A major problem of the Tamiya kit are the air intakes, because.....there isn`t a real intake. So i decided to build my own seamless air intakes.

First i started with some styrene to give the new intakes the right shape

I scratchbuild the air intake ramp interior and the ramp actuator

After that i scratchbuild the whole air intake from styrene. Here you can see the finished air intake, ready for painting and weathering.

Here you can see the new intakes which have now been sanded smooth inside, painted and weathered
