Irritated, yes!  And annoyed at myself for making such a schoolboy error.  It's not that I need them right away, I have to finish a little fun project I'm working on, then I have an Eduard Hellcat to do, since the box has been squeezed out of my stash, and after that I have a 1/16 dragster lined up for a group build over on the Flory Models forum.  So it'll be about five to six weeks still before I can start the Renzan.  It's still bloody annoying, though!

well, I have a saying--"at least nobody died". I did that same error before when I wanted a pilot figure for a helicopter. I was so angry with myself I NEVER built the helo! When you've been all over online and you finally find a part you need, your concentration fails you and you jump on the order. Then when the WRONG part arrives in the mail--B O O M. So disappointing! You sound like someone who likes precision and to have everything set and ready to go. No worries. At least you have the other projects to keep you plenty busy. Stay with us and good luck with your other projects!

I do like to plan ahead, that is true!  And the way things are shaping up, I'll probably end up paying more for aftermarket stuff than I did for the kit itself!

Ive done that before for sure. I spent $30 on a FREE kit someone gave me that was molded in 1956!

Nice to see that I might not be the only one building a Jap plane :)

The great thing about Jap planes is that you can usually have fun going to town weathering them, since their paint was pretty awful.  Have a look at my Raiden to see what I mean.

In this case, however, the Renzan is only a prototype, so wouldn't have got a lot of flying hours in, so she'll only get some light wearing done to her.

Just a couple of other builds to finish off, then I'll be ploughing into it!

Kit'n'Kaboodle that's a nice plane 👍 but what did you use for the weathering and how did you do it? Cheers :)

After primer, I sprayed the whole model with Vallejo acrylic aluminium.  Then I sprayed it with Klear, (You may know it as Future?  It's actually a floor polish.) but any tough coat of clear lacquer would do.  I have just watched a video about the hairspray technique, which seems about the same thing.  Then I pre-shade and apply the top camo paint as usual.  The Klear is pretty tough but the top coat is fairly soft, so I use a cocktail stick to gently scrape the paint away, revealing the aluminium colour underneath.  Don't press too hard and the Klear will stop you going all the way through.  Stick to the edges and corners of panel lines, as these are natural edges where the wind, rail and elements can get under.  The leading edges of the wings take a hammering, too, and the wing roots where the pilot and ground crew scuff it all up can be scratched in a random pattern. 

You can see it better in my build thread here.

Google is your friend!  Whatever the subject, go on Google images and put, for example, Ki-61 blueprint, and this list appears.

https://www.google.com/search?q=Ki-61+blueprint&rlz=1C1CHBF_en-GBGB789GB789&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=W0Et5qHbDxDZbM%253A%252CItFRgFv9VAx9oM%252C_&usg=AI4_-kTdP0bsfjdhemJodB6UwjPTFcDcPA&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj6taL9iIfgAhX7RhUIHQOaDc8Q9QEwAHoECAEQBA#imgrc=_

Then download it and Robert's your relative!
