Erik Leijdens Great subject! Never seen that aircraft before! Frightening mask set too..!
18. March at 22:10:56
Daniel Klink 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
Greg Baker OK... getting in on the ground floor for this one.
18. March at 23:16:09
Daniel Klink This Tamiya big saw is absolutely lovely to work with...
8. June at 22:53:10
Daniel Klink 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
James C Another interesting subject. Watching.
13. June at 18:49:03
Daniel Klink Glad you found it and welcome JAmes
13. June at 20:39:53
Daniel Klink 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
Daniel Klink A lot of sanding and filling with the resin parts is required - as i feared....
3. July at 17:20:19
Nathan Dempsey Interesting subject Daniel. Looks great so far. Keep up the good work!
3. July at 17:29:28
Daniel Klink Thank you Nathan...i will do my best... but look at this mess :)
4. July at 13:01:16
Martin Oostrom Another Japanese never-heard-of-this-plane build? By DK? I'm in
4. July at 15:16:11
Soeren . Count me in ;)
4. July at 15:18:11
Daniel Klink 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
Daniel Klink 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
James C Despite the challenges, you appear to be making some great progress
4. July at 19:14:03
Daniel Klink 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.
5. July at 10:26:35
Stephan Ryll Comming along nicely Daniel :)
5. July at 11:02:54
Roberto Rocat Love it. Following :)
5. July at 19:38:59
Daniel Klink 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
Daniel Klink While spraying is out of question anyway continued masking and preparing the surface...
7. July at 14:31:59
Slavo Hazucha 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
Daniel Klink 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
Daniel Klink Compi is fixed
9. July at 12:55:12
Bart Goesaert 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
Nathan Dempsey 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
Daniel Klink 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

10. July at 18:12:13
Daniel Klink Thank you Murad and Guy much appreciated mates
First thin layer of IJA Khaki Brown
11. July at 13:29:01
Slavo Hazucha 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
Daniel Klink 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
Bart Goesaert Looking good, don't know whether it is still a small step shining through at the nose...
11. July at 13:51:55
Daniel Klink Hi Bart, thank you and do you mean the shadow in front in the last pic?
11. July at 14:05:30
Bart Goesaert Yes, it can be putty/primer shining through also...
11. July at 14:11:13

Daniel Klink 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.

20. July at 19:42:16
Daniel Klink 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.
