Ki.49-II-Ko New Guinea 1944Completed

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 :)

Moritz Fentzahn
Nice diorama, Daniel what kind of gras tufts did you use on the base?
24. September 2018, 10:28
Daniel Klink
Hi Moritz, thank you much appreciated... Love your works. The tufts are from Silhouette mini nature
Cheers Daniel

Great work, good to see patchy ground/ grass, looks very realistic
24. September 2018, 12:01
Bryn Crandell
Awesome looking Diorama. Well done Daniel.
24. September 2018, 17:33
Daniel Klink
Thank you very much Bryn and Scott... Much appreciated.. Yes the field applied Camo did its job well :)
3. October 2018, 15:16
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, 16:43
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, 16:40
Miro Herold
Total realistic show, i like the fine details like the samurai swords.
11. October 2018, 17:08
Great paint job on that Helen! Wonder how you do it, are these supplemental vitamins (photo 21) your secret?
13. October 2018, 07:43
Kees Kleijwegt

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, 14:54
Nice figures indeed
24. November 2018, 21:25
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, 22:04
Oh oh I had not seen that one. How many others do you have up your sleeve ?
9. December 2018, 22:42
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. :)

@Olly thats it, just WIP left ;) Hope you like it!

Thank ou very much Henry These are some really nice and encouragin words :)
Much appreciated
10. December 2018, 12:53
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 2019, 09:09
Holger Kranich
What´s the velocity of an unladen swallow? ;) Absolute fantastic build! And i second the question from corporado!
27. August 2019, 09:38
Guy Rump
Sehr Schon Daniel, another superb Japanese WW2 model :)
27. August 2019, 18:19
Nathan Dempsey
Wonderful build with a great display as well. Very nice!
27. August 2019, 18:31
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 2019, 20:06
Stefan Schacht
Hallo Daniel, well done, i like the BW pic. Cheers Stefan
27. August 2019, 20:41

Long ago but if you mix the Chinchillasand with Birdsand you will get a really cool beach impression.
Started doing the EMily base( lately) :)
