  1. Hi, Looks good on Hinomaru!! They used a higher grade of paint for Hinomaru red so you don't see the much chipping on the Hinomaru. Nicely done!! Regards, Matsu.
  2. Hi, Nice recovery and good see you back on the track!! BTW Can you show us what kind dress she goes to show off ? Regards, Matsu.
  3. Really nice and clean work well done Regards, Matsu.
  4. Hi, Dennis good see you back !! I was hoping my post was not interrupting your thread... I really like dark green you used on her and looks good on late Japanese naval AC. BTW, I was researching some more 343 ku and friend of mine in Japan told me there are some more pictures other than I posted, When they are training at Matsuyama 松山. BUT those pictures have never been published I've been living in my backyard lately, but not fun as modeling Regards, Matsu.
  5. Hi, Another great thread going on here about zero! Regards, Matsu.
  6. Hi, 1 飛行隊長 Flight captain 2 中隊長 Company commander 3小隊長 Platoon leader Regards, Matsu.
  7. Hi, Dennis and Miloslav, Sugita Shoiti (杉田 庄一) was sharing the 343-11 with Kanno Naoshi (菅野 直) and Matsumura Seiji (松村正二) Here is a list of 301Hikoutai A/C and Pilot name assign to each A/C They never designate the same number to 2 A/C, If so it will be so confusing to pilot ground crew and book keep. I don't know where the Montex got the idea of these schemes from. They are totally fictional !! Only picture proof we have shidenkai with any type of form or color of stripes on shidenkai
  8. Hi, A 343-11 was 1 of the 3 other Shidenkais Kanno flight with and 2 other pilots where flight with A 343-11 also Regards, Matsu.
  9. Hi, Dennis I hope I'm not too late, I believe a Diagonal double yellow band behind the cockpit is 301 hikoutai (Squadron) Captain Naoshi Kanno's A 343-15 only (KIA Aug 1 1945 2week before the end of war) Also I find profile of A 343-11. Sorry, not so clear I'll look for some more detail of A 343-11 and let you know if I find. Regards, Matsu.
  10. Looks great, Dennis!very nice build and coming together really nicely.  Regards, Matsu
  11. I agree with Mike said about the cones, They are anti-vibration (sway) cones. I also have seen on Bf109, Bf110 and He111 too. Superb work on old kit! I really like it! Regards, Matsu.
  12. Have lots of fans. Your English is much better than mine Regards, Matsu.
  13. Hi, I have not tried yet, but I heard some of modeler using the ultrasonic cleaner to remove grime and debris and most of them are satisfied with that, commonly they are using cleaner with 40KHz one for plastic model. Since you are adding rivets on most of your models, I thought you might like to consider. Regards, Matsu.
  14. Hi, Some pics I took from SNASM years ago. Close up of propeller hub, have an antifreeze tube (RED) for each propeller, and some more Regards, Matsu.
  15. Hi, Most (maybe all) of He162 have recycle landing gear from Bf109 G and K. Here is interesting video of He162 landing gear test. Regards, Matsu.
