A5M4 Claude from Special Hobby, 1:32

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm presenting my Special Hobby's A5M4 Claude in 1:32 scale - model represents the machine from Soryu carrier, pilot PO1/c Matsuo Hagiri, summer 1939. The kit contains numerous resin and PE parts, so I did not use any other aftermarkets. Painting was done using Mr. Hobby Super Metallic metalizers and acrylics.

Hope you enjoy!

Wow - that's some finish! What a super looking job you've made of that. It looks like just the right amount of sheen on it too - something I constantly struggle with.

Cheers,

Roger

Thanx! It was my first attempt to do such metal coat. Simply used SM01 from gunze on Gloss Black primer and the result surprised me. Positivelly ;) Great paints!

That is a stunning looking build.

I've always liked the look of the Specialhobby kit, how was the build?

Thanx!

It is not bad kit, but some areas require more attention. I had same problems with fitting cockpit and wings. Thick wing edges are also problem, as typically in short runs.
