Hasegawa Nakajima B5N Kate

Kit 09553, folded wing version

The interior together and the fuselage buttoned up.  I was not looking forward to masking the cockpit openings and cleaning up the seams around them to do the upper deck
painting under the canopy with the finished interior installed because I always get specks and junk in there no matter what I do.  I looked at how the fuselage comes together
up front, and I realized that I could probably do all the fuselage assembly before putting in the interior "module".  There is indeed enough flex in the forward fuselage to do that,
and it really simplified assembly.  Gotta love that kind of kit "engineering".  The module just snaps in and no glue is required.  Notice how small the fuselage cockpit openings are.
