  1. Hi Everyone, Hope you don`t mind me sharing some pic`s of my latest effort, Hasegawas 1/48 scale C6N1 Saiun or Myrt Completed as the second option in the box, an aircraft of: 4th Recon Squadron, 343rd Naval Flying Group Which I chose because it hasn`t got the black cowl and nose that you usually see. Built 99% OOB, with just some seat belts, brake pipes and aerial wire added The base is an Eduard Japanese Carrier Section, that you just paint up and add the lights to Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking Cheers Russ
  2. Hi All, Thought it was about time that I attempted an early `Grey` Zero for my collection. So here`s my attempt at Hasegawas 1/48 Zero from the `Rabaul` boxing Built almost completely OOB with just: brake pipes and seat straps added. After much searching for colours tried mixing my own as references varied, ie; not quite grey, not quite white, not quite light caramel. Which sort of goes with the background; not quite Rabaul Anyway whatever colour they were, I hope you enjoy. Thanks for looking,Cheers Russ
  3. Howdy all, on a roll with two completions in 7 days, so here`s some pic`s of number two: Hasegawas 1/48 Val dive bomber In the markings of an aircraft from No 1 AC. 21st Section 1st Squadron, Aircraft Carrier Soryu............. 8th December 1941, Pearl Harbour Built 99.5% OOB, only additions being some seat belts and aerial wire The dreaded Hasegawa decals behaved quite well on this one, with only a bit of silvering on the fuselage stripes although I did cut them into two bits to get them onto the tail fillet. Hope you enjoy looking at Cheers Russ
  4. Hi Everyone, Just completed my Fine Molds 1/48 D4Y2 Suisei (Comet) or Judy Finished in the markings of 523rd kokutai, based at Tinian Island, Northern Marianas, 1944 Built OOB with just aerial wire added Been after one of these at a reasonable price for years and managed finally at the Hinckley Show in March this year Was a bit surprised to find lots of cast metal parts in the box but they hardly needed any clean up and fitted perfectly. Here`s two shots of it with my previous Judy build from the same manufacturer Which was the D4Y4 Radial engined version. Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking Cheers Russ
  5. Hi all, Just thought I`d show you some pic`s of my latest effort; Tamiyas Gekko, late production version With the first pic in its natural element (well it was so overcast when I took the pic it passed for night ) Done in the 2nd option kit markings; 322nd Naval Fighter Group, 804th Fighter Squadron, KatoriBase, 1944 Only added some seat belts, wiring harness, antenna wire, brake pipes and drilled the gun barrels out, otherwise its as Mr Tamiya intended Got to be one of the best fitting kits ever, despite the use of some inserts that could have been a pain Hope you enjoy seeing it as much as I enjoyed building it Thanks for looking,Cheers Russ
  6. Hi all, just thought I`d show you my 1/48 Hasegawa B5N2 with my attempt at the camouflage pattern worn by the aircraft operating from the carrier Soryu on the 7th December 1941 against Pearl Harbour I normally dread Hasegawa decals but these went on trouble free using Klear as a setting agent Mostly OOB with just a few bits of wire and homemade seat straps hope you enjoy Thanks for looking Cheers Russ
