JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 BOX PACKAGE I will make a 1/144 scale airplane plastic model after a long time. This time it’s Platz’s Texan trainer aircraft T-6. This means that the Air Self-Defense Force and the Maritime Self-Defense Force have a lineup of Texans in the series called Japan’s Wing Collection 4 of the F-Toys confect. There are a lot of kinds in this series called F-Toys confect. It contains a mint gum, so it’s a kind of candy toy. When I looked at the website, there were many other things such as warships and tanks. It was overwhelming.

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 MAKING If you could buy a colored finished product for about 500 yen at that time, why would I buy an unpainted model? I’m a modeler and I like to build a plastic model, so I bought it. If I can get it with various kinds of candy toys, I thought it would be good to buy and line it up without forcing myself to make it. The number of parts is small, and it comes with a display for decoration of flight conditions. It seems that you can choose from 2 types depending on the type of canopy you make.

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 MAKING I bought this kit a long time ago, but the decal is still beautiful and fine.

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 MAKING There is nothing to be called an assembly, so I will wait and see while painting little by little. Is the quality of the plastic somewhat like vinyl chloride? The material is a little sticky if you cut it with a nipper. I can file without any problem.

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 MAKINGI painted the inside color of the airplane, it might be better to paint the front of the cockpit with flat black. I tried covering it with a canopy, and the canopy of this aircraft is rather big, it doesn’t look very detailed inside.

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 PAINTING I painted the engine black and then dry-brushed it with silver.

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 PAINTING This Texan has a lot of canopy frames and is thin and difficult to paint, so I thought that if I diluted the masking sol with water and poured it only into the glass part, at first I could mask it well, but it didn’t work. For now, I will mask the whole canopy and think about it later. I guess I have to apply it with a thin brush while using masking tape. It’s a hassle to paint both the interior and exterior colors of the fuselage.

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 PAINTING It’s better to fill the hole for the display at the bottom of the plane by myself.

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 PAINTING It is better to paint this airplane with white before blowing yellow.

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 PAINTING The decal is too fine to stick. It can’t be helped. If there is a gap or missing part, I will adjust it by painting later. The process of applying decal is not much different from the 1/48 scale. If we don’t pay attention to details in this area, it will be the same as confect toys, so on the contrary, it is a good thing for a person who likes plastic model building.

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 PAINTING Attempted to paint the canopy frame with the interior color of the aircraft. I can’t really recognize it.

JASDF TRAINER AIRCRAFT T-6 TEXAN PLATZ 1/144 PAINTINGEven though it’s a 1/144 scale, I think it will be more precise if I add some inking effect in the panel lines. But I’m getting worried.

When I see candidate Biden’s speech, I don’t feel any ambition from it. Even if he has dementia, it is very dangerous to become a president. But this is usually the case with presidents of large companies and organizations. I think Trump is the type of person who can count profits and losses and act rationally. If a nuclear war were to break out, it would have been during this kind of senile president… Are there any young, talented candidates?
