“The One-shot Lighter” Mitsubishi G4M Betty
January 22, 2013 in Aviation
“The One-shot Lighter” is a one of the name given by Allied pilots for Mitsubishi G4M Betty because of their tendency to explode or catch on fire from any slight damage to the wing fuel tanks after being hit .
Model built as S.F.B of Tamiya 1/48 kit. I used heavy gauge self adhesive metal foil tape to simulate rivets and extra panel lines . After covering all over I used Tamiya and Gunze Sangyo acyrlics . Rubbing with fine sandpaper to remove some paint was easier than adding silver chipping. Anyway it was funny trial.
