Here's another installment in the Ho-229 saga. Got the wings done tonight! That was a big accomplishment. Little fiddly parts that had to be attached. Actually, I thought I was done. It just occurred to me that I haven't put in the nav lights, y[...]
So this Zoukei-Mura Ho 229 is taking on a life of its own. It's been consuming me, I can't stop thinking about it and It's driving me insane. Much more to go.

Finally finished the ZM F-4S. Painted with Bombshell Brew and after market decals
It's been awhile since I have posted anything. This is my first completed build since having a second stroke on June 25th, I built this kit just using one hand and if it had not been engineered great I would not have been able to finish it. I [...]
The term "over-engineered" is often used to describe some manufacturing techniques lately. I can't really say that this is the case here, but it did seem (at least to me), that Z-M made this kit a little more 'complicated' that it had to be. Alt[...]
