    Thanks for compliments :)

    B-Manic asked:
    Yes, it's rings of brass wires 0,2 mm, good looking but not realistic :(
    If I start Aki now, I won't make it.

    The grey area of the deck is from the kit with nothing added. For the brown part I made brass batten from brass wire 0,2 mm glued in the gaps. The gaps were cut out with scalpel.

    Flying boat Kawanishi H8K 'Emily', one of the biggest aircrafts of WW II. Even in 1:200 scale is big (14 cm lenght, 19 cm width)

    Hi Leszek,
    very good built you have done!
    Is it possible to do it as a waterline ship?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks Edi

    Every ship can be build as waterline cardmodel, Akitsushima too. Yuo may cut off the underwater part of any ship kit, if you wish.
