This is the old Hasegawa kit I did a few years ago. Still looks sharp. I think I might try to set up another shoot with the new Canon.

Nice build, Phil…..that thing either landed on the frozen tundra somewhere or you need to iron your backdrop. LOL – 🙂 🙂

That does indeed look sharp, Phil. Nice build of a pretty old kit, and a beautiful aircraft.

Mavis is beautiful!

Phil, love them flying boats! Good one about the snow! Got an Emily?
No I don’t, but I know where one is:same place I got the Mavis.

It looks indeed very sharp, great build with this very nice chipped paint job
Morne Meyer said on July 30, 2015
Very nice indeed. The weathering looks great!! Well done!!!
Simon Whitney said on July 30, 2015
Nice work Phil, looks OK to me.

Beautiful Mavis Phil! I like the weathering and chipping, and would love to have a more close up view of your rigging. I’ve got one of these, as well as the Emily, in my stash and I’ll come back here to use your build as a reference.
Phil Steele said on July 31, 2015
Thanks Greg !! This thing had a lot of rigging and it took some planning to lay out the drill points during construction. Some were supplied such as on the floats.( the only close up I made) but the struts had none. If you build it note that the center pylons need to be reversed and the struts need a bit of lengthening.

Hasagawa made some beautiful flying boat kits in the 1970’s, I wish they’d offer them again, the Shin Meiwa, Emily, Marlin and your nice build…
Thanks Mike. A re-issue with new tooling would be just smashing !!

Very nice modeling phil. I have a picture of my Dad standing next to the remains of one of these.

terrific post…looks like an ungainly and difficult build…wonderful subject and result
Phil Steele said on August 1, 2015
Thanks Bob !! It’s big, almost equal wing span with my B 29.

I did one of these years ago and it did not look anywhere as good as you have done with this. This is not an easy kit to build and you did a great job.

Finished this old model in a very high standard. This was truly a workhorse from the japanese Fleet Air Arm.
Phil Steele said on August 15, 2015
Thanks Dirk. I’ve noticed that the kit has been re-issued with extra moldings for torpedoes. It would be interesting. .
