  1. Morning all, thought I'd post the next major project. The Border Model Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.J Late with full upgrades by Voyager and Eduard. Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.J LateBorder Model | No. BT-008 Voyager Model No. PE351142 Panzer IV Series Fenders Dragon 60xx Series~Voyager Model | No. PE35187 Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.J (Last Production) Basic Set (For DRAGON 6575) Voyager Model | No. PE35458 I got this set as it has a couple of details that didn't come with the specific Voyager set above. German WW2 PzKw III & PzKw-Ⅳ later period - B metal trackR Model | No. 35041 Schurzen mesh Pz.IV Ausf. J Tamiya Eduard | No. 35595 Some of the sets are not specific to Border, but I don't think it will make any difference. I'll let you know through the build. Going to make a better effort for photos of progress than of late. Might look at adding the barrel option if I can find one, if the kit barrel doesn't. Have to say, finding anything there days is getting tough. Seems all UK sellers are not on the distribution list of many suppliers. So off back to the Marder IIIM rebuild until all this arrives.
  2. Hello modeller friends, As I’m currently building a B5N2 Kate model, I wonder about the use of the 3 oxygen bottles located on the port side of the observer’s station. Are they related to the torpedo operation or something else? Were they present in which ever mission, torpedoeing or bombing? Which colour were the bottles? I searched the internet with no result and hope that you can help me in that matter. Thank you, Cheers, Quang
  3. Good day to everyone here, I do hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas. Before the New Year starts off, I would like to show off Border's new B5N2 in the 1/35 scale, seeing as I believe I am one of the first to get my hands on it. (As for why it is in this section, I cannot make a post in the 'Reviews' area - and I will be building this beauty anyway). Starting off with the cardboard package... ..out comes the box top which itself is magnificent, displaying some of the best artwork of any new kit I have seen this year, with B5N2s going for torpedo runs at Pearl Harbour. The sides of the box... And the first look inside - quite jam packed! All of the sprues laid out... And now each of them close-up - in alphabetical order: A, wing top sections and the lower fuselage: B, fuselage sides and elevators: C, lower wing parts and propeller: D, cockpit pieces and upper fuselage: E, engine and cowling: F, undercarriage and assorted details: G, Type 91 modification 2 (special Pearl Harbor version) aerial torpedo: H, Type 91 aerial torpedo: I, canopy and other clear parts: J, the Type 99 No.80 Mk 5 AP bomb used to destroy the Arizona: And K, cockpit details: The decals: The P.E, which amounts to seatbelts and fine details: And finally, the Instructions, with some nice history and part diagrams. As a whole, the kit is very, very comprehensive. The level of detailing on the individual parts is fantastic, the raised riveting is all uniform and the clear parts are perfectly clear and blemish-free. Interestingly, the fuselage is constructed by mating the sides and the the top and bottom, perhaps to mask any gaps that might arise from a traditional joint. The fabric detail on the control surfaces is relatively deep, but looks good. Noteworthy is the lack of an option for the 6 x 60kg bombs or the 1 800kg bomb, but I suspect we might see those in future releases, maybe a B5N1? The detail is especially good on the Type 92 machine gun used by the gunner: And the Sidewall detail for the Cockpit: One of the more notable bits about this kit is the 'stressed skin' effect on the wings and lower fuselage, as shown: It will be interesting to see how this comes out under a coat of paint. The final part are the schemes, which follow: If I am not mistaken, I believe that both of these aircraft are from Akagi, but the decals provided should allow for a 'DIY' approach to the schemes, with enough coding to build a variety of aircraft. Note that the scheme for AI-311 is different on the Box, perhaps a late change. All in all, I would say this kit has definitely been worth the wait. Even though it is slightly odd in scale compared to the rest of the 1/32 riffraff, it still looks like it will build up magnificently out of the box. I understand that my camera and photography skills are lackluster, so if any of you would like some better images of certain bits and bobs than I will be happy to oblige. Sincerely, Hurricaneflyer
  4. Hi All No way I can find space for the full kit, so this'll have to do. Its WnW heritage is obvious, with quality and detail at least matching Tamiya's Mosquito. Shame that there is no way of displaying the interior though as the double-skinned fuselage means a clear section (as per HKM's otherwise vastly inferior version) isn't feasible. Photos will have to do instead. Only problems I encountered were that the instructions are a little vague in places as to the the locations of some minor fittings, and the decals are the thinnest I've ever come across - while usually a good thing, it meant that the larger ones were prone to curl and stretch, hence the wavy lines of bombs on the mission tally; and I completely destroyed the one of the "Phantom of the Ruhr" text which meant I had to hand paint it instead. The duplicated flight deck in the foreground is my own resin cast of the Border one with a heavily modified/scratch built seat, which I'm going to use to try to bring the HKM version a little closer to representing the actual thing: Thanks for looking, J.A.
