The Betty looks as though it was just removed from the airfield. Excellent finish and model building.

Nice looking G4M, I like the attention to detail. Slightly heavy on the panel lines, but that may have to do with the bright lighting. Build quality looks solid. 9.

Excellent workmanship in every aspect...weathering, fit and finish and in particular the very well done canopy framing.

A definite solid 9.5 for me the only possible issue being the exact hue of Mitsubishi Green

Well Done Sir !

Definitely a 9 (9.5 or more really). A lot of effort in this build and it shows on the final product. Well done.

A very nicely finished model with excellent detail around the cockpit and the gun stations! Overall an 8+ mainly because the green seems a bit too light. There are a few other points I'd like to comment. The weathering is expertly done but in my view there is too much of it, even for a late-war lesser maintained Betty. I also have doubts about brown propeller spinners in the IJN, but that's my personal opinion.

This a fantastic model let down by mediocre photography. The open canopy, the detailed guns and the overall weathering is absolutely fantastic considering the scale. Yes 9+

I built this one as a teenager. Now she rests in a model graveyard waiting for resurection. I like your result very much. One of my favorites here. 9.5!
