M8 Light Armored Car (Greyhound). This was the first Tamiya model I have ever put together. I started and finished it this weekend. It had a lot of fiddly and small parts including having to glue the drivers binoculars to his hands! Which wasn’t happening! Overall I am very happy with it and believe it is about 95% complete. The only things left off were a few attachments that broke or some alternative items that I chose not to use. For those who may be considering putting one of these together I would definitely recommend two things, some instant glue accelerator as well as a good pair of tweezers. This is going to be used in a game of Bolt Action. And I am definitely now looking forward to putting together some tanks which should be a lot easier. Bolt Action sales its own vehicles however most are still in resin with about a third of the detail of these Tamiya models which are plastic and are lighter but still sturdy enough to game with. Oh yeah, the turret actually traverses.
