Brengun MXY-7 Ohka update

Y’all may not remember, but I do actually model from time to time.  I’ve been working on the Brengun MXY-7 Ohka.  Given how small it is, you would think it would take a lot less time than a larger kit.  This isn’t the case.  In any event, it is together and due to the shorter run nature of the kit, I’m having to put a little extra time in on the seams.






















Yes, the seat seems to have a slight tilt to it.  No, I am not going to fix it.

Looks like Special Hobby is moving along on their Potez 25.  I’ll be interested to see how many versions you;ll be able to build.

Brengun is going to release a Model 22.  I am currently building their Model 11.  The 22 was produced, but never used operationally.

I’ve had some interest in WWII Japanese airfield equipment lately.  Now comes good news that Brengun is doing two pieces of such equipment.  Info here and here.

Hobbyboss has announced a new A-4E for later in 2019.  Frankly this is good news as a modern tooling of an A-4E would be most welcome.

Grand Models ( a new company to me) has announced a resin Texan T Mk 1. (the modern aircraft, not the WWII trainer.)  Markings will be for the RAF, RCAF and RNZAF.

The CADs are out for this kit.  I am anxious for it.

It appears Fly is going to do a Bristol 170 in 72nd scale.  I know a lot of modelers who are fans of British 50s and 60s aviation will be happy to hear this news.

Speaking of Japanese bomb carts

My original post is here.

Here is another photo.  Note there are two distinct types of these in this photo.  I suspect their use varied with the size and weight of the bomb.  Also, the tractor in the background is interesting.

What is this?

Ok, I know WHAT it is.  It is apparently a Japanese Hanta airfield roller.  Does anyone make a kit of it in 72nd scale?  Are their drawings of it anywhere?
