1/48 Tamiya Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate (Frank)
I'm new to iModeler and a beginner model maker. This is my first post so be easy on me. Not sure if this is where I'm suppose to post but here it it.
Old Tamiya kit I had fun making. Not much detail and the fit wasn't great but it turned out ok. Wish it had more recessed panel lines. It didn't come out perfect or 100% accurate but I still had a good time making it. I think it needs more weathering.
I tagged this to the Empire of Japan group build and added some more pics. Wish I would of done a WIP with photos.
Frank was painted with Tamiya AS-12 from the can then airbrushed highlights with Mr. Color Silver 8. I also airbrushed the “Meatballs” with a stencil I made at work on the vinyl cutter using oromask 810 film. For the Aotake color in the landing gear bay I airbrushed Testors metallic green (looks more turquoise in person). A little bit of soft pastels was used for weathering and EZ-line finished it off for the rigging.
