Tamiya 1/12 Super Seven Caterham JPE Instruction Manual

Hi dear forum members

I hv recently obtained the Tamiya 1/12 Caterham JPE (Tamiya item# 10203) from eBay but found out after receiving the kit that only an almost illegible copy of instruction manual is included (I am guessing it is just an download from hobby search japan www.1999.co.jp/eng/!).

I checked on the excellent Tamiya site http://www.tamiyausa.com/pdf/manuals/ which archives the instruction manuals for most of their scaled models: unfortunately only manuals of 10201 and 10201 (the 1st and 2nd SuperSeven kits) are found. The 10203 kit has quite different part numbers from 10201/202.

I am just wondering if any of the forum member can help or point me to the right place to get a pdf download of a sharp 1:1 copy? I am willing to pay for a reasonable fee for it if needed.

BTW, the 1/12 Super Seven Caterham is truly a masterpiece from Tamiya, perhaps the only comparable kits are the 1/12 Enzo and Porsche 935. What's unique about this kit are the miraculous details reflected by all those casted metal, aluminium body, the body frame and even as minor as a separated rubber engine belt . I sure hope Tamiya can reissue these 3 kits but with all those MM parts I suspect that economacally it will hard for Tamiya to justify....

Tks in advance for all the info.

Dear All

You won't believe it (well I don't), I send an email to Tamiya Japan about 1 hr ago explaining my situation, and they responded to me including a pdf copy of the instruction manual!

Excellent services, Tamiya.

Tks again
