An old kit that I had some fun with a few years ago. I love finding things like this at contest swap meets and entering them the next year!

  1. Good point. I also find that all the "planned" kit purchases are not nearly as tempting to build than impulse-bought second hand kits. Don't ask me why...

  2. So true! I am doing up a Hase version of this little guy. Easy to put together but that NMF requires perfection!

  3. I too am always enticed by my second hand buys before my purpose built "new" purchases! Why I built my second hand He-111H22 (posted a while back) before my PB-1W is beyond me! Maybe the challenge to complete what someone else gave up on?

  4. Oh yeah, I keep forgetting to tell people that the kit they have presented is great!- Sorry that I went on about myself there and didn't touch on your kit!

  5. Nice job. The kit I have has mold damage on both wings top and bottom, so it only gets attention when I'm waiting for another project to dry or need a break. I like the look of the riveting as it's more like what the actual surface of Nakajima aircraft looked like than Hasegawa's smooth finish. Wish you had posted more photos, but this one is very nice and clear.
