    Hi folks

    Nakajima Type 97 KATE B5N2 Japanese Carrier Torpedo Bomber kit is from Hasegawa a rebox of Mania tooling of 70s, but then being dated doesn't mean it is bad, it is sophisticated and holds up till now. Instructions were simple and construction was smooth, just that it needs little filler near the wings. I used Humbrol and Tamiya for the paints.

    I rendered the aircraft with heavy chipping to show it has extensive service.

    Hope it has turned out ok.

    Thanks




    thounaojamtom your Kate bomber with weathering looks great!!!!! also your F4 photos which are newer built.

    You, sir, must have a large group of finished models stored somewhere? Seriously though I am impressed with your Kate bomber.....I love the old WW2 aircraft fighters and bombers. (and tanks).

    I have some photos of some old Japanese wrecked aircraft from a museum here I should find. Mrs. C and her sisters are driving to the museum in a few weeks to see their dad's metal plaque there.
    Can't find the photos of the original aircraft but one photo of an original Jap tank from WW2. ......same museum Fredericksburg, Texas

    • OK, someone please tell me how to stop my decals from peeling off.

      I placed them on the vehicle. Then gave the vehicle two coats of spray varnish. And they still come away when I touch it. Grrrr.

        When I was modeling I would trim the decal close to the printed part

        Then paint on some future floor polish where the decal went and let it dry

        Wet the decal and apply over setting solution and wait a minute or two dabbing excess water and setting solution off

        Then another layer of future and let dry

        After that spray the entire kit with a layer of future to seal the decals and base paint for weathering (Washes, Glazes Pinwashes, pastels)

        Finally a coat of Dullcoat for Armor

        • Thanks LD. I can see I probably need to do a better job at sealing them after they're affixed.
