  1. Decided that the next challenge should be an old kit, one with raised panel lines that needed a full engraving and riveting job done on it; chickening out on old Monogram B-24 & B-26 kits as I wanted a quicker build, out came this old Hasegawa kit; this still hasn't been a quick build: too much work and trying to slowly pack up the house ahead of a move in the new year. Overall this is a surprisingly good kit, yes the detail is not up to modern standards, but the fit is very good, making for a simple, fast build. The only challenge is the one I set myself. I didn't add much to
  2. Hello guys, here's my latest build, Hasegawa's 1:48 J7W1. The original box of this kit was for the jet version J7W2, but I wanted to have another J7W1, so I used the propeller that came with the kit. The name Shinden means "Magnificent Lightning" when translated, so the decals are really appropriate for this aircraft.
  3. Hello guys, here's my next model, Hasegawa's Shinden in 48th scale. I'll be building it as the propeller pushed J7W1 instead of the jet powered J7W2, but I'll add the underneath fuel tank.
  4. Finished the Shinden yesterday, and I can say that this model has aged nicely, almost no flash, crisp raised panel lines and good fit overall. Since the real aircraft only made three flights before World War Two´s end, I decided I could go the IJN 46 route and paint it with some ace pilot markings, such as the yellow engine intakes and the band in front of the cockpit. Other than that, I didn´t deviate too much from the standard IJN camouflage scheme of green over (white) grey. And yes, I know I missed to paint the yellow leading edge bands until they met the fuselage. The decals we
  5. I decided to give Flickr for Android a try, since my table is currently occupied by the Shinden. Its pretty bad, it doesn't let me share the images because "there isn't an image for that url." I began the model today, and this is its current state, ready for painting. I decided to leave out the canards until after decaling, putting the aircraft on its gear and adding the propeller assembly, should I need to add more weight in the nose. Hasegawa recommends 1g of weight to be put as forward as possible, but I added a 10g weight and a smaller one ahead of it above the nose gear w
  6. Hi guys, I have never tried what if before, mainly because I was worried about ruining a model. However, having purchased a J7W1 Shinden, I thought that as it only ever flew a couple of times, and schemes are limited to say the least, I would have a go. I understand that the normal starting point is to make a back story, so, with apologies to any colonial members I knocked up the following. Feel free to criticise my attempt at rewriting history. Following the attack on Pearl harbour in December 1941, the previously neutral Americans were drawn in to WWII thirsting for revenge. Thi
  7. My obsession with the amazing imcth "Fine Structure" models has finally run out of steam! I have just finished their Shinden, having previously built the ASM Zero, P51D Mustang and Bf109G. This is my build log http://shindenbuildlog.tumblr.com/ I hope you enjoy it I decided to write my build log in one gigantic burst after finishing the project. I find this is more effective than a "real time' episodic account and is much easier on the author (me) and the reader (you)
