  1. Paul, fine job on this. Is it the nose profile that’s reputedly “off” on this?
    Thanks for posting this, I like WW II Japanese planes. I was pleased to hear this was out, but then the negative comments started. Not cheap, either.
    It is certainly an obscure aircraft to most, which is why I like it.

  2. Not to take away from your build which is very well done. I paid $99 for this lil beaut when it first came out and have never been more burned by a model ever. AZ really screwed the pooch on this one from A to Z. I’m not sure if the Vultee Vengeance was worse but it doesn’t matter.
    BTW the Lily is for sale if anyone’s interested. 🙂

    • Thank you. And sorry to hear that for you too. I glided through it. Mind you, I’m in the middle of a Fiat Br20 which is a nightmare. I’ve been doing it on/off for two years. I’d love a Vengeance. Lol. Want one. I’d buy that if you had it. One Lily is enough sorry. Lol. All the best.

    • I’ve bought (at retail) both, and posted both. They were and are awful, but the only games in town. Burned isn’t an adequate description of how I felt, but I persevered and they came out well, IMHO.
      I swore to read the reviews of others before going that route again.

  3. Paul – I like the scheme you did for this one. I’ve got lots of Japanese planes to build, and am looking for a variety of different schemes so they all aren’t just “green!” Mind me asking what the 2 top colors were? FS #’s are fine if you have them.
