Tamiya 1/72 Aichi M6A1-K Nanzan – Seiran Kai

Nice little kit, with very nice detail. Only complaints are the windscreen and canopy fit. Generally pretty poor. A little filing here and there got them both to settle down OK. I am not happy with the antennae (EZ Line). […]

This kit was not an easy build – not for me, anyway. There were significant fit issues, no pin holes to align the fuselage halves, landing gear struts that didn’t fit into the corresponding holes in the upper wing section, […]

I don’t even remember what manufacturer this was (anyone?). I do recall it was a pretty straight-forward build with no memorable issues – of course, you must keep in mind I don’t remember what I ate for lunch yesterday. It […]
