Pkf.85 Falke with ‘Third-Eye’
This is the Hasegawa 1/20 Pkf.85 Falke from Kow Yokoyama’s Maschinen Krieger series aka Ma.K. The model’s basic shape is an amalgam of a Nitto (Fujimi) 1/24 Toyota S800 and a 1/32 Revell P-38 Lightning.
It is also the model that taught me on chrome removal, salt & hairspray techniques and my first venture into Abteilung Oil paints. I also improvised on the lighting of this model using an off-the-shelf electronic kits with some minor modifications. This ‘discovery’ Project took me about 6 months to complete (as I only devote a few hours a week) and I will be spreading the definitive WIP into a few articles.
Another point of note is that I used electronics to replace a physical fan design which I wanted but was too expensive and difficult to realize it. Plus, this gives me the opportunity to showcase how ‘normal’ electronics can be a solution for model lighting. But more importantly, this project also shows how one can tap power from a USB Mobile power bank.
The construction notes of this model is quite long and so, here are their chapters:
