Great subject! Never seen that aircraft before! Frightening mask set too..!

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 .

OK... getting in on the ground floor for this one.

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.

Glad you found it and welcome JAmes

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... :)

Daniel Klink
A lot of sanding and filling with the resin parts is required - as i feared....

Interesting subject Daniel. Looks great so far. Keep up the good work!
3. July 2019, 17:29
Daniel Klink
Thank you Nathan...i will do my best... but look at this mess :)

Another Japanese never-heard-of-this-plane build? By DK? I'm in

Soeren .
Count me in ;)

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 2019, 15:55
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 2019, 17:19
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.

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 2019, 09:22
Daniel Klink
While spraying is out of question anyway continued masking and preparing the surface...

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 2019, 15:22
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 2019, 15:57
Daniel Klink
Compi is fixed

Bart Goesaert
Nice looking aircraft. Didn't knew it either. Will you do a spaghetti camo (Also known as a Jens camo)?
9. July 2019, 13:45
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 2019, 16:13
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.

Slavo Hazucha
Aaah, that moment when all the color is on a Japanese WWII bird without a scratch... Never to last long... ;)
11. July 2019, 13:32
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 2019, 13:40
Bart Goesaert
Looking good, don't know whether it is still a small step shining through at the nose...
11. July 2019, 13:51
Daniel Klink
Hi Bart, thank you and do you mean the shadow in front in the last pic?
11. July 2019, 14:05

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.

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.
