This kit did not give me any problems.  I painted the exterior with Gunze Hobby Color
and the interior was done with Gunze Mr. Color.

The seatbelts were done with scraps of photo etch and Tamiya tape.  The antenna was done with solid plastic and the reflector for the landing lights, the shell are cut by a tea with the punch.

The decals are from Techmod Decals, Set 48070 Show a machine and the VC - 63 USS Natoma Bay (CVE 62).  The red and yellow ring on the bombs made from Tamiya tape.

Accurate Miniatures and also the new edition are beautiful model kits, no longer commercially available.
