    Well after reading and looking at everyone's builds i thought I try my hand at another build.This will be totally OOB in 1/72, submitted as Catagory 2, for I have always wanted to build this plane.I will be doing the camo verison because there is a thin blue line for demacation between the Green and Brown I always thought would look sweet.Just how to make it happen uniformily?The history?got me looks cool,it belongs to 3rd Chutai 8th Hiko Sentai.The info provided is that the Army wanted a light,fast,manuverable attack bomber and this is what they got.It could reach a top speed of 480km/hr and cruise at 350km/hr for 6 hrs and climb to an altitude of 5000m in 10minutes.

    Crew = 4
    Length = 17.47m
    wingspan = 15.85m
    height = 3.8m
    wing area = 40m2
    weapons = 3 fixed 7.7mm
    bomb load = 400kg
    engine = [email protected] Naka HA-25

    Didn't think you'd be long in joining in! Looks like a nice kit Kevin, should be good. Don't know much about this kite, it's got the look of a Marin Baltimoe about it. Looking forward to the build mate.

    The "Lilly" is a good choice, Javlin. Looks like it will be an interesting build. Good luck with it.

    Well a little progress thus far,copit is for the most part done.The pics are not the best but it so small.The White stryene is to close the gap between the side panels of the pit with the fuselage walls.I was not going to worry about it at first but it was just nagging at me.Now still have to thin down from the pit to the wall some.The engine looks better than the pics but I thought I was going to have to add the mag and accompling loop but the kit did provide it.Should button up the pit today.CYA Kevin

    She's buttoned up with wings and tailplanes attached.She had very few seems to worry about biggest and it's already been zapped and wiped next will be some Mr Surfacer on the lower left wing.I have decided to let the stinger hang out from onderneath.I always hated these on IL2 with some of those Russian and Polish jobs,deadly.
