This is the Hasegawa "Hi-Grade" 1/32 scale

The fuselage fit was beautiful. However as any D-9
fan knows, the rest of the kit can prove to be troublesome.
Since I hate sanding and filling, I took great
pains to fit the fuselage and wing joints properly. Before I glued the
fuselage together, I glued the top of the wings to each respective side
of the fuselage. This allowed me the freedom to ensure a near perfect
fit. It worked well and I did not use any putty on the wing root. It is
much easier sanding the leading and trailing edges of wings, than
filling and sanding the wing root. The rest of the kit fit well and I
moved onto painting.
The canopy turned out beautifully. I used the usual
Future dip to get that crystal clear shine. I love that stuff!
The model was painted using Gunze and Tamiya paint.
Weathering was done with artists oils and Turpenoid. I used the airbrush
The relaxed antenna is super fine speaker wire.
All in all the model took about a year to complete.
