Kawanishi N1K1 (1/72)

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

in case you haven't been following the recent Floatplanes and Flying boats GB, I present to you my entry to this very enjoyable GB: Hasegawa's N1K1 Kyofu (Rex) in 1/72.

It is a very nice kit and I made only a few modifications:

  • the engine exhausts were replaced by brass tube
  • the plastic pitot tube was replaced my Albion Alloy tubes (it doesn't necessarily look better this way, but it is not as likely to break!)
  • I experimented with the stressed skin-effect. It turned out be a bit heavy on the rear fuselage, but given the fact that is was my first try, I am quite satisfied.

Never seen one of these before. Really nice build, the paintwork looks excellent!

Nicely done. I followed the build & was impressed then, still am, the stressed skin look is marvellously effective. 👍
