Mitsubishi F1M2 "Pete" by Jean Barby

Here are some pics of my latest build which depicts a "Pete" from the 958Ku. I was inspired by the pic on page 97 of Pacific Profiles Vol 8 from J. Claringbould and all markings were done with masks. This Kokutai created in Dec 42 went to fight hard in the Southern seas with heavy losses of both planes and crews, until it was transferred back to Rabaul where it remained until the end. The very nice Hasegawa kit in 1/48 is OOB, I only did the riveting.
