Very nice Fabian, your detailing is first class mate ! You should definitely get an airbrush, not only does it allow you to be more creative with paint it speeds up,painting large areas no end too.

Also,treat yourself to a Tamiya 1/32 zero you won't regret it I promise, I built one a few years ago (pics are on the ww2 reveals somewhere) it's the best fitting kit I've ever built and a real joy to build

Thanks Pete and Simon, you convinced me to go shopping... didn't really needed a big push :-). Speaking about shopping: planing on doing a diorama and received the first "accessories" today: I present you the Yokosuka MXY-7 Ōka (FineMolds 1/48)



I do realize that the G4M1 Betty I'm building wasn't carrying the Ōka, the G4M2 was. So I'm planning to place the Ōka on the ground, imagining that there is a M2 model right next to it, just outside the diorama, lol.











The plastic is looking great with fine and clear details. I'm looking forward to build this tiny beauty. Maybe starting tonight ;-)

I knew you couldn't resist getting this model. As soon as you mentioned Betty my mind went straight to the Ohka.

Do you know they used to train in them to learn how to fly them. One lesson only!

These were feared and it was a race to shoot down the bombers carrying them ASAP.

The Kamikaze Bomb.


COOL [thumb]

It's a great model Fabian, it's one I've been thinking of getting. Hobbylink are okay, that's good news.

The beauty of this plane (?)/bomb is that there is virtually little in the cockpit.

Crazy idea...you could attach it to the Widow, wouldn't be a tail sitter anymore [rofl]

The wingspan is 52cm (about 20 in???), way to big to settle in my little Amsterdam apartment 0.0
I honestly have no clue what to do with here after the GB. Kenny, how many brothers do you have ;-)
