SCALE MODEL AIRCRAFT

Independent thinking and cultural diversity in scale modelling

100 YEARS OF JAPANESE AVIATION - Ueno Exhibition

1/25 Ishikawajima R-3 (trainer - 1930)

Fortunately the Japanese Aviation world is not only made of green things with hinomarus on them and silly names given by another nation as may be suggested during most modeling events. A good way to take this into account was to attend the temporary exhibition which was held 26 Oct 2010 - 6 Feb 2011 at the Ueno Park's Museum of Science and Nature - Tokyo, in order to commemorate one century of Japanese aviation, where an interesting collection of superb models (mostly 1/25 scale or larger) covering all periods could be seen along with many documents and artifacts.

My thanks to Shinichi Miwa for his help to identify some aircraft.
