  1. If anybody is looking for suitable 40 year old kits to build for the special category, just let me know your requirements. I've got a bunch.

    1. I found that some of the older Tamiya kits (with Japanese language boxes) usually have a copyright date printed over one of the Tamiya twin-star logos on the long sides of the box. The Walker Bulldog, for instance, has a "© 1975" on it. So I'm assuming it's good. The Bulldog is "MM-55" so I would assume anything with a MM number lower than 55 is safe.

    2. It might be a good idea to clear the 2 comments here, so that people who don't read close will think we're reprising our 40-year-old category again in 2018.
