Tamiya AMX-13 Photo Megaganza

Our first impression was that this kit is everything that Tamiya is famous for. It's simple but well detailed but still leaves room for aftermarket companies to jump in.

From the instructions, it looks like this kit could easily be built in front of the TV in a few evenings. The tracks are vinyl and Photo Etch detail is limited to a single, well-rendered screen for the circular intake fan on the engine deck. A half figure and decals for two French Army vehicles are provided. The only thing we saw that was missing was some periscopes for the commander's cupola, but this is easy to fix.

And now for the sprue pics:
