1/32 Zoukei-Mura Ho 229
Normally, I would add this article to the Work-in-Progress section, but this this thing is coming along so nicely that I thought it would be appreciated more here. This has been-other than the addition of HGW seatbelts and wood panel decals- a completely out of the box build. It shows you how beautifully engineered this kit really is. The parts fit has been superb, and if you follow the instructions carefully (as it is quite complex), you can build a pretty nice model rather quickly.
The wings are on temporarily at the moment. I’ve attached them with brass pins for now and the alignment in absolutely perfect. The port wing hasn’t been completely painted yet and hopefully I’ll get to that today. It will also be clad in plywood decals. There are still many parts left in the box that need to be added. The center section will also be bare plywood and it will rest on its own stand because I think it’s the guts of the plane that really add interest.
