My first post for the last Navy fighter will be the Kawanishi N1K1. The Hasegawa kit is a very good base to start with. The cockpit can be improved, I did, but now Aires has a very nice set for that. Riveting the plane was also an improvement of the overall appearance, but the part where you really need to work is the undercarriage legs with all the complicated hydraulic lines to duplicate. Solder wire is very helpful there. I did my own mixture for the Kawanishi green giving it a more blue shade. The plane belongs to the 341 Kokutai which was wiped out during the Philippines campaign.
