Hi Everyone,

 Hope you don`t mind me sharing some pic`s of my latest effort,

VMZ1X71.jpg

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

O4IE3pJ.jpg

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

Very nice Russ; she's a big bird, the canopy is very, very long.

 

Great paintwork and the base and photography are spot on.

 

:goodjob:

I really like the look of these long, sleek, late-war IJN planes.

Thanks for showing. :goodjob:

Beautiful model Russ. Did you mask that conservatory canopy yourself, if so I'm extra impressed.

Very lovely build! One of my favourite aircrafts. Thought only Tamiya issued this kit long ago in 50scale. I must be very out of date. Looking forward to get one from Hasegawa in 48 scale.

Hi Russ,

 

it sure does make a change from the French Indochina war.

Having said that, the Myrt is one of my favorite Japanese WW2 aircraft, so I have a huge soft spot for it. Great model and I like the faded paint very much.

 

Brilliant as usual.

Cheers

JR
