Default Meanwhile in the Pacific.

I've collected a few Japanese airframes over the past little while so I guess it's about time I did something with them. First up we have an oldie but a standard classic. The Zero.

Assembled cockpit and slightly tweaked engine.







am I one of the cool kids now?

Good grief really had to dig deep to find this thread again. So many dust bunnies... Oh Gawd they're revolting run... Run while you still can..

Erm. Yeah.. So yeah the other day I picked up a Grumman TBM Avenger in 72nd scale. Not sure who made the kit since it's all in Japaneses. It's an okay kit not really much to it. Neat feature that actually works is the wings fold for below deck stowage. So far it looks like time wise I'll have it done within one day start to finish. First time for everything.

Whoever thought up of birdcage style canopies can bite my rear end. That was a pain to paint by hand. What was interesting for me to paint was the rear turret glass. I also used a dremel tool to grind out the ventral gunners position and the body windows. Which currently have glass cut to fit the new openings. Need to figure out how to get glass and the gun into the ventral position.

Good lookin' piece of work.

If you have problems getting the glass into the ventral fuselage,may I
recommend using TESTOR's Clear Canopy Glue.

Just carefully spread it over the openings.It dries strong,and crystal clear.

Thanks. Don't know why I didn't get an email when you posted your comment. I have a bottle of the testors canopy glue. I'll give it a try and see what happens.
