Roy,

 

Beautiful Frances, well worth the work you put in.

 

I wish there was a 1/48 model, èlas, I'm afright I have to scratch one. 

 

But I still figuring how to make that glass nose....

 

Thanks for sharing your build 👍

 

Cheers,

JohnHaa

Very nice. Delightful to see another type, originating within and from efforts of the hard pressed aviation industry in the dying days Dai Nippon Teikoku.

Thanks for your reactions fellows!

 

@JohnHaa best way to make a glass nose like that is probably vacuforming. It's not that hard, I think I showed how I do it in my Dornier 17 topic. 

 

@Bigglesof266 it was a delight to try something out of my comfort zone.. that also applies to the oil canning effect. 

 

I realise I have not shown that too well on the above photos. Here a close-up:

Beautiful job!  Nice looking plane too - like many IJN and IJAF aircraft tended to be.

Great work on this Ginga. Your work and the pictures highlight another elegant eye-pleasing Japanese design. What did make you choose this colour for the prop spinners?

Cheers, Michael

Excellent work. I have to agree the airplane is a very graceful design.

Beautiful job on a plane we don't often see.  I have to agree with others, we really could use a 1/48 version of this plane.  In fact there are a whole slew of great Japanese planes that have never made it into 1/48 kits.  Am I imagining this or is It only Ukrainian kit companies that have need issuing new kits recently of Japanese planes (which seems odd but very welcome)?

What a beauty I really like the looks of the Japanese twin engine jobs.  Pilots view when landing cant have been good though the cockpit is a long way aft and the engines are in the way for side vision.
