Well, I'm calling this one finished. The weathering is far from perfect but as it's my first attempt on an aircraft, I'm happy enough with it.

However, I very much doubt I shall use that amount of P/e in an aircraft again, only for much of it to be virtually impossible to see.

















If you want to view the interior.... click here....... it's on page one.

Excellent Al. Hard to believe it's your first aircraft.

The added time and expen$e of the plane are worth it in this case.  You have a model whose quality is among the best anywhere, and now it's in your collection.  Done and done well!

Excellent job of an interesting subject. I like Hasegawa 1/48 kits , their larger
Japanese WWII subjects have excellent details inside without the PE headaches.
You done real good, try the Hasegawa 1/48 Kate or Val sometime.---John
