Just noticed that i never built one of those by now
Time to give it a go
21. June at 21:00:02
Following with interest, I've got one of these in my stash
21. June at 21:05:00
I'm in. I have the Tamiya kit in 1/48 scale.
21. June at 21:06:30
Well another Japanese bird from Daniel. Very interesting for me. There is also one in my stash. So I'll take a seat.

What is the next fuselage on the fourth picture? Another interesting project? Very promiaing so far
22. June at 05:35:59
Hi David! Yes they developed it from the Hiryu..But it was not successful anyway
22. June at 21:11:38
Welcome Rick, glad you found it !
and while Peggy waits for her Make up, Betty gets her fuselage setup
8. July at 15:30:33
Hm, the fit of the Cowlings and nacelles could have been better.. Well still some work to do.
It is just a test fit but you see it clearly even without primer..
Also did some sanding and rescribing of wrong fuselage panels by HAsegawa

Following one more time, Daniel

Welcome mate, and i hope i will bring this to a good result
28. July at 18:18:55
I'm in, of course. I, too, love these Japanes aircraft!
29. July at 16:33:09
Welcome DAve and Roberto, take a seat and happy to have you here
29. July at 19:54:57
Welcome Slavo, all those window and interior stuff with japanese planes could really be troublesome during building..
Especially you have to glue the clearparts before fixing to the fuselage. But in the end i love those flying Greenhouses

That's some very tidy masking work Daniel!
3. August at 20:49:40
Thank you JAmes.. and still a lot of badges to do.. But end is in sight
3. August at 21:36:48
That is a fair amount of canopy masking.
I've noticed that some people use 'Parrafilm M' for masking canopies, have you ever tried that Daniel? (They stretch it sideways, one way, then lay and push it onto the canopy parts, apparently slightly adhesive that way, then they cut away excess with a sharp blade).
I ordered some of the stuff recently so I will get to try it out, otherwise I am used to using Tamiya masking tape.

That's a black belt in masking-ikebana... Quick count & some man-math indicate there must be around 40 of them total... in 72-scale...!
4. August at 12:38:48
Thank you very much Guys
@Treehugger yap tried it but for me the pre cut Eduard stuff works best . If it is not available for a kit i will do the Parafilm thing.
@Slavo it is finished and the "Load" is fixed together and masked to..
4. August at 20:01:12
Next step was business as usual the black and white preshading..
7. August at 16:01:24
Your planes could not have been built on an assembly line, the bearings of that line would be glowing! Impressive progress
7. August at 17:29:03
Thank you Frank
First layers of grey green nd IJN Black green added
7. August at 18:56:05
Nice start to on the paint Daniel. I can already see that this is going to be another superb looking paint scheme.
7. August at 19:26:44
The green perfectly accentuates the cucumber-shaped form of the rear fuselage end...
7. August at 19:43:13
Thank you James for the encouraging words..
I hope it will do so in the end
@Slavo !LOL yes but in fact it is abit darker than the pics show.. but nevertheless good point
7. August at 20:44:07
Oh, I've been looking at this kit in 1/144... sign me up to see how the master tackles it.
8. August at 15:24:27
Thank you so much guys for the encouraging and nice comments..
@Greg your words are making me blush...
In 1/144 is the old ArII or LS kit ... I think Academy got also one
8. August at 22:13:39
Fantastic work Daniel:
Bought this kit a few days ago again to build it with the Ohka.
Sadly Tamiya has no G4M2E in 48...
9. August at 10:57:45
Thank you Soeren! Still a nice kit ! But many transparent parts
9. August at 11:32:34
It is indeed and yeah its a lot of work even with masks - took me quite a time on my Ginga
9. August at 12:00:09
Gosh you nailed the paint work again Daniel. Looking fantastic!
9. August at 20:15:27
Welcome Lukasz,,, perfect timing
Thank you James for your very kind words.. Love to hear this
9. August at 21:26:06
Really lookin great with the colors on
The glasshouse also turned out superb, earns you the official title of 'Tape-i-do Sensei'
10. August at 09:56:08
Looking great Daniel.
What yellow paint do you use on your Japanese aircraft?
10. August at 13:41:18
Fantastic progress, Daniel.
10. August at 22:14:48
Thank you so much gentlemen for your kind and encouraging words...
@Slavo "LOL" and a big Bow
@Guy this time i used the decals, though i said i will never do it again last time with a Hasegawa kit
Antenna and wire added just a few things like a bit of washing and acentuating to do
11. August at 20:19:22
Thank you Stephan
a bit annoying is the fact that the aircraft fin and rudder spread and now there is a small gap visible. I heard a rather silent crack too. Now i will try to fix it with tamiya extra thin
13. August at 10:23:19
"Betty" sounds like a nice woman - so this one is a nice plane
29. August at 09:55:58
Hi Frank, the lady was nice plane which easily caught fire when approached her
24. September at 09:40:13
Hi Daniel, nice photos of a nice result. Did you use some "rusty" washes or something similar for your finishing? I think it is visible on the tail part of the plane and near upper turret on the last picture.

Hi David, yes i uses some umbra mixed with rust pigments as a filter there.
