Hasegawa Ki-84 Chinese Nationalist Forces - finally there…..complete

Recommended Posts

Why was this moved from the Group Build? It seems like it would fit.

 

Because Sinuhe realised it was way past the 25% finished limit and asked me to move it.

Anyhow, the Xmas holidays really allowed me some time off for modelling…… amazing how fast progress is then.

 

Masks were drawn and cut using a Silhouette Portrait mat cutter

This really is a very useful tool for LSP modellers.

After that I did the yellow leading edges, adding some more chipping using a Maskol like solution

Thanks Kev - the Silhouette is a great tool - and at the price of a modern 1/32 kit - it is something I don't want to miss anymore!

I wish somebody would re-release the Alps/OKI set of printer again!

Terrific project and the weathering is superb. Wish I had the know how and talent to make my own masks but at this stage of the game, doesn't look likely.

The Ki-84 is looking simply surpurb

Keep 'em coming

Thanks Peter - actually making masks is really not that difficult - provided you stick to simple designs…. I'll leave the more complex ones to experts.

This kit is a lot of firsts for me - yesterday I tried out a Flory wash - and was really impressed!

This afternoon, I had my favourite chore - masking canopies - forgot to busy a AM set…...

 

Well that's about it, final update before it is finished.
