Tamiya 1/48 scale Hyakushiki Shitei III Kai - Finished
Posted by Ole on Sunday, February 10, 2019 2:47 PM

I completed this one a little while ago. Nothing fancy in terms of upgrades. Actually, only PE seatbelts were added. What is unusual is that the only decal used was for the instrument panel. 

Finished in an overall brown finish with very light wear/chipping.

She's a bit of an "odd Duck" .... but, I like what you have done with her !

Nice job hand painting all the marking's !

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

"That's a Dinah with a nice Linah".  Held to one of the prettiest of the Japanese twin engine airplanes.

Fine model, too.  Well done.

Outstanding...which brown did you use?

Thanks all! The brown is a mix of XF-10 and XF-60 in a 1:1 ratio.

Oh wow beautiful work!!! Heart

 

BTW: And it's a gem of kit too. If anyone wants an easy no-stress build this is a fantastic kit for it.

That is an unusual aircraft, I’ve never seen that plane.  With that said, it is beautifully done.  Great job sir.
