looks fantastic. It is great that Tamiya released it just before the holidays. I can see many happy modellers finding one of these under their Christmas tree.

The price seems also right, 3,700 yen is about 33 USD, not expensive.

This kit is what the Eduard G-6 was supposed to be. Thank you Tamiya!

....that The surface detail on the Tamiya kit will not be anywhere in the same league as the Eduard kit. To me, the surface details on the Eduard kit are superb and a huge attraction to me. Both Tamiya and Hasegawa are weak here.

It won't be out until Feb 2018.

So , next Christmas it'll be under many trees! Looks like a great kit.

but that's a matter of personal choice. I like Eduard's riveted surface detail, but the kit still has some important errors, like the oversized exhaust openings and the exhausts themselves, an error that is practically unfixable.

Here is a link to Spencer Pollards review from yesterday. He makes a point of letting folks know it won't be available until at least Feb '18.

...this is addressed with a resin plug and smaller exhausts. JB

new kits in the USA/Canada before the home market. Possibly the Feb. release date is for the home market? Then again perhaps they have another kit in the queue , armor of ship that has first call on the molding machines...

Not even a mention on the Tamiya USA site. And a month or so to go!
