Afternoon!! Well its time to start something new - so here we have Wingsy's new "Claude". For look in the box you can take a shufti at their website ( principally because I've already started the model so didn't take any sprue shots...) http://www.wingsykits.com/product/d5-01-ijn-type-96-carrier-based-fighter-ii-a5m2b-claude-late-version-148/ The Claude has long been a favourite of mine, exhibiting as it does that rather ungainly yet elegant period of early monoplane fighter design of the mid/ late 1930's. And as much as it looks like some sort of Manga-make-believe-crate, it was a very effective combat machine. I was very tempted by Fine Molds lovely A5M4 - especially as it builds so well - as illustrated by Joe's great build - However in the end I settled on this new kit from Ukrainian newcomers Wingsy Kits: And what a splendid little model it is too - with very fine recessed panel lines, delicate moulding, PE parts & film instruments, and a dry fit that suggests a very trouble free build! You would think this was from a Japanese company or perhaps Eduard - it really is that nice. So to that end - here's the, admittedly rather dull, first few pics - mostly showing you the cockpit areas painted with Tamiya XF71 Japanese interior pale grey green. More to come - and it will get less green I promise Jonners
