Well, hey everyone, this will be my first post on this forum. Have been lurking for sometime and thought I would just share my most recent work. I don't think the kit needs an introduction . Anyways, took this kit from my cousin (who can't build it anyways), who in turn got it from SMJ (for $150!!!!). Apparently its from the 48th All Japan Hobby Show and the only thing different about it is the decals. A waste of money if you ask me, but I didnt pay for it and I love Ranka!
For this build, I did some minor mods, such as drilling some holes, detailed chest vents and parts of the wings, and added a part for the landing gear, which I was originally going to make it retractable, but didn't have a clue how. The metallics are also brighter than they appear in the pic. Also, I forgot to paint the canopy until i finished taking the pics, so the last pic is after I painted it. Anyways, this was a really fun build for me so enjoy!
Sorry if the pics are too big (don't know how to make em into thumbnails) and if this is in wrong section.
