Waikong>  I'll add my congratulations on a superb job.  The Dinah looks great!  It's nice to see a Japanese aircraft in such a different color.

Thanks everyone for their comments, these group builds really help me to get stuff done and finished. The general lockdown also helps :) the most modeling I have done in years. When's the next one ?? The picture chosen is fine, thank you. As for the weathering, I like to see the extreme weathering once in a while, but in general I like mine used but not abused.

Waikong that is one outstanding Dinah! We're used to seeing so much extreme weathering - it's refreshing to see an example of an in service aircraft with (IMHO) normal wear and tear. Well done!

Waikong: Oh wow! Great job! I love the restrained chipping and wear. Just posted you on the front page! As usual if you'd rather a different photo just lemme know and I'll change it out. 

Again thanks for joining us as good show!!!

TJ> The F-2B is looking good.  I had to look up the F-2B just to find out what it was!  Interesting aircraft.

Kind of like the F-16's step brother

Yep!  It was the two-seat version that was throwing me off.  Smile

An Akagi update, sort of. Still drilling and installing porthole covers.

Many many more to do.

I don't usually use pilots but I wasn't crazy about the seats. Pilots covered the seats

I'm with G on the PE on it.  I wouldn't even try all that detailed on a 1/200 or bigger.

 

Getting more done on the Myrt, got the fuselage glued up and seams sanded.  Fitting the wing is now nightmare.  Going to have to do even more trimming and try to clamp and glue one side at a time.

Thanks Gam.

I started to install the portholes and sealed covers. The portholes with just the sealed cover will be getting the porthole PE as well. I think maybe while most portholes were closed during the pre emptive wind up to the attack there may have been a few open. I need to get a few more sheets of PE to finish. I also continued on the 25mm AA guns. With building attrition due to lost or broken pieces, I need to get another pack of these as well. There are still a few pieces to add to the guns as well.

The Akagi saga.

First off I finished all the handholds, then decided to replace the individual ladder rungs on the hull. So I orders the rungs and waited. While installing the rungs and cleaning off the original plastic blobs, I found some of the porthole eyebrows were removed during the process of removing the rungs and handholds, so I orders some portholes. I received the rungs sometime back and the porthold the other day but thought I should catch up here.

So, here she is with the handholds. Forgive if you've already see this pic.

next is the ladder rungs, They are very small and will be streighted better before paint.

Unfortunatly, I keep breaking off the railings so I had to order new generic IJN railings Sad

Anyway, on to the portholes. I'll need more of them since there's about 300 per side Tongue Tied

Piers>  The tractor and driver are looking great!  I do have to admit some doubt on using split peas as a wall.  That organic material may not hold up.  I would have used some lead birdshot, but then someone would grouse about lead poisoning...  Wink

Still looks good!
