The kit is an
Hasegawa #JT70 with the addition of the Eduard set #49217 for cockpit,
flaps, seat belts and some engine details. I add also the Squadron canopy
for display in open position.
The chipped paint effect was archived by priming the model with Gunze
Mr. surfacer 1000 followed by a coat of Gunze acrylic H8 silver and
painting the model with H36 Dark Green. Once these are dried, carefully
scraping with tape or #11 blade the top coat to reveal the aluminum below.
Gunze H61 IJN gray for the undersurfaces and H63 Metallic Blue green for
the interiors of flaps and wheel-wells. All control surfaces were masked
for avoid any chipping as are fabric covered. The pitot was made with two
images below to see larger images
The marking are for the Zero of the 302nd
Naval Flying Group flow by Ensign Sadaaki Akamatsu.
My best regards.
