  1. Muy bien amigo, muy reales los desconchones de pintura típicos de los aviones japoneses.
    La iluminación es perfecta con esa caja,te agradecería más información sobre ella.

    • Hi Julio! Thank you very much! On this plane I tried the very strong wears of Japanese machines. My next project will also be a Japanese fighter machine to be built but a large scale one. The photo tents are ordered from ali express, each side is 60cm, and the brand is Viltrox.Very useful equipment!

  2. Well done Dinah defense fighter version. Have that on the build cue for the upcoming year and nice to see one built. Yes very nice kit and terrible decals. Will try to go aftermarket when it is time to get this on the workbench shortly as it is the next project in line. And nice setup of your photo booth. So you use your android phone for your images. The newer ones do work quite well now. Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Chuck! Thank you very much! Despite the age of the model, it is really good! My new Japanese project is a Hasegawa kit, its stickers are also very stiff, I am going to paint the signs on that one. The photo tent is great, the manufacturer recommends this equipment specifically for mobile phone photography. I'm so glad you like my job!

    Nice work on that Dinah, Bhandez … very good chipping … thanks for sharing the photos.

  4. This is a really cool model. Love it great job. Paint job is great. Captured the look of a war torn bird of war very nicely. Great photographs. Looking really really nice.

  5. Very nice build - and the photo box created some excellent imagery!
