I thought this was a good idea: take the Resicast M4A1 DD kit and mate it with the Tasca/Asuka M4A1 hull. Graham Seller of Resicast was nice enough to provide the kit even though he knew I was going to screw it up. I did try to add as many of his parts as possible. His skirt work is terrific and the support hardware is very comprehensive. Due to the differences between the original resin kit and the plastic one, it was necessary to do a lot of scratchbuilding. I also added a lot more stuff just for fun!
