Exellent job 👍really is, i dont do much large scale stuff, but when i see others do it well, as here ,it makes me want to do a bit more

I really can recommend this kit. It is wise, though, to do some research for colors and in some places for details. Also there are a couple of ejection marks in awkward places.

Fabulous cockpit.  I don’t do large scale for space and budget limitations and because I like to have a range of markings and colour schemes in my collection, but I really enjoy seeing this level of detail.

Thanks fellows. I generally prefer large scale models, exactly because the level of details that can be added /seen. 😁

Well , this took quite an unexpected turn.  I botched up a paint job and tried to strip the paint with cleaner of the same manufacturer.  This ate away the plastic 😮

Later I learned that the cleaner contains acetone 😬

I'll have to order new parts from Zoukei-Mura. Not sure if I manage to complete this project in time, therefore!

Great shame about the melted plastic.

Yeah. Although people tell me it is a great product, and it might be so, I never will use again. BTW it is ALCLAD.

 

The shipping of the new parts takes 2 weeks, from Japan...

While waiting for the replacement parts to arrive from Japan, I managed to make some progression on the Pony...

The bottomside of the wings. Gear and doors will not be added till after both the wings and the fuselage have been mated....

 

 712385-36520-58.jpg

The top side of the wings: the left side will be left open as it is now, while the right side will be closed as it is now. Only the loading hatches will be added.

 

712383-36520-57.jpg

The right side of the fuselage. Once again, this side will be closed up, but I cannot go further tille the replacement  parts will be received.

 

712384-36520-42.jpg

The left side of the fuselage... Ths side will also be left opened up.

Today, I mated the fuselage to the wings. That wasn't as easy as I would have thought, since the outside shell makes it hard to get a positive connection. I actually had to do it twice, shaving off the connection pins. Looks ok to me now.

Masking, masking and more masking...

Yet, all this masking served one purpose only! 

Behold the Pony in it's base colours. While not 100% perfect, I am still rather satisfied....

After a couple of months hard work, I can call this beautifull kit finished. 
Maybe somegroundworks will be added in the future, together with a pilot figure, but the plane is done.
Allas, something went wrong, because of which the front part of the canopy has become claudy.Since there is nothing to be done about that, I have no choice as to leave it like this.
I hope you like it nevertheles...
