  4. Nakajima Ki-43-III Ko Hayabusa "Ultimate Oscar" 1:72 Special Hobby The Nakajima Ki-43 Otsu Hayabusa, known to the Allies as the 'Oscar' was a single-seat, single-engined fighter which equipped the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force from 1941 until the end of the War. The design utilised the same 14-cylinder Nakajima Sakae radial engine as the infamous Mitsubishi Zero, and in fact in the heat of battle, the two aircraft were often confused by Allied aviators. Just like the Zero, the Hayabusa was light, nimble and exceptionally manoeuvrable, and just like th

  6. I give you my last completed project. Nakajima Ki43-I Oscar. I worked the plane he was flying on major Kinshiro Takeda, Indo-China in 1942. The model is very good to work and I recommend it. Here are pictures, enjoy.
  7. With our eternal thanks to the ever patient and obliging Nick Millman, we have updated our ACJ17 Nakajima "Ame Iro" colour, which for a while has been known to be a bit too dark and a bit too saturated. The out going ACJ17 wasn't too bad, but a bit too stark. It's measured colour values render in RGB like this: With more representative values provided by Nick, the Nakajima colour should (and now does :)) look a little lighter and washed out compared to the old colour: The updated colour has been manufactured, and over the next week or so will be
  8. Hasegawa's (actually Mania's) Ki-27 must be almost as old as the original plane by now. It's still a nice kit though, like most Mania re-issues (I'm a fan of their Kate). My boxing is from the early 80s and was missing the decals, but this was not a problem on this build. This is a companion build to my earlier Dutch East Indies MLD PBY-5 Catalina, report here. Catalina Y-63 was commanded by my great-uncle Willem Ditmar, and I found out that a number of Ki-27s were likely responsible for shooting it down. A perfect excuse to build one! I received a lot of useful information from Nick Mill

  10. Nakajima E8N1 Dave detail Set Eduard 1:48 The Hasegawa 1:48 Nakajima E8N1has been out for a little while now, originally released in 2015, although one with new decals has been released this year. This is what has probably prompted Eduard to issue an etch set for it. Detail Set (49771) This single sheet set, whilst not particularly large, contains quite a few parts to give the finished model a boost. Etched in what looks like a stainless steel sheet, some of the parts are pre-painted, but the majority are not. Included on the sheet are a full set of seatbelts, the engine electrical harn
  11. Hello everyone! This is what I have recently finished. An absolutely oob new Airfix Nakajima B5N2. There is nothing really special about this built, it went together pretty well and generally was fun to build
  12. This is my most recent completion, Sword's Ki-84. I like the Frank a lot, it has clean lines and good looks, a true fighter aircraft. Some years ago I built Hasegawa's excellent but dated kit, and I've been looking for an opportunity to build another one. When I came across Sword's pre-production version (I believe the c variant), I had to have it. Sword's kit is a popular candidate for best short run kit in these great 'What is the best xx-scale kit?' topics. As such I was curious to see how well it built. I found it to be a typical modern short run kit - nice detail, good use of resin par
  13. Nieuport NiD 29 / Nakajima KO-4 1:72 Azur FRROM The Nieuport NiD-29 C1 is a fighter designed br by Gustave Delage in 1918. WWI ended before it was produced. In 1920 it was selected as new fighter by the French Aéronautique Militaire and the delivery to the units started in 1922. 700 of this aircraft were produced. In 1925 the French Aéronautique Militaire had 25 NiD-29-equipped squadrons. Several aircraft fitted with bomb-racks took part in low-level assault tasks in North Morocco at the end of 1925. The Nieuports remained in service with France till the end of the 20s. Aircraft were a

Next is recce plane, extremly elegant design IMHO - Nakajima C6N1 Saiun (in aliies code - "Myrt") Model is made out of Fujimi perfect kit - OOB except the markings as usually. The machine is from 762 Kokutai, 11 Rec. Hikotai, Kiushiu, April 1945. Comments welcome Cheers Jerzy-Wojtek
  15. This is Trumpeter’s 1/24 Nakajima A6M2-N “Rufe” Floatplane. This has been on my shelf of doom for about 5 years for a very pitiful reason; I needed to get some weights to put in the main float and I didn’t have any. I put this aside meaning to get some weights, a couple of weeks went by and then I forgot about it. Sheesh, what a dunderhead am I! My goal is to clear out my shelf/shelves of doom by May 2015; a daunting task if you only knew how large a shelf it is. This is one off of the list. It is mainly an OOB build; the build thread is here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php
  16. To prove I wasn’t kidding about trying to eliminate my shelf of doom here is the Trumpeter Nakajima A6M2-N “Rufe” Floatplane. I know I started a new build when I publically stated my goal was to only eliminate the shelf of doom, but sometimes you just gotta build something you want to build. These kits were on the shelf of doom for a reason. A brief history of this kit. I got it when it went on sale about 7 or 8 years ago. I began construction probably within the year I obtained it. Now I know it has some shape problems regarding the rear of the fuselage, but at the time I began it m
  17. Nakajima Ki-84 Type 4 Fighter Hayate (Frank) 1:48 Hasegawa History "Forget it - it's a Frank." It is said that this comment was made frequently by USAAF personnel watching radar screens on Okinawa in the closing weeks of the Pacific War. It was customary to watch for a contact to appear and then to scramble P-51 Mustangs to intercept the enemy aircraft. But when the blip was moving so fast that it was inferred to be one of the advanced new Japanese Hayate fighters it would be assumed that the P-51s would stand no chance of catching the intruder. Generally regarded as the best Japane
  18. Build 5 I love 1/144, but it's sometimes hard to find unusual subjects in this scale without resorting to expensive resin or poor quality short run injection kits. So occasionally (when I find a bargain) I pick up the odd F-Toys, J-Wings or Cafereo models. These models come ready painted and usually have some of the marking already applied. Luckily this one has a full decal sheet and no markings, which saves me having to scavenge through the spares box. It's going to get a full paint strip, clean up of parts, rebuild and spray job. So with the exception of stripping it, it just like bui
  19. The latest batch of Sword kits have arrived and are ready to buy from our website! There are 2 different versions of the Douglas Skynight priced at £15.00 and the recce version of the Nakajima C6N Saiun (Myrt). Don't forget we got the night fighter version of the Nakajima C6N in a few weeks ago, both C6N's are priced at £13.25. http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/sword-172--kits-142-c.asp thanks Mike

  21. Bought this cheap on eBay and was surprised how small it was compared to other aircraft I have in this scale. After disassembly, I stripped the paint and once it was back to plastic started the build. Painting the cockpit was quick and easy and having finished that I started assembly. No real problems apart from a small step front & rear engine nacelle/wing join, a little plastic card sorted that out. Had to remove the two lugs from inside the canopy so a fair bit of polishing went on to bring it back to clear, not that you can see much inside on this scale. Brush painted with Reve
  22. This is one of my latest models. This is a kit I avoided during a long time because it looked too similar to the Tojo, George, etc. But finally, and as I am running out of different models to build, I ended up buying it. I got the old "super-rivetted" Revell version, which makes it look something american, with so many rivets. I decided for this bronze-brown camouflage, as it escapes from the usual japo green that bores me so much. The kanjis on the fuselage have been hand-painted. What I like from this model is the sensation of sturdyness it has, and the door to show the motor is very welc
