Hasegawa 1/32 Ki-61

By Dejan Lukic

After the Revell Spitfire Mk II, I decided to tackle some Japanese stuff. Since I consider the Ki-61 a Japanese Messerchmitt no wonder I chose that one.

The model is well known so I can only say great job Hasegawa! As usual with their kits everything went smooth without the slightest hint of problem during construction.

Since this was my first try with NMF I was really freaked out. I chose to try Vallejo metal colors. While I had no problem spraying them on Vallejo black primer, I experienced problems with their own Metal Gloss coat. It just refused to dry so I had to put the model for almost a month on a side (still a little sticky but could not wait any longer). Made a lot of mistakes but I can live with them, next one will be better.
