    TAMIYA 61120 LOCKHEED P-38F/G LIGHTING

    Beautiful kit, as known, very detailed and well cared for, as per tamiya tradition. Shipping was very accurate and on time, neat, the model was well protected in an additional box. For me, who live far from Japan and the shipping costs are very important, it was the Plaza Japan discount that gave me the opportunity to buy the model ... Reducing the shipping costs would give me a lot more chance to buy. My little girl also liked the gift included in the package. Thank you
