    Hi all,
    I'm starting this new thread to show You my little progress building the Kancho's Kawanishi N1K1 Kyofu (Rex).

    I made a mistake and I started 3 threads about this subject in the Parts bin section under Aviation and Aircraft forum: Could some administrator delete those threads and keep only this one?
    Thanks a lot.

    And here some picture about the model that I already posted


    and then some small step ahead


    in the background my next project ....;-)

    Best, Nando :grin: :D

    I saw one of these planes displayed at the Nimitz museum at Fredricksburg, Texas about 1986 or so...it is rather big and a real strong-looking plane! I have a model of the Kancho plane also...and would like to build it one of these days...it looks like a real nice model of this often neglected plane...

    Thanks ...

    Thank You all for your kind comments: I need them, this is my first aircraft model and it isn't so satisfying, such the real space model that I did. :(

    But I want to complete the model, and to accumulate experience for more challenging model like P-47, Tempest, Super Corsair I bought from you Shoki2000, and to emulate Your expertise Airbob so I can build in the future Your wonderful KC-135 Stratotanker.

    I started with this model because I always love the seaplanes and I think that in the future I'll build some more of them, like Kingfisher, A6M2N Rufe Floatplane I saw in this Forum.

    I'll keep You informed about my sluggish progress.

    Best, Nando :-D

    The canopy looks great. It takes practice to get the process consistent.

    ....finally completed

    And the N1K1 at last completed !!!! :-D

    It's a good model and the first aircraft model for me.
    So I considered this model as a learning model, but I think that the final result is good enough.

    And now I can go haed to another build: the Surfduke beautiful Apollo CM.

    Best Nando :)

    Nice, I really like that dolly for moving the aircraft on land.
