Hasegawa 1/32 Kawanishi Shiden-Kai. From the Empire Of Japan Group Build.

Felina! (recognize that, Breaking Bad people?) Best finale ever from the best show ever. Anyway this is my finale, less spectacular for sure, but the Shiden-Kai is done. Hasegawa makes it so easy to do a nice looking model. Only screw-ups here w[...]
