Wow, great looking model! Bill, your step-by-step photo system is very effective, thanks. You have told me what I wanted to know about this kit so now I will get one.

I shall be adding one of these along with the forthcoming SU-76I from Dragon to my collection soon. Looks like a great kit and a great subject.

Very good review and useful pictorial step by step... I spent hours many years ago on a SU-76M kit from Russia (Maquette if I remember well ...) but this new Tamiya offer is now on order ! Thanks Bill
