New Group Build announcement, the Empire of Japan 1919-1946

This article is part of a series:
  1. New Group Build announcement, the Empire of Japan 1919-1946
  2. Empire of Japan Group Build has been extended !

Now that a lot of us are working from home, or have to stay home because of the virus, no time is better than the present to start something new.

A few months ago I mentioned this idea for a group build. Here it is... and everyone is invited.

This group will last almost a year, and it can be extended if need be. There is no new build requirement so if you have any stalled Japanese subjects on your "shelf of doom", you now have more than one reason to finish it.

All of the requirements are listed under the group information page. I might need a few of you to assist me with keeping it running smoothly. If you are interested in helping out, please send me a PM. Thanks.

I hope you will join us !

Lets have some fun.

  1. I’m in! Will not start right way, but you can count with my Hasegawa Model 21 Zero Louis. Should be a rather straightforward build, will include an S.B.S. resin for the cockpit

  2. Very good. I'm in - and guess what I will be building Louis 🙂

  3. Hi Louis! Thank you for starting this Group Build with such an attractive topic! I have several subjects to build, but also I'm wondering – what about "paper" projects? Something, that was only on a drawing board, and never hit production. I have a model kit of a such tank (this one –, so it could be a subject for this GB too.

  4. Looks like I'll tackle Tamiya's old Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden in 1/48 for starters. Have a couple of other kits on the shelf that I may do as well if time permits.

  11. Count me in Louis @lgardner, not sure what I'll build yet. I have a few ideas though. Need to finish a few lingering things, but I think I can come up with something before next year.

  12. Count me in as well.. this'll be a good excuse me to finish my Yamato, first and foremost. Secondly, I've got a Hiei that needs started, and maybe even a Nagato... Hhmmm.. no planes though.

  13. I have a Tamiya G4M1 somewhere. Her time has come.

  14. I am in for this one - subject matter...
    Plenty to choose from and that can be an issue in itself...
