Well, I have always had a soft spot for Japanese aircrafts!

 

The first LSP Jap plane I ever built was the old Revell Raiden. waaay back in the -70´s!

 

I "rebuilt" the Jack not long ago, now with the new Hasegawa kit;

Love this aircraft, and I have several more to build!

The J2M is on my "short list" of kits to acquire, and I really wish Hasegawa would redo the Ki-43.

Hi all!

 

 

Time to get the lid off the kit and start building!

I don´t have a lot of AM stuff, simply because there´s not much.

 

Some etch from Eduard, this is also a â€jurassic†set, not pre-painted and with acetate backing on the instrument panel.

Cockpit almost done, not that many parts, but Eduard give some added detail.

The acetate backing for the IP painted white on the backside.

Engine cylinders and crankcases cleaned from moldseams and painted with Alclad steel and aluminium.

This is the plane I will build (the silver bird), and I´ll use a set of Montex masks.
