Below are three images of my Hasegawa 1/48 Mitsubishi J2M3 "Raiden" (Jack) in captured US markings, as my entry in the ‘Opposites Attract’ contest. The model was built several years ago, and the decals were self-made (though Hasegawa later released a version with the same markings). The model was built out-of-box and finished in various shades of Alclad. Despite its age the Jack remains one of my favourite models, though I noticed while photographing it that one of the wingtip lights has gone AWOL…

An very clean looking build!
A nice build! I like the subtle differences between the panels. 4.9
Excellent build, I like the difference shades that makes it very realistic.! 4.8
"I noticed while photographing it that one of the wingtip lights has gone AWOL…"
I hate it when they do that.
The Jack looks so nice when done in natural metal, clean and crisp looking, as is this model. I vote 4.8.
Very nice build. 4.7
A beautiful model and indeed very clean. Just a little stain, e.g. around the exhausts, would make it perfect, but I'm overdoing my search for perfectionism... 5.0!
Thanks for the kind comments, much appreciated. In US markings the Jack looks like it could be a distant cousin of the P-47.
Berautiful Natural metal finish ...Great attention to detail
I love it! The photos too are absolutely brilliant. 5.0
