Japanese Aircraft Online Model Contest 013

Tuesday, 22 May 2012


In the Hasegawa booth there were a few models that won the anual "Joyful Modellers' Convention of Hasegawa". One of the most impressive was the Nakajima B5N in 1/48 by Mizuguchi-san. Crew and flight deck are scratch built and the whole project was completed in one month!!!!

Another model from the JMC contest was the Mitsubishi J2M "Raiden" in 1/32 built by Furuno-san, in 60 working hours!!!

A very unusual Raiden. Nichimo 1/72 (!!!) built by Blog Modelers member "hinomaru kokutai".

A really battered Hasegawa Raiden built by Tokushima Modelers Club member Yoshimoto-san. Excellent work on the engine.
