  1. Hi all, thought it was about time I posted something so here's another paper project for your perusal, an unrealized Japanese interceptor/fighter project design. This is Ushi Model's take on the Mitsubishi J4M Senden 'Flashing Lightning' or Navy Experimental 17-Shi Otsu B Type Interceptor Fighter. The aircraft was to be built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries for the Imperial Japanese Navy, and although it d not proceed beyond the design stage, the performance, on paper at least, should have been impressive. Powered by a single Mitsubishi MK9D 18-cyl. two-row fan assisted air-cooled radial piston engine the J4M's top speed would have been around 470mph. The aircraft was given the allied reporting name of 'Luke'. A high-quality resin kit, (so it should be at £50) of an unusual subject combining 3D printed parts and clear resin canopy with traditional resin casting. It'll be interesting to compare it with MikroMir's styrene release which, of course, is slightly cheaper plus they'll be releasing the Sakae turbojet powered version. Ushi Models have released a few very interesting types including the Tachikawa Ki-94-1 'push-me-pull-you' and Beriev's bizarre B10M seaplane with future releases to include the Kogiken Ki-202 (evolved Me-163) and Nakajima Ki-201 (similar to the Me-262). Finished using MRP lacquers, Abteinlung502 and Wilder oils and AK washes. I decided to give it a late-war tatty appearance as worn by many Japanese aircraft in the closing stages of the conflict, using AK's Worn Effects and Chipping fluid. As you can imagine, with its undercarriage arrangement, the thing is a natural tail-sitter and required a LOT of Liquid Gravity stuffed into every space available (what there was of it). It still only just manages to stand up, luckily the gear is made from hard black resin and more than up to the job. This one was built for Airfix Model World and appeared in the May issue. Cheers and thanks for looking, hope it appeals to a few of you. Melchie san
