    Glued the cannons to the wing after they were resined. The barrels are soft aluminum and easily bent or straightened if needed. They are off a little in the pictures because they need to...

    All the primer was sanded off including all the areas around the fillets. Now everything blends in like it's a fiberglass fuse. The tail/fin area looks great. I made up a set of cannons for the wing....

    Work has been progressing somewhat slowly. I've been real busy and the airplane is over at Gerry's house. When he needs a break from his precision, tedious work of scrimshaw, he works on this for me....

    Sorry it's been so long. Lots going getting the yard ready for winter and work. Gerry has done some work on the tail for me. Fin has been squared and glued on. Some very light bondo in seam areas and...

    Thanks Chad. Lots going on these past few days and upcoming week, so work time on this has been on the light side. A hour or two here or there, that's it. Will glue on the vert fin and fin fillet...

    Today's work. Added the bondo to all the edges then sanded it down. Cleaned all the hinge holes up on the flaps and ailerons and installed them for trial fit. Glued on the stab after checking all....

    Here's the fairings epoxied on with all the tape removed. All the edges sanded and the plastic roughed up a little for some bondo to blend the edge all around. Work was done yesterday.

    Glued the clear plastic wing fairing on today and the canopy is epoxied on and is completely finished other than painting the outside canopy framework. We use plastic polish to clean up and clear up...

    Went away for the weekend but here's what we got done on Friday. Gerry finished painting the pilot and he came out incredible. Very life like and at just 1/8th. The bottom of the cockpit got the...

    Gerry worked more on the pilot and just has a small amount to go. Really looking lifelike now. Look at the last picture which shows the pilot in the "before" state. Made up a seat back out of...

    Here is some more photos of the canopy on the border. You can see inside the canopy how little shows of the border. I used a round tool bit in the dremel to work the inside edge. The whole thing is...

    Here is the canopy border made out of auto body filler. It is all done ready for the canopy to be glued to it. Here is some pictures of the pilot in it's initial stages of paint. While the facial...

    Hi Don,
    I am currently working with one of my business vendors who ships containers of equipment here to the US from Japan. Some things going through my mind if there is enough interest here...

    I once heard is said: "A Royal kit is a box of balsa in which one carves and sands a plane out of".

    I agree Andy. It seems like Mr. Tangiku has the same sort of pride that Mr. Marutaka had when designing these aircraft. You can see quality in these kits like the Royal/Marutaka kits had. Separate...

    While looking for some paint schemes for the new Ki84 Hayate I found this one. Pretty easy to paint yet it's got a cool effect. Definitely different.

    I'll get some pictures of the body filler border once it's done. It is something Gerry came up with and it works super especially on a scale canopy where you don't want anything showing including...

    Started on the cockpit area today now that the fuse glassing and spot putty is all done. We make up a border of automotive body filler at the base of the cockpit area. This allows us to epoxy the...

    The "Frank" has arrived! It came double boxed and not a dent in the cardboard which is amazing considering it came through the USPS. It was held by the USPS for almost 2 days in NY or I would have...

    Well the Frank didn't arrive yesterday but this morning I got notified by email that it was out for delivery. 4 days from Japan to my door! Can't get better than that. Pictures coming soon.

    Finished all the spot putty sanding and the touch up resining. You can see the small areas where the red spot putty remains in the low spots and areas where the 2nd coat of resin didn't quite fill...

    I am currently talking with one of my company's vendors who ships machinery from Japan to MN, USA. He is going to find out about putting some kits in their container. I might actually consider buying...

    Sounds like the Marutaka Texan that was sold by Circus Hobbies years ago. 72.5" span for a 1.20fs

    Got a message this morning from Japan Post that my "Frank" has left Tokyo International Airport and headed here to the US. Fast service. Now lets see how fast the USPS is with it!

    It's listed as 5 channel, 6 servos. Float plane so no retracts. I assume the builder in the video either didn't put them in or the pilot never deployed them.
