  1. This is very nice. Good to see you caught that those airplanes were very well-maintained, and that they had a gloss finish. Excellent work!

  2. Yep….what TC said…good-lookin’ build indeed.

  3. Looks good. Getting all the frame lines done on the canopy is a daunting process.

  4. Very tidy build, really like the glossy finish of a well maintained airframe.

  5. Thats a good looking plane. Nice work!

  6. Nicely done Marcus, glad to see you didn’t dirty her up. Those planes were well maintained.

  7. Thank you all for your kind comments!

  8. Working on the same plane! But there must have been some differences in yours and mine (also a Hasegawa). Great job on the canopy! This is the first model plane I’ve built in over 25 years. Boy a lot has changes. And, it looks great for those who can do it, but I don’t think it is for me. I’m using the same color scheme, but with some strange combos. I’m trying to make it look like a 1943 style when things were getting shifted from carriers to land-based units.

    Oh, doing this one as my Dad brought back an “Angle of Dive” gauge from one of these.

    Beautiful Work!!

  9. Thank you Mike!Looking forward to seeing yours soon!
