Excellent work. It feels like this one came together so quickly. I think I’ll be working on the Ki84 after all. 

Thanks Sean!  Hasegawa always does a great job with Japanese subjects and I've heard that the Ki-84 kit is a good one.  So it should be enjoyable for you to build and for us to watch!

WOW!!  Beautiful.  You started this project over a year ago.  How time flies.  

Lot of stop and go on this project but it looks like it is approaching the finish line.  Yes, time flies, especially for us old dudes.

Beautiful work mate! I just love your builds!

Very nice!



Ps. Do you sell your builds or, do you display them at home? Would love to see how you display your builds. 

Thank you, Alan!  Almost all of my 1/32 work is per commission.  But I currently have a backlog of builds that I've yet to mail out.  Those are kept in a dust-proof cabinet until its time to ship.

been following this and it’s really looking cool!

i like the thinned black/brown spray approach though personally I would be a bit apprehensive of spraying on too much, but I guess once you have airbrush technique nailed it’s ok

i also like the buffing / gentle sanding for additional effects - I will definitely be trying that!

thanks as always for sharing your builds here


Thanks, Nick! I appreciate the opportunity to share and post here at LSP very much.

It's rounding the final corner, and it looks like another winner from you.  Always enjoy following your build process John





Thanks, Matt!


Rolling toward completion, slowly but surely.  The landing gear legs have been glued into place.




After the glue dries and legs are solidly in place, I attach the wheels with 2-part epoxy (JB Kwik Weld).



The epoxy gives me time to orient the flat spot of the tires onto the ground.



The covers for the landing gear and the inner wheel well doors are glued on next




The Hien is on her own legs.  Only a few more bits and pieces to add.  The next update will probably be an RFI!
