So the outpour of pleasant comments about the Nell made me feel confident that I did an ok job on the Jake too. However, I did make the same boo-boo with the cockpit on the Jake as I did with the Nell. If I have learned anything from you guys, it’s that I am a psycho about it and it’s ok. The Jake’s cockpit is a little better though.
All that aside, I like this one. I used the same salt technique for the Jake and I am just as happy with the effect. Hasegawa did well with this kit. The addition of the catapult was a great way to display this kit. It also provides a little more visual as well as administer some insight as to how these airplanes operated.
The build itself went along as I had hoped. No issues to report. From the clipping of the parts to the final pictures, the Jake was pretty painless. I should have put a little more effort into the cockpit. Lesson learned for the future! I haven’t had three strikes yet so I am still in it.
