Check Squadron.com - do a search with scale + aircraft photoetch + Eduard + color detail. The Hayate set was not in stock but the prices are better than the Eduard site.

Another Japanese airplane! Hooray! (Mike already used "Banzai!")

A Halinski! And more outstanding craftsmanship and multimedia innovation.

That cockpit is truly outstanding and bids fair for a great build.

Domo arigato gozaimasu!

Thanks! I am always afraid to get my macro lens so "up close and personal" with the model, because it always highlights the mistakes and any poor craftsmanship. Some things I won't worry about because it will be covered up.

So, my eyes start to hurt a bit while working on all of the small parts in the cockpit and I need to work on something "bigger". Here are some shots of the wing construction...

This is exceptionally fine work, even for a Halinsky!

Like looking at parts of a full-sized airplane.

This is excellent work, and really fast too.

WHO ARE YOU???????
It's basically impossible to build that fast that good, unless of course you are an alien with 4 hands and no need to sleep :D

Although the Eduard parts are 1:32 scale, they seem to work perfectly in this 1:33 scale model. So far, the fit of all parts is very good - and I like the tab and slot method for the frames in this kit.
Yes, that is the idea, stretch the idea box to include other materials to turn out a true scale protypical air craft. Like what you have done. Keep up the great work.:DRick

Well, let's not get carried away. I only have 3 hands. But really, I decided to document this build only recently and the wing construction was well underway before I posted the first photos. Speed is not my goal here.
