These days I cleaned the dust in the display case and found that I do not have pictures of this product. Im build during 2006/2007 he was also awarded at many competitions at home and around the world.
Fine Mold Mitshubishi Shusui, a prototype rocket fighter tested by the Japanese navy at the end of World War II.
something I detailed myself I used EDUARD seat belts painted then with Lifecolor acrilyc paints, decals only data placard.
According to recent data, the color is wrong and should be in the Japanese navy trainer yellow C3.I will start a new one soon.
now i take a camera and enjoy.

  1. Very nice model. Thank you for the information on the color.

  2. A well deserved awarded build, Samo.
    Looks great.

  3. A wonderful build, Samo!
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. I can tell you that the real one out at Planes of Fame Air Museum (it's the first airplane Ed Maloney saved, back in 1946, buying it off the scrap heap at a local military field here in Southern California for $150) is painted like this. So you have a model that accurately portrays the sole survivor.

  5. Nice job on your build, I like the way the cockpit area came out. The whole build looks great.

  6. Nicely done! Looks great.

  7. A few more pictures of the construction.
