    Hi eveyone in the forum!
    My next project is about the Type 99 Ki-48 "Sokei". The kit comes from 1/48 AZ models with thick plastic, wrong nose shape and no detailing except for a styrene Nakajima Sakae set. Therefore it's recommended only to those who want to add a lot of scratchwork detailing and definitely not to beginners.
    Starting with the cockpit apart from the other details I also made the type 89 dual mount MG which I find very attractive, from a modeller's perspective of course!My best wishes for Christmas to all !
    Cheers,
    Panagiotis.

    Thank you all gents for your kind replies!
    I've gone further on and I sscratched the nose frame.Well, actually I made two, the second being better than the first as is always the case with our hobby!. Then I put a lot of effort to make the starboard engine firewall.Finally I gave the tyres the groove type they were in the real Lily. That's allfor now guys!Thanks a lot for looking at the photos!
    Cheers,
    Panagiotis.
