The Zokai Mura Kit is on my wish list as well. I'm a 72' - but considering to order 48; not sure yet - I will have to dice.... 😉
looking forward to your project ...

I've done the 48 Dragon ages ago, I think maybe it could be the only not-72 kit I ever made. Don't know how the SWS 48 is compared to the 72nd, but the latter need lots of cleaning from nearly every pieces

Hi Andrea, the 48th scale also needs a lot of cleaning. Especially where the part is fixed with the sprue. Sorry don't know how to write this in english. But what I can say about the quality of the parts. The 72th scale part D1 is -sorry- of poor quality. I just building the 48th scale zoukei mura horten. An the parts a crisp an well detailed. I think I'll start with a project and show some picture of my buil, so you can compare. Would be interesting to compare the 48th scale with the 32nd....

Hi Norbert, your english is perfectly understandable, hope the same of mine! Please post your progress on the 48th Horten, it will be helpful. I've seen pictures of other Zoukei Mura's sprue kits, some are very well moulded, some are of the same quality as this first 72nd release, I can only hope they will do better with the next one, if they are planning one. There are lots of smaller and less renowed eastern european company that can mould kits with an astonishing quality, I wonder why Zoukey Mura can't do the same in Japan (or China..).
Thx for the interest!

I have built a 1/48 version of this kit ! And it turned out to be a very nice kit to add to my collection.

thanks all! The boring part is already done, I'm really enjoying this project now even if I will carry it on in few steps, due to the many things I wish to put in it, not to mention the diorama... wish me luck!!!

Ho-229 (Jasmine Model 202002, 1:72)
but all details are flat and I left all unpainted...)
