The Japanese Nightfighter: Gekko Late Production 1/48
Finished her today after a long battle with minor details and my own faults.
Trying to get a less boring, monochromatic all green Jap plane was my challenge, that and cutting my stash by building long time stored kits.
The build part was a joy, a true Tamiya engineering, almost no fuss or putty, but the painting, weathering and detailing were a bit of a pain. So there you go…another step on the learning curve.
Kit got Eduard’s PE and masks. In fact almost all markings are painted, the exception were the small #76 and 176, too small for me I guess. Cannon ends are Quickboost replacements.
I guess building that Zero will not be sometime soon
