25. January at 18:00:21 Share
Spanjaard i am in :) curious about this one. nice blue color :)
26. January at 08:40:50
Dennis Yeah, isn't that gorgeous? I am positively in love with that one, too! :D

The kit itself is neat, it's mabye less than 50 parts, 30+ years old and you still can throw some glue into the package, give it a shake and a completed plane falls out. Gotta love Tamiya in that regard! :D
26. January at 09:07:02
Spanjaard indeed :)
26. January at 09:52:31
Miro Herold Nice Aotake colour, but the instrument panel should be painted in interior colour.
26. January at 14:11:09
Dennis According to the instructions, the instrument panel is metallic blue, too. I was wondering if it's actually any different, but I like it better that way. :)
26. January at 14:41:28
Dennis That said: some quick googling shows every A6M cockpit painted in a "regular" greenish color, where the Tamiya instructions clearly state "metallic blue-green" (actually metallic blue X-13). Did that switch at some point in the war?

I don't mind, since I am not aiming for historical accuracy here, but it leaves me wondering...
26. January at 14:45:18
Dennis Checked some Instructions of Tamiya kits that are not as old (the A6M3 here is from the 80s) and there the cockpits are painted in cockpit green, thusly: the instructions are simply wrong. The more you know! :)
26. January at 15:03:22
Spanjaard as long as you like it :)
26. January at 16:23:19
Dennis Ah, I'm fine! It *is* gorgeous and a 14€-kit, can still improve on that and want to build an A6M2 at some point anyway :)

(saving it now is nigh impossible too, or at least far too much effort)
26. January at 16:37:30
Spanjaard I have the Tamiya A6M2 in my stash, plus some resin etc.... i am sure will be a great fun. i just do not have a clue when :D
26. January at 23:03:26
Dennis Haha yeah, I totally understand - I want vacation again! xD

Konrad Limmer Cool Dennis, bin dabei sieht gut aus. :)
19. January at 19:44:39
Dennis Hey Konrad, vielen Dank! Nach der komplexen F-4 wollte ich mich mal bei was einfacherem entspannen! 17€, dafür ist die Detaillierung ok, die Passgenauigkeit erstaunlich gut - ne Menge Grate und Auswurfmarken, aber ich komm zurecht! :D
20. January at 19:43:50
Konrad Limmer Gut zu hören ;) Ja das verstehe ich bin noch dabei mir ein etwas kleineres Projekt zu suchen. Aber irgendwie will es nicht so recht klappen :). Ich schwanke noch zwischen der SR 71 und der X 15. Ich tendiere ganz stark Richtung X 15. Mal sehen. Ich schau erst mal bei dir zu ;)

Konrad Limmer Cool progress Dennis! It looks fantastic so far
22. December 2017 at 18:36:09
Martin Oostrom Just in time to take a peek? Yes!
Great job so far Dennis
29. December 2017 at 00:04:58
Dennis Thanks so much, Konrad and Martin! Got the weapons built, will prime and paint them in 2018, decal it all up and should yet finish during my vacation :D
31. December 2017 at 14:49:40
Dennis So, I dare to call that one finished! The kit itself has been an absolute pleasure to build save for some verrrryyyyyy few things, that were a bit ambigous in the manual, some fiddly things and some decals that are bigger than on the decal instructions.

All in all I cursed far, far less than with my late Revell kits and I already decided on getting another Academy F-4 in the near future!

Worksmanship-wise: it's a bit mixed. I managed to damage the chevron-decal (but think I fixed it alright), had some major airbrushing hiccups - could have been better, but it still has been a ton of fun AND I think I managed to rectify all major errors rather nicely so I am really proud right now.

Next kit will be a smaller / faster / quicker one, though :D
13. January at 14:51:55
Konrad Limmer Wow that looks really fantastic! Great Job on this spook .
13. January at 16:14:13
Spanjaard really nice, good reason to be proud. and very nice modelling corner by the way.
13. January at 19:42:14
Dennis Thanks so much, Konrad and Spanjaard! It means a lot to me to hear that from you guys! :D
13. January at 20:38:02
Patrick Hagelstein Wow! So nice and tidy! The Phantom also by the way! ;)

Bryn Crandell Very nice looking 190. Great work all around. Like Spanjaard notes, it takes a lot of practices to get the weathering effects down to a science.
29. November 2017 at 14:37:20
Dennis Thanks for the kind words, Bryn! It sure is, but then: learning is fun, isn't it? :)

Gastón Bourrec Excellent
29. November 2017 at 17:21:29
Jens Absolut Genial , der Edu Kit hat ja seine "Engstellen" aber die sind definitiv perfekt verarbeitet Lackierung vom feinsten

Roland Aßmann Very nice Langnase
29. November 2017 at 17:32:35
Dennis Thanks, Gastón, much appreciated! :)

Jens: Danke, das geht runter wie Öl! Und ich HAB geflucht manchmal mit der Passform - hab eigentlich so viel gutes über die Edu-Kits gehört, aber manchmal hätt ich in den Tisch beißen können (und es gibt echt noch so ein paar Ecken... aber man is sich ja immer selbst der größte Kritiker! :D )...

Und auch dir, Roland: vielen Dank!! :)
29. November 2017 at 17:33:13
Jens Die Passform war bei meinen Weekend und Profi von Edu ok, nur die komplexe Verarbeitung der Teile , gleich ob A oder D Version, wollte man das geschlossen zeigen , dann bleibt das Gebiss in der Tischplatte :D
29. November 2017 at 18:52:03
