A little project to escape the 1/700 PE when i'm bored with it.

started with the engine and cockpit. There is a lot of flash that has to be cleaned on this kit. Not something I'm used to with Hasegawa.

Take a seat Daniel!
Been working on the cockpit. No decals for the instruments so had to paint by hand.

Forgot to take a picture of the cockpit when finished, so here it is already in the fusulage.
Also, the masks were for a kate in lager scale (i guess 1/48 scale), though I swear it was advertised as 1/72. Bummer...
Trying to mask it myself now

Keep up the good work Rick
The masking will be a challenge for this canopy but i am sure you will manage this.
The cockpit looks Good

@Daniel, the masking is indeed challenging! But I try my best.
Wings and engine are added now. Begins to look like a plane!

I've been really busy with projects for school and getting an internship for the following schoolyear so the hobby fell short this time. I've finally found some time to start painting the Kate.

She is finally finished. Not my greatest build but it still looks OK to me.
As a will depart for Japan soon this will be my last project for the coming six months. I'll start new ones (finish existing ones) after that!
