  1. Thanks for the response. Yes, I've read that rule-of-thumb and it seems logical. There is one image in my references of a pre-war NMF Kate that definitely has darker wheelwells suggesting aotake, but that is the only one I can find; no other images show a clear contrast in the wheelwells.
  2. Hi Jim; Thanks for your response. After some inputs from some respondents on other boards, it pretty much mirrors your thoughts. I am inclined to paint the undersides the olive gray color versus the treated NMF based on an image one respondent posted. However I'm still uncertain about the wheel wells. I agree that since the wheel wells were not exposed internal structure (like say, a Zero) that they would have been the same as the overall undersurface color. The Kates were camouflaged sometime in the Fall of 1941 in anticipation of the Pearl Harbor operatio
  3. I am about to paint a 1/48 Hasegawa B5N2 Kate from the Pearl Harbor attack, specifically AII-356... I am seeking some insight on some aspects of panting the model. I'm sure some of this has been beaten to death on this and other forums but I haven't been able to find specific answers. 1. What color was the undersides painted, or was the underside painted? There is a published b&w image of the wreckage of the plane showing the underside of the wing; my interpretation suggests that the exterior underside was unpainted/natural metal. Other resources indicate "light gray". I have th
  4. Whoa! I didn't know Eduard made one of those! Thanks for the intel and link. Gratefully, somebody has offered to send me a Tamiya Betty torpedo, but this is my back-up option. Thanks!
  5. I need a torpedo for a 1/48 scale B5N Kate. I have the Hasegawa kit with the bomb and I wish to do a torpedo-armed Pearl Harbor aircraft. I can use and torpedo from the Hasegawa kit, Tamiya Betty or even the old Nichimo Kate kit. Please contact me directly at mongo01 -at- twc -dot- com. I'll gladly reimburse shipping and nominal cost of the item. Thanks!
  6. Hi Mike; Good to hear from you! Thanks for the offer. I've already got a couple sets on the way, however, if any fall through, I'll get back with you.
  7. Hey Scott..., reply e-mail sent. Thanks!
  8. Do you have these parts laying around unused? Are you planning on replacing those kit parts with an aftermarket set and don't know what to do with the kit set? I need TWO sets of those wheels for another project (1/72 vac C-124). Please help! I'll happily pay shipping for the bits via PayPal. Please contact me off-line at mongo01 -at- twc -dot- com Thanks!

    Instructions Needed

    Thanks for the alert. Indeed they are. As mentioned above, I went to Scalemates and solicited a mate that listed the set I mentioned in his stash; he generously uploaded those instructions which I have now printed. It's a great community we are in that helps each other like this!

    Instructions Needed

    Hmmm..., Scalemates..., I hadn't thought of that. I guess I could go over there and find someone who might have the set and see if they might send me a scan... Thanks for the idea! However, I thought there was/is a website that is a dedicated repository for instruction sheets other than Scalemates.
  13. I need a copy or a scan of the instructions for the Cutting Edge detail set for the Hasegawa Typhoon Ib, CEC48131. Please e-mail direct mongo01 - at - twc - dot - com Also, I once used a website that was a storehouse for instructions. I *thought* I had it bookmarked but cannot find it. Can anyone please give me a name or link to the site? TIA Mongo
