Japanese Group Build VIII
Posted by Gamera on Monday, November 26, 2018 5:16 PM

Japanese Group Build VIII

Rules

*Start Date January 1, 2019

*End Date December 31, 2019

*Japanese subjects which I'll define as operating under the Japanese flag, aka a captured P-40 flown by a Japanese pilot would be kosher

*Cross-overs are welcome

*Pre-started are fine as long as they're under 10-20% finished (light assemby)

*Any 'roll-over' subjects from JGB VII are welcome

* No cut-off date for entry, you can enter on Dec 30 if you can build the model in a day

And most important have fun guys and gals!

For starters, I'm thinking a 1/72 Hasegawa Betty. I'll get a picture later.

You must mean December 31 as the end date?

Since I haven't started the Betty yet I'll make it my entry for this one.  Tamiya 1/48.

Better put this one back in the mix.  I'll try to get some pictures of the current status, since I failed to finish it in the the last GB

Guys: Great choices, just put you all down! 

 

Jeaton: Thanks! I was doing the whole Cyber Monday thing and thought I'd squeeze this in there. Should have been more careful with my proofreading...

Steve: Gotta love that box art! 

Falcon: Don't sweat it, I'm hoping to barely slip in under the finish line with my own entry...

 

PS:  And sorry guys, with multiple Johns I think going by your callsigns will probably be the best way to keep me from getting confused again.

BTW guys I'm still racking my brain trying to come up with an idea for a badge. I've been thinking of getting my friend Rock Backer to do up another young lady but I can't think of anything beyond that. Anyone have any ideas???

No unless you use some material subject such as airplane, ship, tank, or just the Hinomaru (you can't use the flag, I'm doing that for the Japanese Ship GB, well, a few years from now Wink) a young girl just seems to go with their culture anymore. Ironic.

What about the medal 'Japanese Order of the Rising Sun' - it is considered 8 pointed?

 

 

I found also the Kagome Crest is an eight pointed star, but on it's own looks exactly like the Star of David (Israel)- so is better off used as a background in pattern form?

Jack

I like that Jack, very cool! 

It's just I'd been going with the gal since Baker does great 'girl' art. So I figured I'd do it again, went with her as a pilot twice and a sailor once. Not sure where to go from here - a tanker??? 

I guess we don't have to go with her, I did do the Godzilla one and there are a few other ones in there too.

Cliff, yes definitely continue the girl series of badges.  The medal images I've linked, as well as a possible Kagome pattern, were suggested to be used as a background element.  The 'pinup girl' would still remain as the main focus.

Jack

Thanks Jack, thinking now of just having the gal in a kimono (haven't done that yet) with the Kagome in the background maybe???

 

Funny, I already came up with an idea for JGB IX- a kitsune, the nine-tailed fox...

Kimomo is an excellent choice, very reconizable as Japanese, and the Kagome helps tie in the concept of the number eight.

Sure! Anything Japanese. This if fine, a samurai figure or a Yamaha motorcycle would be fine too! 

You could cross-post over on the Modern Armour GB too if it's okay by Sailing Dutchman.

I am going to try to finish something for my own group build next year. But I can't decide what, so what the hey, I'm going to let you guys vote. Heaven help me...

1). Aoshima Mechagodzilla. No friggin' clue what scale. It's in my private warehouse with HobbyLink Japan. Will be getting it sometime early next year.

2). Fujima 1/144th Nakajima G10n Fugaku America bomber.

3). FineMolds 1/35th Type 89 medium tank.

4). Nissan 1/32nd '89 Skyline police cruiser with police lady figure. I'm hoping to work this somewhere in with an early '90s JGSDF MBT.

5). Hasegawa 1/48th Mitsubishi Zero 22. Can't help but stick a Zero in there somewhere.

 

Runner up- was going to list this but going to save it for ModelCrazy's Japanese Navy GB. Steve, did you set a date for this yet?

Hey Gam, looks great, especilly the America Bomber, Zero and DD.

By the way, the Japanese Flaged GB won't happen for a while. I want to do the American and German first. If you want you can save the DD until Japenese GB X.

Hey guys!! I'm still kicking around. Gam I'm just checking in, not going to commit to anything at this time, the E7K is still where it was last year. Might even drag out a new one I've gotten in the past year I'm keen to do the camo on. Anyways wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas, hope all is well!!

Steve: Thanks! Guess I'll sit on the Shimakaze a little longer then. I really don't need to jump in with anything that big anyway with my backlog. So you're voting for the G-10N and the A6M Type 22 then.

 

Simpilot34: WOW, it's good to hear from you again. Seems like forever! Hope you're well, everything is pretty much the same here.  It'd be great to have you aboard again but thanks for just checking in. Merry Christmas and best hopes for the coming new year!
