  1. Not going to lie. My mojo is waning on my F-2 trying to get that intake trunk seamless. Tonight it cracked along the joint, again, whilst sanding, so putting it aside for now. Time for this bad boy! Lots of plastic goodness inside! Usual Tamiya quality, with plenty ejector marks to deal with. Decals look surprisingly decent for a Tamiya kit? Will see. And got some resin barrels. Got a mask set on its way, but for the "Early" kit. Pretty sure the canopy remains the same. Also have some Eduard PE belts, hopefully they have some ones I can use on this build. One thing I'm finding interesting is the canopy framing. It's very, very fine by the feel of it. Can barely feel how it's raised like normal if that makes sense? Anyway, found a build on Hyperscale by Gregg Cooper I will be referencing, and I really want to try his method of replicating the Aotake finish.
  2. Hobby 2000 is to rebox the Fujimi 1/72nd Nakajima J1N1 "Gekko" kit. Source: https://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=95825&start=13185#p2473385 - ref. 72053 - Nakajima J1N1-S "Gekko" - early - ref. 72054 - Nakajima J1N1-S "Gekko" - 1945 V.P.
  3. A typical Fujimi model: not many parts, scarce interior details, very simple build and gentle panel lines. Build process went okay, some effort and several styrene strips are needed for the alignment of rear upper fuselage and the upper wing/fuselage joint. MLG interior could use some details, due to its size. Gunze colours were used over Alclad aluminium base. Upper colour is Gunze Nakajima IJN Green, lower surfaces Gunze IJN Gray. National insignia and yellow ID stripes airbrushed. AK weathering oils were used and chipping was done with various colored pencils.
  4. Well, since Januar 2017 I invested many time in my project J1N1-S Gekko. Now it is ready to take off to our next kit event in September 2017 in Berlin-Schönefeld. This model is easy to built, the conversion is simple. Only the picture and drawing was strong to find. All infos to this fact found on this sources
  5. Does Tamiya (or anybody else) make a 1/48 J1N1 Gekko that includes the rear "fairing" in clear, as in the following profiles? http://img.wp.scn.ru/camms/ar/1196/pics/65_21.jpg http://img.wp.scn.ru/camms/ar/1196/pics/65_28.jpg http://img.wp.scn.ru/camms/ar/1196/pics/65_29.jpg I want to do a J1N1-C recce version, and they all had the rear clear canopy. http://www.wardrawings.be/WW2/Images/2-Airplanes/Axis/3-Japan/05-Reconnaissance/J1N1-C/p1.jpg Larry lengesath(AT)cox(DOT)net
