The next reveal is one that I am not too enthused over. I feel that I could have done a better job on this kit. The cockpit is quite bare and I didn’t think you would be able to see that well into it with the canopy installed. Turns out that you can see very well into it revealing a mediocre at best cockpit. Live and learn, right?
Arri Models continues to impress me with their kits. The ease of the build was the most prominent aspect that stuck out. It was a good build throughout. I chose to go with the camouflage scheme on this kit. I have never given a Japanese build anything other than gray or green so it was a nice change.
This was my first attempt at using the salt technique. It worked well in some areas better than others. It is still, to me, a more realistic approach than dry-brushing the paint chips on. So here it is. Not my best work but it’ll go up on the shelf nonetheless. I’m sure it will grow on me in time.
