PS: The work desk is maybe more than 90 years old. My mother's high school female classmate's husband was a graduate of the Naval Academy of Japanese Imperial Navy. He used this desk when he studied for the entrance examination at his age of 13 to 16. He gave it to me more than ten years ago. Today was happened to be his third death anniversary. Rest in peace, Mr. Taketsugu.

Very cool story!

And the gun wracks look great

I needed a very thin aluminum sheet for the additional panel with rivets for detailing. There was no such thin aluminum at any shop so I used the aluminum can for this. That was about 0.1 mm thick. Yes, the aluminum can is useful but for very limited purposes. :D




:love: Ship him to me!:lol:
Why cats love those cardboard boxes?
Once I asked one of my cats and it said.
It's warm inside and faintly smells like 'Matatabi'

Sukiyaki Japan!? What did you buy?!?! :D
blimey so much since I last looked in on you Katsu...
The rifles are brilliant and great idea to extend the seats out, and wow on those padded seats out of food packing...
Talking of packing - how many tins of Budweiser did you have to drink to construct your craft? :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
The Sukiyaki box was from a seller on Amazon UK, based in Japan - of which I bought my Bandai Star Wars (see pic)

they were the cheapest and fastest out of all the JPN sellers
I'm seeing snow on the news hitting your country, have you had any yet?

Really fine work Katsu-san! Oh, so looking forward to the painting of the soldiers compartment! I do love the look of primer in the morning! Primer coat and Katsu crafting update addition fix at the same time? That will be a good day!

That work bench has a rich heritage. I can appreciate the sentiment it would carry for me as some of my crafting tools were passed to me from my grandpa. I think of him each time I use them. A nod of honor to your friend Mr. Taketsugu.

And don't worry about patent infringement on the foam edge rounding technique. Patent ran out long ago and its public domain now. :lol:

Hey Chuffster, I like your picture of your Bandai Star Wars collection. Somehow your SR-71 (one of my favorite planes) fits right in!

Cheers Hagoth, thank you for your comment, its a bit crammed with odds and ends on the shelf, but it was only supposed to be a stop-gap place for them (four years ago!)
The SR-71 model is about 40 years old, it was my brothers and has survived well. We used to visit RAF Mildenhall Airshows in the late 80's early 90's so we were lucky to see one of these fly in 1984, I also saw it fly over our school with fighter escorts, surprisingly found some of the display footage of it on the web.
On one of its low passes the vertical stabilisers were physically wobbling! An awesome aircraft and must get to visit one we have one on display at IWM Duxford, I must get down there to reminisce, happy days.
One of my favourite aeroplanes is the Vulcan, beautifully sleek and was an crowd stopper at displays
cheers

Haha! Nothing more permanent than a temporary solution!

Absolutely love air shows. Hill Air Force Base (A-10's, F-16's, F-22's, F-35's...) is about 1.5 hours north of me. Good museum with an SR-71. I agree, the Vulcan is a beautiful plane.

Thank you, Chuffy-san!

haha, no sweat! If the stocks getting low, my wife willing to quickly supply many empty cans. She is so reliable on that point.

You got a nice collection there!

Thanks for your kind care for us.
We have no snow out here. The icy wind from China get a lot of humidity when traveling down over the Japanese sea and when it hits the Japanese Alps, Gave it heavy snow on the northern coast.
Thanks to the great wall of the Japanese Alps, The snow barely seen here.

Really fine work Katsu-san! Oh, so looking forward to the painting of the soldiers compartment! I do love the look of primer in the morning! Primer coat and Katsu crafting update addition fix at the same time? That will be a good day!

Thank you, Hagoth-san!
Applying the primer would be a little later. I got to make many small things for cabin accessories.

Thanks for the kind words for the story about my desk. There are so many tools passed to me from my father so long ago. I still remember the first time when I use it with his instruction.

Phew! Thank God! Hogoth-san is not like Walt Disney!

:oops::oops::oops: !!!..., :love::love::love: !!!..., nuff said.

Thank you for looking! :love::lol:

Just...WOWZERS, Katsu-san...amazing stuff.
gedmac66 (amazing) 'stuff said

:love:Thank you, George-san!
Love it! Katsu-san, your "tiny boring build" (NOT!!!) has me captivated like a cat and a laser dot! You never cease to amaze!

With little details like this I can patiently wait for primer day. :unsure: ...maybe.

:lol:Thank you and thank you for your patience! Hagoth-san!

Pretty inspiring for a "tiny boring build"

:love:Thank you!!

If you ever get around to posting a "boring build" pic it will be the first.

Thanks always, Tom-san!:lol:


I'll need oxygen to keep up with your terrific work, loved your comment about The Great Jap Alps
...and your floor-tape-checker plate solution is wonderful (y):love:(y)

Thank you so much, Chuffy-san! Although, Jap Alps is only a 3 or 4 hours drive from my place I've never been there before. :p As I always thinking, we are living in a curious land. You spread the handkerchief on the table and pick up the center with your finger a bit. Drop a handful of peas around. That's our island. Peas are us.:lol:

My friends, thank you for your kind words. In fact, it's a very nerve-wracking task. I was so rewarded and relieved. :notworthy:

I've just remembered the rubber sheet I used when I made tires.

That's handy. Also, the surface of the rubber sheet makes those tiny parts and bits stay still on the table. No hopping and vanishing!

The build for the accessory will be finished soon and I will paint and set the seat pedestal on the floor. Then I will build the bulkhead between the soldier's compartment and cockpit and see if I can find the space to fix the commander's seat.

Thanks for looking!

Ahh, I feel my back like a hardboard. :rolleyes:

I'm impressed with how you capture the essence of the fire extinguishers with such basic shapes and pieces. I would be driven to make exact replicas at yet here you go with simplicity and there is no mistaking for what they are. :cool:
Thanks, Hagoth-san.
The secret is, never to try to build an exact replica. So that nobody can peck about the accuracy. :p But Hagoth-san, YOU should be driven to!(y)

Not much progress today but,
