Very Nice.

Has anyone built the Aerotech 1/72 J7W2? http://www.marshmodels.com/image.asp?image=images/AT72003%205%20Site.jpg. The Hasegawa version is almost non-existent except on Ebay every few months.

I have the J7W1 and would like build the J7W2 as well. Maybe a J7W3 too.

Cheers, Carl

carl drop me a pm as i produce a conversion of the J7W1 to the  W2.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Carl; yes, i used the kit of J7W2 of Marsh Models. The hardest was to modify the fuselage to get the cockpit bubble.

Martin H; search the transformation of Matt Swann in its site "Swannys models", in axis aircraft, and japanese aircraft.


All the best
