Its hard to believe out of my 40 odd years of model building this was my first piece of armor. The Tamiya kit of the Gama Goat was typical of their line, great fit and finish. Being my first 1/35th scale model I realized that it means lots of SMALL parts. The Goat was painted with Tamiya spray then washed with Testors black wash and finished up with Tamiya Weathering Master set A. All in all it was a great change of pace from the typical car or plane I usually build and will definitely try another one!!
