Kit Preview : 1/76 Nitto BMW R75
About the manufacturer
Nitto produced 1/76 armor models in the seventies and eighties. They were very sophisticated for the time, often including interior and engine details, separate, lights, tools, and stowage. Unfortunately, they tended to get the big picture wrong and most had major dimensional flaws.
Nitto kits are now sold as part of the Fujimi range, but it is worth remembering the origin of those kits.

About the kit
The instruction sheet is from an original kit in Japanese. The picture are self explanatory:
The main problem with the kit (and the main deterrent for me) are the wheels. Mad Mike from the small scale AFV forum has found a solution. He rewired each wheel with eight wires!
In summary, it looks like a good little model. Size wise it's hard to judge before assembly.
