  1. This is a nice looking Lightning, John.
    Well done.
    I will use this one as a reference as well for my Tamiya Lightning which I received this week.
    This will be my first Tamiya kit.

    • Hi John once you try Tamiya I don’t think you’ll do any other manufacturer of model kit. The lightning I did is very detailed especially the wheel bays.. please post it when completed and thanks for the comment

  2. I’m working on one of these, too. I’m also building the White 33 version; I find shark mouthed fighters irresistible.

  3. I'd love to comment about this model, but the lighting you photographed under precludes getting a clear view. Can you perhaps re-shoot without the sidelight sun through the window?

  4. Great job, John!
    Also eagerly waiting to see @johnb 's build!
    You guys with the Tamiya Lightings tempt me to have a round myself too!
    Still, I persist, being loyal to my unbuilt "Beautiful Lass" Hasegawa!

    Very nicely done John, clean and sharp build.
    Being honest, the sidelight in these pictures really don't do it justice, but it is a visual catcher.
