I don't see any application for what I build... And they are the most expensive paint I have seen yet!

They are also lacquer paints and after the terrible trial with Alclad II lacquer paint that refused to dry and cure on the Horten 335 build and despite a good solid primer coat, melted the fuselage of a mustang then I stay clear of these paints.

However, I have just received my Scale Model Shop order to which I replaced the RLM 75/76 paints which are empty and I took the opportunity to get and try out a couple of Vallejo's Mecha paint range.

I don't think that I will have time to do the Shinden, but I did get an email from the old man's secretary asking if I am going to be there!

More plastic spoons to be sacrificed to the great paint God!

3 new kits coming from our guys in Japan.

What is already coming is other kits in the Ki-45 Nick series, FW 190 (probably multiple models), Hs 129 and in 1/46 a F4-E.

Just announced as the results of the competition held

Bf 109 G
Ar 234
P-51B/C


I would like them to do Spitfire and Hurricane in 1/32 as well as more Japanese subjects too!

latest OMB is up with 109 and 190 details.

https://www.zoukeimura.co.jp/en/sentiment/oyajiblog_113.html

I am already drooling at what I have seen and these are only 3d printed test parts. The next step is copper molds for test building and then final stainless steel molds for production.

I will be sending an email to the old man who is a good friend and getting my order in! I will hope that these will be ready for Telford in November!

Now I must get my skates on and build both HS 129 kits too. Space in my stash is so low there is already starting to be an overflow!

According to the blog the 190 is the A series so the fist one is the A-3/A-4 early and then will follow the A-5 to A-8.

The Bf-109 first release will be the G-14 followed by the G-2, G-4, and G-6.

Plenty there for Luftwaffe fans amongst us, People should start to save pennies!

Not really bothered about the figure.

Looking at this then the extras needed are metal gun barrels, possible cockpit set for IP etc and of course insignia paint masks. I will see if Top Notch has G-14 camo masks available. I do know that these had the 74/75/76 paints.

Now I already have 1 Ho 229 ordered and paid for and I do intend to do this as a two seater night fighter with Radar (which I already have got from Master in Poland). I need the two seater set and metal barrels. I wonder if I should also get the engine interior set and have one of the engines opened up so all the internal detail can be seen.

According to ZM they are also going to do the G-2, G-4 and G-6. With the FW 190 They intend to do most of the A variants. starting with the A-3/A-4 and then A-5 to A-8 and other later production variants. I also expect to see more He-129 kits eventually, especially with the big 75mm gun.

I think that they will all eventually end up in Yorkshire but now I have to be very careful with my money at this moment in time.
