Hi all,
I just finished my little Dingo MK II from Tamiya, 48th scale.

I'm really disappointed by the weakness of this kit.
Tmiya was rather stingy this time.
The combat post is ...empty ! The seats are ...symbolic.
No radio post (even if the tank commander is talking in a microphone!!!) no bag, water bottle or helmet.
No Bren Gun or even a poor single riffle.

Well ! Disappointed.

Anyway her's the pics. Any comments are welcomed

Nice job! I tend to be a little more forgiving when I model in 1/48. Tamiya still managed to make it look better than their old 1/35 Daimler Mk II.

Tamiya's US Army Infantry at Rest set in 1/48 has a ton of accessories in it. And oh by the way, they threw in a nice Jeep as well. I bought five of them (two just to get spares for the old Bandai Jeep trailer, whose tread is off) Too bad you're in France - I'd just send you an assload.
