Kawanishi N1K2-J Bandai 1/24

Hello. In my first article, I would like to show off my model. This is N1K2-J Shiden from on an impressive scale. The model from the '70s alone does not impress with details, but it impresses with its size. Span 50 cm, length 40 cm. Airplane in the colors of Sentou 301st Hikoutai 'Shinsen-Gumi', 343rd kokutai. Pilot - Lt.Naoshi Kanno (72 victories, August 1st, 1945 KIA), Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture, Shikoku, Spring 1945. I apologize for the poor photos, I will try to improve. I invite you to watch and comment.

  1. Great choice for your first post...very nice work - nothing wrong with those pics, either (and welcome aboard).

  2. These Empire of the Sun aircraft are always a great platform for weathering techniques.

  3. What a beautiful and eye catching unique build. Great job all around. Love the NMF on bottom surface. Very real looking. This plane must take up some real shelve space...WOW! Your pictures are fine, dont worry about that. Plane has nice detail work.

  4. A very nice build, and welcome to the gang on iModeler!

  5. Welcome to iModeler.

    Don't worry about your photos; they're just fine! Well done on building that monster - it's VERY well done and interesting. I especially like the undersides.

  6. Love that aircraft!

    That is a really great model, well done 🙂

  7. Real nice work! And welcome.

  8. Thank you for your words of appreciation. I will try to add the next article with the new "monster" soon.

  9. Hello Wirgiliusz, and welcome onboard at iModeler. As others said, in 1/24 scale is unusual because of the finished models are so big, but there's certainly more to look at! It's a great build of a kit that we don't see too often.
