1/48 Hasegawa Ki-100 - I ko
Here is my build of the Hasegawa Ki-100_1 ko that I completed late last summer. there were some issues with the fit of the gun troughs and front cowl ring, but nothing that couldn't be solved be slight shimming and lots of dry fitting. the Plane was primed with Mr Surfacer 1500, then a coat of MR Color GX2 was applied to the undersides in prep for the AK Xtreme Metal (my first NMF). Looking back I'm not too happy with the result, but it was a good first attempt. I black based with various shades and then painted the upper sides with AK RC330 (Japanese Olive drab/brown) the paint was heavily chipped and abraded and then weathered with oils.
All markings were painted with self made masks and Oramask 813 film. Hope you like it. all of my WIP builds are in the Empire of Japan Group Build.
