Modeling the Airfix B5N2 Kate

I am in the middle of building the Airfix B5N2 Kate.  While this is an almost an OOB build, I have looked at available reference.  By far, the best is the  Kagero book on the Kate (#79), with the FAOW #32 on the Kate as the second, though if you have the Kagero book, you will have almost all of the photos from the FAOW #32.  If you are going to detail the cockpit, the Mikesh book on Japanese Aircraft Interiors is a must.  I am waiting for some decals from Hannants,, and will update you further.

A new video from Evan.  As I have told him, even though I don’t do model railroading, I learn a lot from his videos on that subject.

I love WWII history.  Another story I didn’t know.  Also, I have a kit of this aircraft.

Look at what we have here.  The biggest question this raises is how did Border Models get the molds?  Inquiring minds want to know.

This is the kit that Mike mentioned on the episode of The Scale Model Podcast that he and I were recently on.  I agree with Mike, this is a must have.
