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.

God I hope Tamiya does a 1/48 Elephant.... The Bandai kit is showing its age

They scaled down the Matilda, I've been hoping that they'll do the same with the Elephant. There doesnt seem to be much ryme or reason to the 1/48th scale releases though. Oh well. At least we are getting a new tank instead of another truck or armored car. I will pick this one up as soon as it is availiable.
