DanW Posted September 8, 2019 Share Posted September 8, 2019 This is the Doyusha 1/144 B-1B (Academy). Basically out of the box. Painted with Hataka and Gunze. First of all I messed this one up heavily . Not sure exactly how but the paint mist entered the cabin (most likely through the nose gear bay holes) and there is some kind of dust on the canopy inner surface. I almost flight tested her from the 5th floor once I pulled the masks off. I tried to clean it by drilling a small hole in the gear bay but it was too small for any cotton swab. Finally I over tinted the canopy to fade the dust a little but it didn’t help much. So at the end of the day I gave up on farther weathering and just finished her as is. I was so frustrated that I even skipped the nav lights. Nevertheless this is not an easy kit by any means. Forward fuselage fit is very bad and I had to use a lot of epoxy putty. Engine cowls are a nightmare. Thanks for watching. Dan Quote Link to post Share on other sites
