A suicide attack weapon Ohka (cherry blossom). I think such weapon shouldn’t be used even if applicants were there. One of the weapons I’d like to forget it, but which should never be forgotten. It’s too regrettable that a possibility of the survival rate zero. At least, it should have been the mechanism that a seat was fired several seconds before the collision.

Plastic models displayed in Udvar Hazy Center

I took a picture during a toilet break. Plastic models were also displayed. Maybe they are not plastic, solid models.

Restoration Hanger in Udvar Hazy Center

I could observe the Restoration Hanger over the glass. It’s quite large.

bomber B-25 Mitchell Restoration Hanger in Udvar Hazy Center

Judging from the cockpit shape and the main wing, this is probably the bomber B-25 Mitchell. They seem to be making 1/1 scales of plastic model, and it seems fun. If it’s a hobby, it’s the last hobby, isn’t it?

Engines and the wheels, Hanger in Udvar Hazy Center

Engines and the wheels can be seen.

observation deck in UDVAR-HAZY CENTER

There is an observation deck in UDVAR-HAZY CENTER and sees a control tower of the Dulles International Airport over there.

From the observation deck, you can see a lot of aircraft passing in preparation for landing.

All the exhibits are indoors and the condition is very good. There are lots of detailed explanations and I do not get bored. I was very missing leaving in a few hours. I wanted to watch them about 2 days if possible.
(26-May-2016)

I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
