  1. This model represents an aircraft of the 343rd Fighter Group, flown by Leading Airman Ikuji Matsumura. A very nice kit. I added the RB Model Brass 20mm Japanese cannons Type 99 Mk. 2. I bought these for the soul reason that they were on sale dirt cheap. I used Uschi van Rosten rigging thread (0.02mm) for the antenna wires. This is the ultra fine size meant for 1:72 rigging but I think it is more to scale for 1:48 antenna. I painted the innards Tamiya XF-58 Olive Green lightened with XF-4 Yellow Green. Camo was done with Tamiya XF-11: J.N. Green over XF-16: Flat Aluminum. This is the first time that I’ve tried the hair spray chipping method, a work in progress shall we say. This is also my first attempt with Tamiya Panel Line Accent Color: Dark Brown. Again…a work in progress. I used the kit decals save for the fuselage stripe which I painted on
  2. Hello! Here is my Hasegawa 1:72 Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden-Kai (Early) which I built back in 2008. It represents 343-45, of the 343 Kokutai, 701 Hikotai, Imperial Japanese Navy Air Force, flown by First Lt Takashi Oshibuchi, from Kanoya Naval Air Base, Kyushu, Japan, April 1945. The kit was built mostly OOB. I just added some details in the cockpit. It was completely painted and varnished by brush. I had some problems with the decals partially of my own making, in particular the hinomaru which I ended up having to remove and replace with those from another sheet. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome Miguel
  3. Hasegawa is to release in October 2013 a brand new tool 1/32nd Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden-kai "George" kit. Sources: http://www.hlj.com/product/HSGST33/Air http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10242229 V.P.
