    Must say the Otaki kits are a good value, really enjoyed building this one it went together nicely,the only major flaw was the top wing root area was molded short but was'nt too hard to fix. Please feel free to critique away all comments welcome thanks Trey

    There pretty great value for the money, even if you get photoetch and resin for them they still come out pretty decent compared to other kits :D

    Nice work, the Arii/Otaki kits scrub up rather well with a bit of effort......their G-6 kit.

    :D cheers ZX10 (..nothing else is like a big ninja/kwak - muhuhahaha) not so bad a model as it turns out ..considering well done on the camo too 8)
    Nice G-6 there too Wayne, I wonder, are the buelles/breech bumps asymetrical - port/left side is a little further outwards compared to stbd/right bump?

    Looks great, count me as another fan of the Otaki/Arii 1/48 aircraft, those kits were ahead of their time.
