As expected it is quite a hand full to build, loads of sanding and test fitting, the joys of limited run kits :)

Ah another Kikka Victim.... Following Jan👍
Cool Start btw.. Those pins are cool arent they? 🙂

Jan Peters
They are a royal pain in the*
I have used copious amounts of filler, due to me preparing one wing to improve the fit, and glueing on the other, making gluestains in the process

Following 👍 Kudos to you for taking on this (old-ish) AZ kit! I am kind of 'scared' to eventually tackle my Kikka....and I have the Fine Molds one in 1/48 ;)

Indeed they are, just like the rest of this kit 🙂
But once you got the cockpit into the fuselage and the underwing joint to it, fitted the engines under the wings, glued the Gearwork and the rudders, the rest will do like a charme..🙂
Keep up the good work mate..

@ Sebastian the kit isn't that old, but being a limited run it needs extra work to get it done.
@Daniel, once it is alldone you mean :)

Ah is there the US testcamo incoming?
15. March, 17:20
Jan Peters
No Daniel, it will be the second prototype build by the japanese. It will be finished with some artistic licence, as the pictures I've seen do not show the hinumarus painted on.

Very nice progres on your Kikka Jan! Can't wait to see it finished and in all its glory 👍

Wow! The NMF makes the Kikka look very different....gone is the impression of a scruffy little Schwalbe clone 😛 Well done Jan 👍
