TANKIETKA TKS - Beginnings of a Kit Review

Okay, let me admit to indulging in one of the nerdiest of hobbies. Yes, building plastic model kits. My little post ages ago of a picture of "Takeshi and Ichizo" in a Japanese military car was no accident. I got it from a modelling magazine.

Anyway, to your left is my somewhat blurry pic of the contents of the RPM 1/35 scale Polish Tankietka TKS.

I'm going to be doing a review of this kit. Now this will be a somewhat unusual review, because I'm just not that good at building model kits -- I'm lazy. It's more fun that way. If you look at most kit reviews you will find the builder is very adept with airbrushes and aftermarket parts and expensive resin or aluminum add-ons, but I just build out of the box and use the same techniques -- more or less -- as when I was a child. I've tried an airbrush, for example, and I just found it a nuisance. I paint with regular brushes.

Well, that twice a week thing seems to have gone by the wayside pretty quickly.

me maxima culpa! Yes. THis is very embarassing. I could make excuses, and I have good ones, but there is no point (*sigh*)
