    After four models of German planes, three of them with the same colors, time to change.

    The new model of Hasegawa. The J2M3 Raiden in 1/32 scale.

    Looks like it'll be another nice build. I've always liked the look of that plane - smooth and sleek.

    A surprise. Usually Hasegawa provides reinforcers for the wings. Allows a better fit and maintain the correct angle of the wings.
    This kit brings, beyond the usual reinforcers for the wings, the fuselage reinforcements. If the fit of the parts of the fuselage was good got better now. Even though the fuselage come a little deformed reinforcers they require them to be right. And they work.

    I started gluing the pieces.

    The engine. The pity is that after all is not ready visible.

    Tend to agree with the sleek lines of this machine, makes it look quite powerful. Looks to be an interesting build to keep my eye on.

    Didn't realize it was so big. I though it was a compact little thing.
