I like it A LOT!

I am presuming it is 1/72? Did two 1/72 Shindens give up their 6-bladed props?? Is it a turboprop? I don't see any engine cooling gills or exhausts (unless they are underneath).

Nice NMF, too!

Thanks to all. Yes Craig, itīs a turboprop (1/72). The exhausts are underneath. The props come from two Shinden, yes; but; donīt worry iīll use them to make two new projects: Kyushu Shinden J7W5, and.........your Fugu J9W (only for my collection of course).

You've certainly set the bar dauntingly high with this shiny beauty, Paco! Your natural-metal-fu is indeed envious!

Amazing! Turning my favorite Japanese fighter into a U.S. pusher type was a great idea in itself... but when it's so brilliantly done, I can only bow in sheer admiration! :bow: :bow: :bow:
