Aichi E31A Jacky
« on: February 11, 2019, 07:53:29 am »
My Fokitsubishi model is not finished but I start a new one (as plastic 1/144 is more easy than resin 1/72): Aichi E13A Jake (Minicraft 1/144), that I will transform, mainly removing struts and nose propeller, and changing tailplanes into fins on the booms/floats.

Now the tailplanes became fins on the floats that became booms:

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
