Just a quick progress report on my hobby of model making. I decided on not starting the Junyo aircraft carrier because I wasn’t sure what colour I should paint it. Instead I decided to do a Tamiya motorcycle. I have always enjoyed these builds. I also appreciate that they supply some of the wiring for the engine.
I got the parts cleaned off and prepped for painting. I also took a good look at the instructions. I find it never hurts to look at all of the steps first. I might save you a headache in the end.
I am energized by the work I have done so far. Hopefully, I can continue without becoming discouraged.
So, I am going to build the Tamiya 1700 Junyo waterline aircraft carrier. It’s a nice little kit and I am pretty excited about it.
One small, slightly worrying snag, though. The kit art makes it seem like the ship is green. When I consulted people online, they also claimed that it was green. However, the instructions clearly call for the hull to be grey–I even checked the Japanese instructions and they agree that it should be grey.
As I reported in my last post, I was given a nanoblock kit that was purchased at Dollarama. Today was the day I decided to make it. I undertook this task as I had quite a few free minutes. It took hardly any time at all.
At 110 pieces, this is among the smallest kits I have built. A quick perusal of the instructions revealed it to be a rather straightforward build.
Here’s what comes inside the kit
I am not a huge Hello Kitty fan, but I like that there are many different things you can build. The product should appeal to many people and since there are a large number of Hello Kitty fans, it only makes sense.
It seemed to have turned out well and there were quite a few leftover pieces to go into a future build.
