Himiko Water Bus 1/150 Fujimi

Recommended Posts

I present something a little different, a Japanese Water Bus called Himiko, designed by a famous Comic Artist in Japan.

The kit is by Fujimi and is a lovely thing to put together with no fit issues, but be warned it is not for the faint hearted as it comes with a 165 piece mask for the windows.

 

It is hand painted in humbrol enamels, it is probably better suited to being spray painted as i had a number of runs under the mask but such is life LOL

The hardest parts to mask were the hemispherical windows with 6 masks a piece, the smallest being at the front, a mere 4mm in diameter, good fun.

 

So with no further ado here is the Himiko in all her glory;

A little 'left-field' but very appealing and futuristic. I originally thought that this was a fictitious subject until I Googled it. :yes:

Think it's about time we saw another sub from you Chris...

That's brilliant Chris, where the hell did you find that & did they have any more? Himiko water bus sounds much more interesting than Japanese ferry!

cheers,

looks great - shame the Thames Clipper service does not have something as good as this - those sky lights would come in a real treat around London City airport

 

Lovely model all round
