I started working on this model back in September. I was very busy during the school year because I was taking some tough classes this year, I have a job and worked after school and on the weekends, and I bought my first car which I've spent many many hours working on for the past several months. Now I have some more time to spend paper modelling and will hopefully finish this plane within the next few days because I am very anxious to start building Halinski's D3A1 Aichi Val.
This isn't really a full build report so I will keep it in the Gallery section. I had hoped to take more pictures today showing the engine, finished cockpit, and landing gears, but my camera battery went dead after just three. I will hopefully take more and post them within the next few days.
Right now the wings and engine are still dry fitted into place. I still need to make the left landing gear, the prop, the canopy, and finish up some small details like the lights, machine guns, and antenna. You can still see the small flap of fuselage near the rear landing gear that needs to be glued.
