Group build of the Nate.

 My good buddy Anton has created a new air combat game using 1/72 aircraft.  The game is called Red stars and Rising sun.  The period is 1937 China- Japanese war.   Anton me interested in the game. Next stop was digging through my stash of buried kits.   To my luck I found three Nates that have been sitting on the shelf of doom.  They cost 3.25 ea. That will tell you how old these kits are.  More to come as working on them


Here are a few in progress pictures.

The Nate standing on its own legs. 


The metal washer is for attaching the flight stand with magnet.
