Great subject! Never seen that aircraft before! Frightening mask set too..!
18. March at 22:10:56
HI Erik, Welcome.
One will only need halve of the masks for this version. No Turrets and no glass nose
But it is really a fascinating machine.
It is well done a real stunner though zero impact in combat
Built the LS offering long ago .
18. March at 22:16:37
OK... getting in on the ground floor for this one.
18. March at 23:16:09
This Tamiya big saw is absolutely lovely to work with...

BTW guys, If you ever want to build this - do not follow the instructions by Hasegawa where to cut the front fuselage for the nose
it is better to cut it ca 5mm further ahead. The nose diameter is too small otherwise.
9. June at 20:19:09
Another interesting subject. Watching.
13. June at 18:49:03
Hi Greg, of course a warm welcome to you mate... It i still enough place in the first row.. Take a seat and see how not to...
13. June at 20:42:26
A lot of sanding and filling with the resin parts is required - as i feared....
3. July at 17:20:19
Interesting subject Daniel. Looks great so far. Keep up the good work!
3. July at 17:29:28
Thank you Nathan...i will do my best... but look at this mess
4. July at 13:01:16
Another Japanese never-heard-of-this-plane build? By DK? I'm in
4. July at 15:16:11
The fit of the extra parts is a mess and as i said the instructions by Hasegawa are wrong. Do not cut
the nose section as sais there. Leave it as it is.
I had to reassemble the stripe which i falsely cutted off
4. July at 15:55:00
Welcome MArtin and Soeren..
But this one looks like a challenging non typical for Hasegawa built.
But some others like Roland managed it without lamenting so should i
4. July at 17:19:15
Despite the challenges, you appear to be making some great progress
4. July at 19:14:03
Thanks JAmes, some minor progress and in fact it was my fault with the nose in combination with Hasegawas confusing instructions.. One really has to cut off where Hasegawa instructs it in the manual
but they forgot to tell that you also have to remove the front cockpit section shown in Pic 3!
The last two pics show the correct nose setting for this version.

Thank you stephan and ciap Roberto
Glad that you like it..
But last night out of the blue my compressor did not stop running while i was sleeping. I forgot to witch him off. And the reason that the machine did not shut itself off, is a broken pipe.
See last pic .. DAmn now i have to look for replacement parts.
I hope the engine itself was not damaged because it was fairly hot when i pulled out the plug.
6. July at 09:22:15
While spraying is out of question anyway continued masking and preparing the surface...
7. July at 14:31:59
Still one rugged piece of gear, breaking a pipe then soldiering on until it got noticed...
In the current heat, mine got so hot I could fry an egg on it even during shorter sessions...
You'll surely find a proper occupation until the pipe is sorted, some fancy detail on the landing gear or the engines perhaps?
7. July at 15:22:12
Hi Slavo, spare Part is on the way. I will replace the whole safety valve.
Yea the engines are a wide field for upgrading with this kit but as the covers are very narrow and there will be a big venti behind the spinners you will see nothing afterwards , when you do not want to show it under maintenance with opened Cowlings.
But i have enough other projects that i should take care of, like the base for my Emily and other stuff.
7. July at 15:57:24
Nice looking aircraft. Didn't knew it either. Will you do a spaghetti camo (Also known as a Jens camo)?
9. July at 13:45:16
Good to see your compressor back to work! Even my wife agrees that this piece of equipment is of upmost importance!
10. July at 16:13:27
Welcome Bart, nice to have you here!. No i will do the Prototype scheme as on the kit cover
Hi Nathan, yes and i had a bit of luck that the egine survived it.
So i am able Introduce Miss Peggy Marble
10. July at 16:16:13
following with great interest, beautiful subject.
10. July at 17:30:34
Thank you Murad and Guy much appreciated mates
First thin layer of IJA Khaki Brown
11. July at 13:29:01
Aaah, that moment when all the color is on a Japanese WWII bird without a scratch... Never to last long...
11. July at 13:32:10
Hi Slavo, for this special machine it will.. Cause it was not used widely and except of some small scratches caused by maintenance work on it, there will be no damage or battered hull.
11. July at 13:40:44
Looking good, don't know whether it is still a small step shining through at the nose...
11. July at 13:51:55
Hi Bart, thank you and do you mean the shadow in front in the last pic?
11. July at 14:05:30
Yes, it can be putty/primer shining through also...
11. July at 14:11:13
Looking great Daniel. Hope you are doing ok
11. July at 14:15:47
Hi Mates, thank you for your interest and nice words
@Bart it was putty shining through..good eyes
@ALec: Thank you...well it is getting better but both events in a short time surely it took its toll, and i have no problem to admit, that i needed professional help.. And it was the right decision getting it.
15. July at 20:32:02
Glad to hear. Hang in there
17. July at 19:44:27
Hi Alec, will do my best ..thank mate
@JAmes Thank you very much, though i could have done better with the resinpart on the back iam quiet satisfied to with the outcome so far
18. July at 10:45:25
Looking very promising on the final meters! That factory-new paint finish is really nice to look at.
18. July at 11:03:03
Thank you very much Soeren, Slavo and Stephan for your nice comments. Much appreciated
18. July at 21:04:09
It looks just perfect on the cookie
The color combination turned out as an excellent background IMHO... I only now noticed it's 72 scale!! That's one great surface finish and super-fine panel work... Top job Daniel
19. July at 19:28:28
Thank you so much Stephan..
@Slavo that are some really encouraging and nice words.. much appreciated and thank you mate
19. July at 19:52:27
Wow Daniel, that came out great. Love that shading that spills over to the rising suns.
20. July at 01:36:38
Man... that is just FANTASTIC work. A real beauty. Makes me want to build some Japanese WWII planes...
20. July at 04:32:51
Excellent work again Dan
20. July at 12:31:33
Thanx mates for your kind and encouraging words
@Nathan thank you and i have to say this hasegawa Decals were really smooth and good.
@Greg Thank you mate and just Do it...please
20. July at 13:41:45
Great work and a fantastic finish Daniel
20. July at 15:22:24
Very nice, Daniel. Fantastic job. Congrats!
20. July at 19:27:28
Daniel, what colour is on the top? It is something like kasshoku tea colour?
20. July at 19:34:19
Wow Thank you Gentlemen for your nice words and compliments and that the rather rare subject seems to please
qDAvid Yes , but i mixed it from Vallejos 71.287 and 71.285 80/20 percent and filtered it at the end with 71.330 Khaki Green No3 very thin layer.....
For 1/72 the Ak color which is really great looked too dark for me.
20. July at 20:37:42
Cool plane dude! I really like the panel lining outcome/result.
21. July at 05:08:59
Red dot on camouflage colour: war machines can look like works of art. Very well done Daniel!
21. July at 12:38:20
Great result with a really nice painting
22. July at 13:51:29
Wonderful! I really like the result of the subtle preshading and the diorama base really makes a difference.
23. July at 02:47:06
This is Daniel's fingerprint in the model world. It is good work!
23. July at 03:48:14
Always look for the monster cookie... That's Daniel's claim to fame!
23. July at 07:00:47
What an interesting subject, what a great model- you did a marvelous job- again!! The vignette underlines the effect of the model, well done!
