J7W1 Shinden (Hasegawa 1/48)

  • Hello folks,

    Its been a long time since i did not post on this forum.

    I'm actually trying to finish the detailling process of this japanese WWII prototype before starting with painting/weathering steps that I enjoy the most. Rescribing/riveting and new details from scratch are made with help of the recent Zoukei Moura model in 1/32 (using precisely its instructions sheet found on the Net).

    Pics are in logical order :

    Bye for now,


    Actual state :

    Rebuilding the landing gear area :

    What it's supposed to be after, according to the big recent Zoukei Moura model :

    Some details, among many to add from your own

    The seat :

    The landing gear inner doors :

    The internal wing wiring :

    Rebuilding the main undeccariage whell wells make that you have to scratch a complet new engine :

    Actually its not finished. Exhausts are missing :

    That's all for now !

  • Now this is some excellent work!  As Rick said, especially the gear bays- WOW!  If it turns out anywhere nearly as good as your Corsair, we're in for a real treat.



  • That's some frickin awesome work. Can't say I've seen many of these guys built up, so I'll be watching with interest.



  • Kullervo do you own the 1/32 shinden by Zoukei Moura as well?

    The flying hamster of doom rains coconuts on your pitiful city!!!!
  • That is truly stunning.

    Looking forward to seeing more of that.

  • Whatever happened to this build?

  • I'd like to see more, too.

    I'm also wondering about references.  I'm doing a quick build of the Hasegawa 1:72 Shinden, but would love to try adding detail to a larger kit someday if I could get more info.


  • Fantastic work you've done. It really brings out the depth seen only in the actual aircraft. It will be worth writing an article for publication. very educational for modeling enthusiasts. A project like this takes a lot of energy, I hope you will continue to the finish.

  • kullervo

    This thread is over 2 years old and wonder if you ever completed your project. I saw the 1/48 and 1/32 Zoukei Moura models at the 2012 IPMS Nats and they looked awesome!

  • Hello !!!

    Of course that i'll finish it, but unfortunately some models to build for some customers stopped the project these two years; I'll post as soon as possible new pics...

    Thanks !!!!!!!!


  • Yeah, I too would love to see how she comes out, amazing work!

    Just because no one understands you- it doesn't make you an artist!

  • Wow...and I thought Vance was slow...
