Here's a build feature by Jean-Luc Formery (TedMamere) of Hasegawa's 1/48 Kawasaki Ki-45 Toryu. The model is presented in a diorama setting with many accessories from different manufacturers (Eduard, Fine Molds, Mark58, Tamiya etc...)

WOW! Very nice, from the opening banner,which is very cool by the way to the last photo. The build is excellent,the dio looks busy and the photography is right on. I think good photos really add to the presentation and really shows the build well. Good lighting is KEY. Thank you for showing your lighting set up. Where did you get your backround photo? Again, great job, Wingman out.

Hi all,

Thanks for your kind words.

I never really found the time to publish it but I had to do it for you at least since you wanted to do the same aircraft. The paper article was in Replic, not in TMM.

Hi Jean-Luc

could be a Chinese mag ... unreadable for me .... still the Toryu is one of your best OOB projects!

For those who want to know more; here is the link to the original thread:
