Beautiful, perhaps a thin white line on the air intake of the cowling ? On the original withe lines on the horizontal tail seems not to be full .

Very nice! Always thought the B6N was a stout looking aircraft.

Oups I have forgotten to send Georgesw a few lines about this aircraft which was boarded on the Zuikaku before the Battle of the Philippines sea. Tere are two pics of this aircraft taking off from the carrier deck. As often during the training period the Kanji symbol draw with chalk in the hinomaru reminded the crew about the pilot'name. I have used a Squadron clear canopy to show the nice interior embellished with the relatively old Eduard set. All markings are done with masks, so no decals here, and the paints used are from the Mr Color range, Nakajima Green and Grey. best regards from France, and sorry Pierre no white line on the picture!

This is a really nice build and finish. I have no criticism, only a question.
Were the wheel wells so heavily covered in the blue "Aotake",so as to be almost metal flake.?

kind regards AJ

The canopy was well worth it. One of the best Jills I have seen so far!
