Tamiya 1/72 N1K1 Finished
Posted by cbaltrin on Tuesday, March 8, 2022 11:58 PM

Here is my 1/72 Tamiya N1K1 Shinden. Kit went together well; however, I had a small issue with the underwing cannon. The gun barrels are almost touching the landing gear doors. I must have been a bit careless when I glued the gun fairings to the bottom of the wing because I could not attach the port gun due to the gear door being in the way! there I was with a painted and decaled and clear coated model, with the gear attached (and most of the other easily broken off pieces) and a dremel with a small cutter bit in my hand, enlarging the opening in the gun fairing so I could squeeze in the gun barrel!  I also had an issue with the canopy fit, believe it or not...

Sharp! I especially like the demarcation line on the cowling. Crisp clean build.
