Thank you Jose. It's been a long time I actually will be able to finish build. Moving to Asia had some aspects I did not for see at all. Thai don't have hobbies, except for eating
Next two weeks for finishing and touch ups.
Rest of all campaigners, nice builds so far I have seen.

Some more pictures. The wood in the back I picked up at a night market near Bangkok. I've got 3 build coming up with the same theme. First focus is to fix the wing extensions and last details on the cockpit.




Two weeks is my goal, leaves some space for other building

There's four great looking models on the previous page. All of them finished to a high standard and each one done in a different way. Well done Oliver, Chris, Sal and Robert Jan.

Actually I'm building a Hayate, code name Frank. But thanks for the compliment anyway.



Yes, I am sorry! Probably, I really have to increase my knowledge of Japanese aircraft. Nice progress! This will turn out well!

Hello. Here is a first shot of what I'm aiming at. Process slows me down, and I like that.





Kind regards,

Busy with panel liners, oils and what is applicable to bring the plane to life. Will be finished end of March for sure.
Planning a display with some basics, also to use for future builds with the same subject. Found some nice wooden panels on a night market near Bangkok that will give it a some what symbolic touch.
Pictures of the process will follow soon.

Kind regards,

Robert Jan

Mike, Tom and Jose: Thank You very much for Your comments!

Tom: The additional work on the cockpit clearly is a fine benefit to the special hobby kit. You did the detail very nice! And the plumbing of the engine looks good!

Chris: The Zero looks good from here! And the engine is a real eye catcher!

Sal: Good progress. Good to see one more Hawk .

Robert Jan: The Hayabusa is awesome!

By the way, I have some problems with my avatar. It is in the gallery, but does not appear here. Any clues?

It looks more like a Zero now. There aren't many markings on Japanese aircraft just the national insignia in 6 places, the "don't walk" areas over the flaps, the data stencil below the tail and the filler caps for the fuel tanks. So decaling is a pretty fast procedure. Weathered the paint work just a little light chipping to do around the access covers and a satin coat to pull it all together. I have of course got to finish the undercarriage and do some touch up in the wheel wells.

Sal:[/b] Good looking Hawk! Are the green patterns brush painted free hand? Wing roots and prop-nose still have quite a big gap, isn't it?


Yes the green is hand painted. Dont think I had the nose pushed all the way on, wing I cant do anything about.
But I got the markings on today

When all is cured, hope soon, fun begins! Weathering and final details. Canopy scares me off because I never spray painted that before. We will see.

Drinking some ice cold 🍺

Robert Jan,

The key is making sure the masks over the clear areas are burnished down really well so the edges are nice and tight. Sort of mist on the colors so there's as little pressure as possible behind the paint. Also, this may be really basic, but I always paint the interior color first, then the exterior. That way the interior color shows though on the inside.

Great work everyone!!

It's been a while, but modest progress has been made on my 1/32 SH A5M Claude. This is one of the "simpler" Special Hobby kits - no resin.
Regards-
Tom



Nice progress, Tom! Pit looks very beautiful and good work on the engine. Thanks for your kind words about the Hawk!
Looking foreward to your build.
Thomas
