This was my third AIrcraft Kit after restarting the Hobby after a 10 years Break in 2014.
I got the kit as a special offer for about 15€.
And it was a painto build.. Major Fitting issues and not quiet accurate as you would expect for the original Price of ~30€. Especially the engine fitting to the fuselage was a fight.
But see the pictures. I finally brought it to a Result. I will do the AIrfix offering in the nearby future.
Then i will see if the problem was the man or the kit

Cuajete I did not think that this kit gave so many problems. The effort was worth it. Good work. Congratulations!

Daniel Klink Thank you, the result is quiet ok. But this was the kind of building experience like: bring it to an end ...somehow.. but finish it.
I should have given more attention to some details and the paintwork, especially the wearing and shading but i just wanted to get that thing of my workbench
Cuajete Daniel, where did you get the display base?

Daniel Klink Hi Tom thannk you yap they are mostly looking elegant and sporty..
@Cuajte hm, i remember i bought a apsir of them one was US navy deck and this Akagi deck.
But I cant remember the Manufact but i think it was HM(Hobbymaster) They are complete in Plastic, already printed. It is several years ago that i bought them, i really cannot remember.
But i saw them recently at amazon but it seems they are out of Production and
sold out everywhere. !?

Cuajete Thank you, Daniel. I thought I saw that it was HM, but I needed confirmation. A few years ago I wanted to get some of these display bases, because they are in relief and I think they have a better result than the printed ones, but they seemed a bit expensive. Now they are not easy to find.

Daniel Klink I paid 15 euros for both as i remember..
They re really not bad and with some weathering they really make a good base.
Better as most of the printed fotopaper things...
