Ki.49-II-Ko New Guinea 1944Completed

View images (40): | | List

This litttle Dio is situated in the south-east Pacific Theatre.
It shows a machine of the 62nd Sentai - 3rd Chutai.
A japanese "heavy" Bomber type Nakajima Ki.49 Donryu (Storm Dragon).
But in fact it was rather a "Breeze" Pigeon...especially when it was bomb loaded ( Monty Pythons greeting :) )
here is a short but informative portrait of the type.

Mine just got a fresh new undercarriage cover, which it lost during a raid over Port Moresby.
An interested fighter Pilot take a critical look at the mechanics work, who recently fixed it with a new one.
Thats the story :)



This album is attached to project Nakajima Ki.49 Donryu New Guinea 1944.

24. September 2018 at 10:11:13
Moritz Fentzahn Nice diorama, Daniel what kind of gras tufts did you use on the base?
24. September 2018 at 10:28:16

Cheers Daniel
24. September 2018 at 10:38:42
Daniel Klink Thank you Hoodlum..
24. September 2018 at 10:50:39
Scott Dutton Great work, good to see patchy ground/ grass, looks very realistic
24. September 2018 at 12:01:11
Bryn Crandell Awesome looking Diorama. Well done Daniel.
24. September 2018 at 17:33:32
Daniel Klink Thank you very much Bryn and Scott... Much appreciated.. Yes the field applied Camo did its job well :)
3. October 2018 at 15:16:04
Neuling Beautiful diorama! I like the weathering on the plane surface. Small wonder you achieved this with the help of the nice beetle!
10. October 2018 at 16:43:08
Treehugger I know I should compliment the model, but I think the grass is stealing the show where, looks stunning. :) Going to steal that idea!
11. October 2018 at 16:40:24
Miro Herold Total realistic show, i like the fine details like the samurai swords.
11. October 2018 at 17:08:55
Paul Great paint job on that Helen! Wonder how you do it, are these supplemental vitamins (photo 21) your secret?
13. October 2018 at 07:43:12
Kees Kleijwegt very cool dio!
13. October 2018 at 07:48:59

Neuling Klasse Diorama! I like it very much!
21. October 2018 at 21:27:27
Daniel Klink Thank you so much Roberto
Thank you Dead and Neuling , glad that you like it :)
26. October 2018 at 23:23:19
Daniel Klink Added a pic of the red box IJA figures painted!
Though they were soft and difficult to sand and paint it is a pity that they aren't available anymore.
The poses were unique and useful for dioramas.
23. November 2018 at 14:54:19
Spanjaard Nice figures indeed
24. November 2018 at 21:25:21
Daniel Klink Hi SPanjaard, yes and especially japanese Airforce figures in this scale or any scale in mediocre quality are hard to find. The CMK Resin offers are not really of good shape and proportions.
9. December 2018 at 22:04:39
Olivier Oh oh I had not seen that one. How many others do you have up your sleeve ?
9. December 2018 at 22:42:20
Henry I really like how you build a story. It is the sum of all its parts. Very good... but all your work is VERY good. :)
10. December 2018 at 02:59:54
Daniel Klink @Olly thats it, just WIP left ;) Hope you like it!
10. December 2018 at 12:52:46
Daniel Klink Thank ou very much Henry These are some really nice and encouragin words :)
Much appreciated
10. December 2018 at 12:53:48
coporado Eyecatcher Daniel! Fantastic build of every single component, coming together very smooth! What did you used for the ground stuff on the base? Did you colored the grass (with airbrush)?
27. August at 09:09:03
Holger Kranich What´s the velocity of an unladen swallow? ;) Absolute fantastic build! And i second the question from corporado!
27. August at 09:38:58
Hans Robben What do you mean, an African or European Swallow?
27. August at 09:52:20
Guy Rump Sehr Schon Daniel, another superb Japanese WW2 model :)
27. August at 18:19:11
Nathan Dempsey Wonderful build with a great display as well. Very nice!
27. August at 18:31:19
Slavo Hazucha Great dio, very nicely done Japanese colors without any "overstatements" in chipping or weathering The base/dio just round things up perfectly - as the BW pic proves!

+ @photo 15 - the integration with Nature is really perfect here ;)
27. August at 20:06:32
Stefan Schacht Hallo Daniel, well done, i like the BW pic. Cheers Stefan
27. August at 20:41:51

27. September at 12:20:06

27. September at 12:48:36
