I put the project I just start to finish idea if all goes well in mid-January 2013, and I have to go sandwiching other work and my own work in addition to the family.
it's already quite old mold otaki the LF MKVIII, RAAF, the kit brings the decals to make the CR + C but are badly damaged and before collecting almost obsessive books I have I have received the No. 18 topcolors of Kagero where decals are endless (17 different models), the book shows a profile that I really like carrying the inscription as dumbo, always caught my attention, so that model makes the "hava go jo" , UP + F A58-517 of the RAAF, Morotai in February 1945.

Otaki kit is very empty inside so I will be adding things to scracth and made ​​entirely different gauge copper wire, for now this is what I have done:

Go on! It looks impressive so far!
Although it is not an easy model, you can change her in a great looking miniature!
