June 26, 2005. Just completed my first airplane
kit in about 15 or so years. Overall I'm satisfied with the result. It's
not my best work, but it was sorta enjoyable. Sometimes it was like pulling
teeth to get me going on this project, but it's finally completed. I had
originally started this project several months, but kept pushing it off
because I just didn't want to tread unknown waters. Added to this, was
a mishap that happened today while I was taking pictures. One of my overhead
lamps fell ontop of the model and broke several of the blast shield parts.
A little glue and I was able to salvage it, but resulted in crooked struts
that hold up the blast shield plates. Enjoy the pictures, I'm sure I will
work on another plane eventually. Possibly the VE-1 Elintseeker from Macross,
another Hasegawa kit. For the progress page, click here: Ivanov
I wasn't overly satisfied with the end result of the
kit so I ended up throwing the kit away. So I no longer have the kit.
