Yokosuka MXY-7 Ohka Fine Molds 1/48 for The Empire of Japan Group Build

A while back I started building Kamikaze machines for the 'iModeler goes to The Movies' group build. A thread can be found there that shares some views and history around two modern Japanese films (The Eternal Zero and For Those We Love) that r[...]

Fine Molds 1/72 Kyushu Q1W1 “Lorna”

The Lorna was an anti-submarine aircraft used by the Japanese in WW2. Obviously a close copy of the Ju-88, the Lorna could be equipped with both radar and MAD (Magnetic Anomaly Detection). This is a great kit that was a dream to build. I trie[...]

1/48 Civil Ki-15 Babs – Empire of Japan Group Build.

This is the new Fine Molds kit. Fine Molds has marketed three different versions of this model and mine is the third one finished here on imodeler in the last couple of months. We now have an example of each kit posted. No complaints about thi[...]

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 slightly different from[...]

Fine Molds 1/48 Ki-15 Babs

When this kit was announced I was very pleased - not only is it a subject I have been wanting in 1/48 scale, but it was being made by one of my favorite manufacturers! Fine Molds has a small catalog, and they are definitely a niche player, but [...]

If in Spring 1942 one of these was sighted over your base, it meant hell was coming to breakfast. The C5M2 was only made in small numbers and was used for a short time, but it was part of a deadly system. The land based Kokutais Of the Japane[...]

Imperial Japanese Navy – Yokosuka MXY7 Ohka

A recently done this tiny funny build from Fine Molds with the self-challenge to build it as fast as possible. Done it in about 5 days. Very fine details and good quality parts. I also got a PE set for small details as the pitot tube and the bom[...]

1/48 Fine Molds Mitsubishi Ki-15

Model was done OOB with the addition of Eduard seat belts. This kit is very well done but it is a shame that the excellent interior details supplied with the kit can not be seen because there is no open cockpit option. This model represents a [...]

D4-Y2 Judy

From the author: I would like to present my last build (D4-y2 Judy form Fine Molds). I have to admit I thought that it would have Japanese quality. The kit has very good details and metal machinegun. But… Yeah, there is a lot of buts. The kit ha[...]

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 build. Nice to have so[...]
