Sky Pirates of the Nullarbor Coast: Kawanishi H6K5 (finished pics pg9)

(1/31) > >>

Before Captain Fat Hamster's flagplane was his Handley Page Henfield Triplane it was an armed airship.  But more of that in the future.
When the Henfield got too long in the tooth he replaced it with a heavily modified Kawanishi H6K5...

The starting point.

Arrrrrh!!  :thumbsup:

Splice the mainbrace!

I have begun.  I have glued the cockpit bulkheads to the cockpit floor.  Arrrrgh.
Upon opening the parts bag I found 3 out of 4 props broken.  Oh no.  Whatever will I do.  I can't possibly render the build inaccurate by using these bigger diameter, wider bladed Lancaster props from my "engines and props" tub... :mellow:
Given the basic level of Hasegawa's interior parts I think I will borrow stuff from an Airfix Shackleton (which will never be seen inside it anyway).
