Shizuoka 2017 pt. 3

One of the most frustrating things with the models were the IFF stripes. Eight out of ten modelers got them wrong on their "Hien" spoiling, in my eyes, some very good models.









A quite nice pair of Zeros in 1/72
 














 
Every year, one of my favourite tables is of the "Project 144" with interesting subjects in the tiny 1/144 scale. The 9-shi Medium Attack Bomber and the Mitsubishi Ki-2 were really something else!

I see what you mean with respect to finish and detail. I'm getting to where I take a close look at the IFF stripes as well as overall finish. Some do look a bit rushed.

However, I do see some that I like!
