An excellent piece of work for such a small-ish scale. Nice job, sir.
Nice work, Geoffrey. A welcome change from the silver/mottle scheme so often modelled as representative of the type.
Yes good looking model Geoffrey.
Really nice Geoffrey. Hard to tell its 1/72 scale.
Good looking Tony Geoffrey, especially in 1/72.
Great looking Tony! I've got a couple of the Hasegawa 1/72's in my stash that I want to get to soon. Tony is my 2 favorite Japanese fighters, along with the Raiden (Jack).
How did you find the AK metals?
And by "find," I meant "to work with," not "to locate..."
I found it very easy to work with. I sprayed this over a primer of Mr Surfacer 1200 and was pleased with the results. It dries very quickly and can be handled in minutes. I had no problem with it lifting when masking but I dabbed the masking tape on my forehead as was told by others it might lift if I did not. I sprayed a coat of Alclad Semi Matte over the top of it. I imagine that over a black base it will really make for a lustrous finish.
It' a long time I didn't work on a Jap, seen your make me feel ready for that. Nice Job.
Very nice result with this.
