I crack up every time I see one of these!

Nice looking model, though.

Hope you remembered to bag everything again;) Can't wait to get started on this, it looks like more than half the construction time is going to be on the suspension.

whooaa, you turn your back for a moment, and the asylum goes berserk....

What did I miss? Is this a variation of the old Tamiya characters who popped up in the instructions, G.I.s on US tanks, Krauts on Panzers, a Brit with the Churchill, you know what I mean? Or is there a more involved part for the 'girls'..?

I just took a look at an episode on You Tube and have come to the conclusion that health and safety may not let them hold this competition in the UK as they are not wearing safety helmets.

Yep, Girls Und Panzer anime/manga. Everything, and I mean every thing you can think of, every little genre and sub-genre every little niche has a manga/anime devoted to it and this be one to. Even this season, there's one with girls and submarines called Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio.

Win win I say, companies move their product and the animation studios get their cut, fans get their anime goods. Now It might just be time to build another Tamiya IS-2.....
