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!
