There are some really excellent models in this series, not to mention a large range of subjects!
Just goes to show, as well, that even modern subjects can be interesting.

Whoever says that J-planes are boring needs to look at this series of posts.....

Fully agree with you Devlin.
I'm just surprised that you think somebody might consider J-models boring.
In my view Japanese planes of WWII are among the most exciting. Only US air forces may equal them in type and colour variety. Germany had many fancy camouflage schemes due to the different combat theatres but by far not that many different planes. And the British ... well, if you speak of boring... (sorry mates).
Cheers, Michael

The work of these very talented modelers is amazing. I especially like the KI 45. Great finish. Thanks for sharing.

Michael, I have heard off hand comments before, but it's just like every other modeling subject, you will have those that like it and others that don't. Japanese, German, British, American, Russian, etc. everyone has their own tastes.
If you want to get more esoteric, it seems (to me) that each country had their own "way" or "philosophy" behind their aircraft designs, sometimes you can just tell. That may account for some people's attitudes toward a subject?
