Zoukei-Mura 1/32 Ho 229 "Yellow 4" KG(J) 6

By Tom Wilson

Here is the Zoukei-Mura Horten 229 out of the box, in the markings of KG(J) 6. This kit is an amazing feat of engineering, and I highly recommend it. This was a build that, for most of it, I didn't want to end. How common is that? I only ran into a setback when I applied a thinner-based wash; the plastic that ZM uses is clear to give you an option to see the interior. This resulted in cracking and fissuring through the clearcoat, paint, and plastic. I was 97% finished with the build and put the model aside for over a year. I resuscitated it recently, and you can see my build log in the forums.
