Building the Hasegawa 1:35 kit of the YANMAR YH6115 Rice Harvester, and spending a lot of time watching youtube videos of the machine while “planting rice” in a dio! (no electronics in this one)

Build Log

just did a press-fit test of the Yanmar YH6115 rice harvester. Hasegawa kit, amazing bandai-level of fit, now it is stripped down again and in the paint booth

Amazing kit quality - this is a basic snap-fit of most parts to check for fit and alignment. Now time to take it apart again and rebuild properly

Starting a base…


The tedious process of planting my field begins..


I decided the scene needed some life - so I sculpted a disturbed Japanese crane


Pretty much there now…

YANMAR Rice Harvester YH6115 オートコンバイン

Something different … this is the Hasegawa 1:35 kit of the YH6115 harvester. Kit quality is amazing - it can almost be built without glue. I threw this together as a diversion/refresher between other projects… and then spent a few weeks “planting rice”🤣

I have now spent far too much time watching this beautiful machine in action on youtube and NHK!

This page is a web-friendly rendering of my project notes shared in the LEAP GitHub repository.

LEAP is just my personal collection of projects. Two main themes have emerged in recent years, sometimes combined:

  • electronics - usually involving an Arduino or other microprocessor in one way or another. Some are full-blown projects, while many are trivial breadboard experiments, intended to learn and explore something interesting
  • scale modelling - I caught the bug after deciding to build a Harrier during covid to demonstrate an electronic jet engine simulation. Let the fun begin..
To be honest, I haven't quite figured out if these two interests belong in the same GitHub repo or not. But for now - they are all here!

Projects are often inspired by things found wild on the net, or ideas from the many great electronics and scale modelling podcasts and YouTube channels. Feel free to borrow liberally, and if you spot any issues do let me know (or send a PR!). See the individual projects for credits where due.
