The further construction is now differentiated enough to continue with two galleries. Imotos Ki-43 will show opened radiator flaps

The lightning has been masked and masking solution has been tabbed on the surfaces, to arrange a certain amount of abrasion and wear and tear of the surfaces - now on to spraying IJA gray on the underside!

Thank you James, feel very welcome of course!
Meanwhile the surfaces have been prepared for the decals, a certain amount of red will be a nice addition to all that spinach green and yellow! 🙂

Very catchy contrast between the yellow and green, Roland ! Chipping by salt or hairspray or both ? Looking very good and realistic !

Thanks Hanno and Daniel for remarks and "like"!
I dabbed "Maskol" on the Alclad "White Aluminum" surface and finally rubbed it off. Afterwards, the IJA green was added again in some places, but in such a way that it remained translucent.

Decals and a sealing cover of Gunze gloss have been applied; tomorrow I am planning to reduce the glossy surfaces with a matt finish

Imotos Hayate is ready too! The double project was a rather light-footed, easy-going modelling pleasure - and still adequately instructive. Thanks for all your comments and your interest!
