Mitsubishi A6M2 Tinian Kokutai by Jean Barby

Here are photos of my latest work. An A6M2 from the Tinian Kokutai based in Lae in May 42. I have been inspire by the excellent book «Eagles of the southern skies», a must read day to day account of the struggle in New-Guinea skies. The black stripe is for the 4th Chutai, and the plane has been donated to the Navy by private donators. I have done all the markings using my silhouette portrait so NO decals there. The Ameiro varnish is home made: 60% Gunze h-70 RLM02, 35% of Sail color and 5% of white. Cockpit is from SBS and the model is from Hasegawa fully riveted.
Allez les Bleus!

Great work as always Jean! Is the canopy aftermarket or from Hasegawa? It looks very thin.

Thanks,

A beautiful model indeed! One question: what do you mean for "silhouette portrait"? Thanks

Very nice! There are so many variations that decal companies don't cover, having a way to make your own stencils is a good idea. Something I need to look into....
