Well,

Here it is basically ready for priming and painting. I've left off the exhausts and the props just fall out. There are a few seams that need work but those corrugations hide lots of problems well. The canopy fits fantastically (Tamygawa-like) and I really like the schnazzy wheel pants.




So I can build a retracted dust bin gun enclosure...and I think it will look so cool with the camo, this one will be Spanish Civil War colors.

Masking the markings will be easy too!

More soon and thanks for looking. What a great group build this is turning out to be. Lots of enthusiasm and lots of subjects.

I got the kit cheap and someone had taken everything off the trees, bagged it all and might have lost parts. I don't see any covering for the dorsal position and there is nothing for the forward position (alternative turret by the pilots).

In fact, the dorsal gun position looks to have the wrong type of opening. I will have to work on that.

I hope this helps. If it's not clear, let me know.

Was there every really any question? I think I'll pick up another to build with a different scheme. There are a lot of them to choose from!

Cheers.

Dan it is looking good....
It's amazing how it looks pretty substantial with all that metal. Sits nicely on the ground too.

Pretty impressive. Must be huge in 1/48th!

Thanks for looking.

Hello Dan, "Tante Ju" is looking great. It's good to
know the Airfix kit goes together so well.
