Looking great! Terrific subject, such a unique aircraft. Your seamwork is flawless.

I managed to snap the canopy :( But at least now she is in primer.

Christoph Kunz
Pic 28... how did you fix it?
26. August, 19:44
Andrea Morris
@Christoph I was lucky that most of the canopy is not see-through, so I just glued (TET) it back together avoiding the actual transparent bits. After a fine sanding you won't notice it. @Gary compliment accepted :)

Nathan Dempsey
Interesting subject. I'm tuning in.

I love 'em: built the 72nd Italeri one...best camo schemes!, so tell us how the 48'er goes together?
27. August, 13:36
Andrea Morris

@Andy The kit is fine with no real issues. If you have built a Trumpeter kit before then you know what to expect. I did end up with a 1mm gap in the nose, that turned out to be no fault of the kit, but a result of the Yahu instrument panel. I am also having a tussle with mounting the engines in their cowlings. I have put them to one side for now until I figure it out. The underside is painted, when it's fully cured I can get on with the camo on the upper surface. Should be done over the weekend. NB: Handle the canopy with GREAT CARE, it's fragile and I snapped mine whilst giving it a gentle polish!

@Andrea: I wrote my comment before looking through your commentary and photos. I'm on the cusp of going 48 from 72, and want to know how certain subjects I like would perform in the larger scale. The Italeri kit wasn't without its issues too, I see you've coped well with your challenges on the Trumpeter (I've just done their Tupolev and it has few fit issues....but accuracy, hmmmm!)

The chassis, engine, and cab are built and painted. Dashboard decals to be applied and then I can do some weathering. Great kit, no issues so far.
20. June, 14:27
Andrea Morris
A little more progress with painting the internals. Major assembly can now take place. The fool that I am, I went and glued the filler cap on upside down! :( I had to saw the end off, pack it with plast-card, clean it all up and then scratch build a replacement filler neck and cap.
22. June, 13:57

The cab is painted, glazing & is now ready for assembly.
29. June, 12:38

Cab, grills and bonnet are assembled.

It's very noticeable when you put it next to, say, a 109 in your display cabinet! Things were delayed somewhat when I realised that the walk-way was in the wrong place :( I had to de-bond it and move it to the correct position, sand and re-prime.

Is it a strict mirror image or could the masochistic among us saw the props off, make a jig and reverse them?
30. June, 07:01
Andrea Morris
Yes, if your such a masochist that is do-able, is that pain really worth a tenner (£10) ??? :) (Resin replacement is available from Hannants)
30. June, 10:51
playtime 222
The other more pragmatic approach for me is to just relax a little and have it as a known quirk. I expect my OCD will win and Ill make an attempt. I have a huge stash and no time, so no idea when I get to this one. Hannants may have closed or the heat death of the universe.... :D
30. June, 16:26
Andrea Morris
lol :) They won't be around for ever, BUY NOW! :) My SO has calculated that, at my current build-rate, it will take 6 years and 8 months to build all of my stash!!! But then I am retired. As I type, I am masking off the splinter camo so I can paint tomorrow.

Lovely kit from Eduard. Going together without any real issues, although some parts do not line-up well. The cockpit is built, as is the engine. Just the PE belts to add before the fuselage halves can be joined. And the PE instrument panel is gorgeous!
30. June, 14:06
Alexander G.
Got my kit recently too, what I found striking was the rather strange coarse surface structure
30. June, 15:47
Andrea Morris
Yes, rather like Airfix. The moulds are not from Eduard. Problem being, if you sand it off in one place, then it will look odd against the rest! It was going to go into my stash but it is such an unusual subject that I started building right away ????
30. June, 17:42

Fuselage is together & tail-planes attached. Now the cockpit can be inserted and the wings added.
16. July, 14:23

Hi Roland! The wings, tail & rudder are on. PE seat-belts fitted & cockpit installed.

She's been primed and the belly has been painted RLM78 whilst the upper surfaces received a coat of RLM79.

Errr... It's been cooking for some time! I can't put it off much longer as I now have all the many pieces needed. I hope @Peter Hardy didn't really glue him self to his seat or else he has been there for two years!!! :)

ROFLOL I thank you all for your considerable forbearance :) I am practising using the "hairy stick" for the figures but at the moment my donkey looks more like a German Shepard!!!
5. July, 11:36

Tamiya's "Tent Set" is assembled, primed & received a base coat. The plaster barrel has been primed and had a base coat of "Natural Wood". And the "Dragons Teeth" have had a base coat & some high/low lights added.

Peter Hardy
Dave, do me a favour and count the things on your bench you should have put away because you have finished using them.
9. July, 22:20

@Peter Errr that would be none! A place for everything & everything in its place :) :) I'm calling the barrel finished as I am happy with the look. The "Dragon's Teeth" require some more weathering.

Pilot figures are painted including Admiral Yamamoto :) Great kit, as to be expected from Tamiya, just some details to do before a varnish & wash.
21. May, 11:28
Treehugger
Are pre-painted canopy pices also included?
21. May, 12:54
Andrea Morris
Yes they are. :) That's going to save a shed load of masking!
22. May, 09:11
Andrea Morris
The figures, cockpit assembly are installed & glazing fitted. Now she's ready to be buttoned-up.
25. May, 11:23
Andrea Morris
Fuselage halves are together and wings n things are on. Seem sanding time before dealing with all that glazing!
1. June, 10:47
James C
Nice work so far on this and have it in the stash as well. I'm 50/50 on the paint scheme though... Yamamoto's transport or camouflaged. Will be following.
1. June, 18:50
Andrea Morris
@Jim C I figure that if the kit is Yamamoto's plane then that's how I'm going to paint it. If I wanted to do something different I would of bought a different version. :)
2. June, 12:28
Andrea Morris
As the kit comes with pre-painted glazing I can just tack in to place the un-painted glazing without having to mask at all! :) And now primed she is ready for paint. Judging by the amount of primer I used, she is going to take a LOT of paint as she is a big bird.
6. June, 12:41
Andrea Morris
Mitsubishi green applied to the upper surfaces
8. July, 10:52
James C
Looks to be coming along nicely. Great job on painting the crew and Adm Yamamoto figure.
My kit doesn't have the pre-painted glazing unfortunately.
8. July, 18:45

Cheers James! Anti-glare panel and silver underside are painted. A few touch-ups and I can move on to painting the insignia & other markings.

There is a distinct lack of detail on the cockpit walls but then you won't see a lot of it. With a low part count, things go together quickly. I'm just waiting for some seat-belts to arrive before buttoning her up.
1. June, 11:02
Andrea Morris
HGW seat-belts arrived, boy are they fiddly! I had to use an opti-visor and it still took an hour! Still, she's buttoned up and the wings are on. I have some filling & sanding to do as there is a huge gap on the port wing root :(
18. June, 14:54
Andrea Morris
Now she has been primed, painted dark Earth all over then masked and the dark green applied. As I'm using enamels, she needs to sit for awhile to fully dry before moving on.
