I'm only this fast because these are rebuilds rather than new construction, Sall! ;)

Here's the J2M3 that was flown by the British for evaluation. I decided to mark it as B1-02, the second of the two ATAIU SEA machines. Rising Decals did a sheet with ship B1-01 on it and the markings are slightly different between the two. Most of the drawings of the right side of 01 show that the "ATAIU" lettering didn't interfere with the roundel, but on this airplane the painters "ran out of room" so to speak and simply brushed the letter over the roundel. The toothpaste paint chipping process really worked great--thanks to Letipapa and Profa for inspiring me with this method! :-ok

Group Build> Japan


I'm going to take a break from the Japan-Build for a while and finish up a couple of other projects that I've had started for some time. We invite everyone to keep contributing anything related to the Japanese as this is still an open build.

I've still got those two D4Ys on the bench and several old unbuilt kits in the shed, but I'm going to take a short break from meatballs for a little while. If this thread gets stale we'll find a way to revive it!

Here is a "before and after" photo essay of the majority of my builds for this thread--it was pretty easy to restore versus actually building new kits!

For those who like to model Japanese subjects, here's something to fire up your inspiration this autumn... ;)

Including 32 very diverse profiles by yours truly :)
I'd recommend grabbing a couple of those Hasegawa 1/32 kits...
