It is a Nakajima A6M2-N 2 floatplane fighter of 1/144 scale. Sweet has obtained a new report of the U.S. military investigation, and it is a definite version kit that accurately reproduces the dimensions of the unknown point.
For some reason, I finished painting the water decoration table first. I might do the white dry brush a bit more. I am planning to paint the fighters as belonging to track island and Maikor Island in Indonesia, so I made a shade like an emerald green which imaged the south island. I blew blue and green based on Mr. crystal’s color tourmaline green. I purchased crystal colors a few years ago, but I did not have any opportunity to use them in my modeling. It is a surprisingly good transparent feeling.
Nakajima A6M2-N is completed. It is a water plane based on Zero. Because it is splashed from the propeller at boarding time, the pilot gets on and off the starboard. By the way, Sweet’s box character also hangs up on the right-side ladder.
The lower side of the aircraft was light gray-green, and the No.3 air-to-air bomb painted a line of silver. It was easy if Sweet made the silver line decals, but is it too difficult to paste the tiny seal?
A lightning mark is added to this fighter, and the propeller spinner is red. By the way, both fighter’s propellers fronts are painted in silver, but the backside is matte black. The reason is not to be disadvantageous to the pilot by a shiny reflection.
Mini-scale airplanes are small and look easy to finish, but it’s not easy. As the adhesive protrudes, it gets dirty immediately, and fine masking is difficult. It is small enough to put on my palm, it is interesting the sense of precision is tremendous.
I bought this kit a couple of years ago, compared with the price range of the previous 1/144 kit, even if it entered two aircraft, it was expensive at a price. Of course, there are no complaints about details and molds.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
