Kawanishi H6K "Mavis" by Chas Bunch

Here's the "Mavis".  Hasegawa 1:72.  Built OOB a few years ago, I can't remember anything special other than the rear turret glass was broken, so I glued it back together and used it as a pattern to heat smash a new one from clear acetate. Model Master paint, the hinomarus are painted, the only decals are the tail codes. Even in 1:72 this is a big model!

Beautiful work! It really is an accomplishment to produce work like this in any scale, but in 1/72, it's extra special.
