Try some Mr. Mark Setter and Mr. Mark Softer on them decals. They work fabulously.



Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, I can't get those products in India. But, I'll put it on my shopping list for my upcoming trip to Singapore.

About 99% complete. Just need to add the antenna wire and position lights.

Sitting on it's gear and the engine installed. Unfortunately, the engine fit is not very good. No matter what I tried, I just could not get it to fit flush. But, got it close.






The 20mm canon and the tool for operating the main gear.


Staring down the business end


Engine cowl installed


Canopy and propeller added


Fuel tank installed

Progress continues. The gun sight, using the Eduard pe parts, is installed. The forward canopy is also installed.










Time to start applying all those stencil decals (and there are a lot ).

Realized I needed to complete a few more items before painting the fuselage. The wingtips and main landing gear are complete and installed. The gear set-up is very toy-like. It doesn't fit as well as it should. Now, I can get to the painting.

Main and tail gear






Installed

with my eto campaign done i;m ready to get started on the pearl harbor campaign
this is the kit i am thinking of doing. several issues though
1. the instructions are in japanese anywhere i can get english?
2.i would really like to find a decal sheet of pearl harbor raiders from a vendor in the usa. i want to to a plane that was shot down in the attack.
3. most important, if anyone could suggest. what paint mix to use for the amiro color. i have seen results with MM IJN grey and floquil railroad concrete. but floquil is not made anymore. other concretes look to light. any suggestions?

Mark,

I have no issue with keeping your previous posts on Armorama. I would ask that you keep your updated posts on model shipwrights from this point forward.

All that being said, amazing work. The level of detail and the clean painting is amazing. Looking forward to seeing some more.

I guess I've been posting my build progress in the wrong forum. I wasn't aware there were other sections other than Armorama. Not sure if there is a way to move my posts to this forum.

Christian,

Amazing work. I can only hope that I can make the 1/350 Shokaku look half as good as you have in 1/700 scale. I cant imagine how you do it.

Looking forward to seeing more as she comes together

Hello,

sorry for none reply the last time. But I had to finish some other projects.
I came to the point where I daded the flight deck on my Shokaku and painted it.
I also added most of the flight deck markings.
















I also finished the Zeros and startet with the first six Vals.
Again these are the lion roar planes with Fly Hawk pe.







Greetings Christian
