Neuling I agree with Rui and Spanjaard. Btw clever solution of the helmet problem! - Howitzer or cannon? There is a good proposal of terminology on wikipedia ("howitzer") explaining "cannon", "howitzer" and "mortar". According to that your piece of artillery would be called "howitzer" and not "cannon". But the terminology and the technology of artillery have changed over the years and are different in the armies of the world. So don´t care about words and enjoy our hobby: modelling!

Want to use it to for afuture project of a Ki.45

Agustin Prellezo Hi, Daniel. It was not easy at all. It required a lot of dry fitting and checks. If you plan to open the canopies, it can deserve the work. If not, i would recommend you to improve a bit the hase cockpit.
Patrick Hagelstein The plane is great, but it is dwarfed in awesomeness by the pilot figure. Amazing job on a stock figure! No need for expensive resin if the modeler is an artist.

Agustin Prellezo I don't know what to say....Just thanks, mates! ICM has a great part of the merit! The leather jacket is painted with oils over acrylics and I must say that the result was better than expected.
Agustin Prellezo Going on with this kit taking advantage of the Covid19 isolation. The model is a good quality Hasegawa but it has a very poor cockpit. So I used the Pavla resin cockpit. It has very fine details, but I always find very difficult to fit the resin to the plastic.
Agustin Prellezo Thanks, friends. It was hard to finish. It is an old Hasegawa model, I had to scribe the panel lines, modify the seat and the wheel wells... and at the end, the decals. They were very fragile and the white colour is yellowish. In summary, I do not recommend this kit.
James White I couldn't agree more. This is a lovely old "space-age" looking delta wing and one of my favorite planes. I am very impressed with the scribe work. That takes patience and precision and I've never pulled it off with those older raised panel line kits.

Agustin Prellezo I did my best but I think i will not scribe any more. It tooks too much time and, in my opinion, the end result i can get is never as good as a "factory scribed kit".
Agustin Prellezo Thank you, friends. If anyone has this kit in the stash, take into account that the antenna location is wrong. The kit hole must be filled and a new one opened. The canopy in the open position will tell you where to drill the new hole.

James White Oh, my. I had a deep gasp of wonder when I saw this. Astonishing! I'm so impressed by the weathering of the fuel tank and gear doors. May I congratulate you on your exceptional photography as well? I know this is no accident.

William O. I applaud you sir, you did an amazing job on this one, and I agree, your photography is up too stuff. Kudos mate!

Agustin Prellezo ???? thanks! For the weathering I first used ak paneliner, later brownish oil paints and ended with sand color pigments. And I did the photos on my kitchen table with my samsung phone. No extra lights, nothing special. Just take a lot and select the best ones. I recommend a light grey background.
