Welcome to Large Scale Modeller: The home of the large scale military model builder. 

Sir Desmond Glazebrook

Hasegawa Nakajima Ki-84.

Recommended Posts

Well since my last disaster (seriously who breaks 2 fuselages???) I shall move onto another, the Ki-84. I have 2 sets of AM. If this works out I will be able to include the second set in my Xmas prezzy.

Wish me luck. :thumbsup2:

Work has begun on the Hayate. Sadly I deleted the photo. However I can share how lucky I am. A 15 minute bus ride takes me to whole the range of GSI and Tamiya products.

Why am I lucky? GSI offers a range of paints covering virtually all the colours used by Japanese corporate weapons builders. My all time favourite modelling subject is Japanese military. I don't know why. I just like the shapes.

The current build is a Nakajima Hayate. I have this.

Here is my stash of Japanese paints.

The Ki-84 is a very simple kit. I won't screw it up. :thumbsup2:

Hi Harv. Sadly I cannot match 1to1scale.

I am going to be very careful with this build. I still can't get over my breaking the p-40 so close after the seiran and Dinah. Those I can repair. The kittyhawk is a write off. I still have the wings with my putty canvass. :thumbsup2:

Don’t put yourself down, I have seen your work, it’s top notch!
 

We all screw up a kit or part occasionally. I worked two months building a nice MIG-15, only to screw it up in final weathering.

Looks great Dale. Love the seat cushions.

 

Thanks very much. 

I was unhappy with the fit of the mounting points for the cockpit. There were serious gaps where the pit sidewalls didn't mate to my satisfaction.  So I removed them and I am sanding so as to get a better fit. I plan to add supports when the fore and aft walls are fitted snugly.

I didn't get much done over Xmas. Just rescribing and smoothing out joins.

The strange light is the sun shining through bush fire smoke.

Hasegawa made the model so that the horizontal stabilizers sit at this angle. Although the line drawings I found all showed them as straight, I decided to trust Hasegawa. The model is made this way, it would be impossible to mix up starboard with port.

That stabiliser angle looks really weird ... You're sure about it ?

Keep up the tempo, mate ! :thumbsup2:
