no shading, no Decal setter, no Vallejo painting semi Brush and airbrush, bad photos
But mainly no internet so no flood of information long research
Good old times. in some way
Lets build the new Revell Hurricane with colours already in stock.
Most of them who survived the "Aces Cats" are stored in boxes now in the garage.
Roberto Rocat Lovely early works, you had the right stuff from the start By the way, yours is the first built Shiragiku that I see...Interesting aircraft.

Alec K Very cool Daniel. I love this old stuff! I definitely agree about the "no long research" times - it was more fun that way. Your Bf 109 diorama brought back memories: I built one just like it back in the 80's. Thanks for sharing
Daniel Klink @Alec, your written words were exactly my intention with this album. No masterpieces just a bit of nostalgic moments to share. Getting Dio accessoires from the garden or wifes Decobox. Thank you very much for your kind words and

Daniel Klink @cuajete Thank you! Many of them went to nephews or neighbours kids. or fell for the furby Hunters in the house, who wanted to help with the dust on it

Daniel Klink @Roberto Thanky ou Roberto! Yeah the Shiragiku were an odd thing that wasn't succesful in any way.
But i had to make it

Rick Corts How did you get the open canopy on your shiragiku? Just cut the canopy? I build mine closed. It doesn't look as goed as yours though!
You can check mine in my photo album if you want

Olivier Now I understand... I really like the Hurricane. And your Shiragiku is also my first seen.

Treehugger Aah, this gives me an idea. Would be nice I think, so see an entire winter diorama with a white painted airplane. Then, heh with the snow and all, most of it would be white.

Daniel Klink @Olly yes the Hurricane Mk.I is the old Revell tool and was made within 1-2 days as a teenager.
Good ol times

Guy Rump Great collection Daniel, your skills were impressive all those years ago. As with others that is the first Shiragiku kit that I have seen.
