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 !
That's some very excellent detail work, especially the wheel wells. keep us posted as you progress.
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?
That is truly stunning.
Looking forward to seeing more of that.
Currently on the bench: AZ Models 1/72 Mig 17PF
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.
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!
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...
Yeah, I too would love to see how she comes out, amazing work!
If it's not olive drab... SHOOT IT!!!
Wow...and I thought Vance was slow...
