    Please meet Pilot Susumu Takaoka enjoying last cup of sake before taking of in the newest Imperial Japanese Navy plane.


    I tried to experiment a little bit with scenery...


    I invite everybody to my gallery for few more photos.

    VERY nice build! I like the shot with the trees too.

    Sake before flying? So THAT'S why those guys kept running their planes into our ships! :)

    Where did the pilot figure come from? I've been looking for 1/35 scale pilots for Japanese, German, and US WWII models.

    This looks spectacular Mike, superb pics and backround. Try one in black and white and give it a little grain and blurr and this would look like an actual war photo!

    This particular figure was produced by CMK. There are two pilots in the kit, I got them from but they appear out of stock at the moment.
    You can also check here - those are the best! carries pretty good range of figures as well.
    Hobby Link Japan has few figures produced by FineMolds.

    Did you paint him, Mike? Being a veteran of painting Warhammer, that is a real nice job!

    No. When it comes to painting I'm all thumbs :roll:
    That was a custom order job....
