    Hello gentlemen!

    After the Betty dio, it is time to devote my attention to the beautiful Saiun,(code named Myrt),and especially to the very 1st prototype built in the first months of 1943..

    The kit is in my favorite 1/48 scale..I decided to divide the build in 5 sections..

    I decided to remove the inner fuselage parts of the kit and do some scratchwork there..

    Panagiotis.

    Should turn out awesome!
    One of my favorite aircraft...the forward-slanted tail does it!

    Ok... Here we go again! Every time I looked at that Betty, and then my models, I would get depressed. Now it's time to go through that story again, only this time with Saiun... ;)

    Just kidding! It's a real pleasure to watch your work! Well done!
