    Hasegawa's 1/48 Learjet militarised with resin radome, wing pods etc. Used by the JMSDF for sonar, target-towing etc. Couldn't find any interior references so I closed some of the window blinds ;) Rescribed and painted with Gunze lacquers.

    Cool plane, and a good job building it. I think the shades make it look more realistic. =D>

    Excellent build. I LOVE this kind of conversion. It’s not easy to find references on this type of bird. If you would have loaded it up with ‘black boxes’ and ‘video screens’ nobody would have known the difference

    Thanks for your comments.

    Thanks Hawkeye. I'm not sure I'd classify it as a true conversion since Hasegawa provided all the resin bits in a special boxing, but you're right – references are very hard to find, except for a few external photos on the web.
