Nakajima C6N "Saiun" (Myrt) by Panagiotis Koubetsos

This is my finished 1/48 Hasegawa Nakajima "Saiun" model, depicting the first prototype just a few weeks before her maiden flight on 15 May, 1943. Many thanks to my good on-line friend George Eleftheriou whose help and support during the build was more than valuable.

Panagiotis, What a marvelous job! I was following your work in progress on XXX since the beginning, congratulations with the astonishing end result! I'll use your work as a reference when I put my hands on Fujimi's C6N in 1/72. Regards, Iskender

Thank you all guys for your kind comments! Really glad you like my Saiun prototype model.Let's hope the same will happen with my hangar dio and the prototype integrated in it!

One of the finest models I've ever seen, and of one of my very favorite subjects. I've built this kit, and as fine as it is, I know what you accomplished. One obvious ingredient of this build: utter confidence!
Kudos, and keep building.
