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...

Very nice looking, thanks for this Jim. My poor wallet is going to hate me, this is a must have.

Looks great! Going to have to see about expanding the stash bit, I guess.

Massive fan of British armour but a little disappointed by this. It does look a nice kit but we are already well served by AFV-Club and Mini Art. It would have been nice to see some of the more unusual types that haven't be covered elsewhere - Matilda I or an A9 but I can understand why Tamiya might have thought them a bit risky. But there is one glaring omission that is dying out for a decent model - the A15 Crusader. Apart from the very old Italeri offerings this tank has been pretty much ignored in 1:35. Tamiya do a nice one in 1:48 so if I had known a 1:35 British Tank was coming I would have guessed a Crusader. But would never have guessed the Valentine - nice as the model is it is already covered more than well enough. Cheers, Nigel
