Nakajima G8N1 Renzan "Rita", Hasegawa 1/72nd
This old kit has been through it so I wanted to try some techniques that were new to me. For the most part they worked. I would like to see Hasegawa re-release this kit, maybe adding more detailing in the flight deck. Overall this is a good kit and I had fun doing it.

A6M5b Zero. Hasegawa + Eduard Photo-etch parts. 1/72
I am a fan of the Eduard Zoom series of photo-etched parts. These sets are generally less complex than the other Eduard sets while providing all of the parts that the normal modeler will usually want and use. With some of the latest sets, Eduard are providing even more value for the modelers the photo-etched parts are already colored. The modeler no longer has to worry about painting the intricate parts.

Nakajima Kikka. MPM. 1/72nd
First impressions were of a finely executed moulding, with very restrained engraving to the main parts. Smaller parts were not so refined and were more prone to flash.

Mitsubishi Ki-30 'Ann'. Pavla. 1/72nd
Initial impressions were of a finely executed moulding, with very restrained engraving to the main parts.. Smaller parts were not so refined, but there was no flash anywhere.
