Fujimi’s A5M4 in 1/72

I’ve had this one in the stash for awhile and it was an older kit when I got it. That meant the decals were not of much use as they yellowed considerably. So I masked everything on this one. I also used a trick from Tom Cleaver to get [...]

A5M Claudes

I only had one A5M Claude in my Japanese collection, (A5M4-K by Classic Airframes), so recently I built 2 Claudes from Wingsy Kits. This was my first experience with Wingsy Kits, and they are exceptional, a real pleasure to build. One [...]

Mitsubishi A5M4

This is the Special Hobby kit 1/32scale. -The build is pretty much OOB, but take your time with it. It is one of their earlier kits. The stabilizers don’t have any locating pins. So I added some for strength. [...]

Not an Emil!

The dust has barely settled on my last post (yesterday's Bf109E-7) and I'm already sharing another one, but there's a reason for it! The model is FineMolds' recent Mitsubishi A5M2b "Claude", done with the kit decals in the [...]

1/48 Fine Molds A5M2b Claude

Just some photos from my recent build of a Fine Molds A5M2b Claude. Very easy kit to build and no major issues. I really enjoyed building this one. I'll write a full article soon (too busy.) To get the slight gold/yellow tone of the [...]

Sweet 1/144 Type 96 Carrier Fighter (A5M4)

I started this project yesterday, and finished it up this afternoon. As with all of Sweets' kits, I loved it. A relaxing (mostly), easy build and 4 really cool livery. The model was airbrushed with Alclad II White Aluminum, and [...]

1/48 Mitsubishi A5M4 Claude – Empire of Japan Group Build.

This is the 2016 Fine Molds kit. I can’t speak highly enough about its quality. It’s an outstanding kit in every way. Feel free to check out my build log in the EoJ group build section and you’ll see how nice it is. The Claude was [...]

Fine Molds 1/48 Mitsubishi Ka-14, the A5M ”Gull wing” Prototype

This is my first completion for our ever growing Empire of Japan Group Build. This is the Mitsubishi Ka-14, which eventually because the A5M "Claude". Apparently there were six different prototypes built. Each one was [...]

Fine Molds 1/48 Claude

Just finished this one as a pretty quick build. Great kit - I really enjoy building FM stuff. Just wish they would make more kits 🙂 I build the FM Ki-10 "Perry" some time back, and this kit was just as enjoyable of a [...]

Mitsubishi A5M4 Claude.

This is the 1/48 scale Finemolds Mitsubishi A5M4 Claude. Imperial Japanese Navy, INJ Kaga, 1939. The kit contained 67 parts, and apart from the seat harness, was built straight out of the box. It was painted with Alclad II, Aeromaster [...]
