Tamiya 1:48, Mitsubishi Isshirikko type 11 G4M1 “Betty”
March 13, 2013 in Aviation
This one I’ve build a couple of years ago. Tamiya did a very great job on this one! It was a nice plane to build. Bought the Eduard mask for the canopy, blisters and tailgun parts but it was a PITA. They were thick and peeled of after applying ( it was the old green vinyl stuff from Eduard). I used them as a template to cut my own from masking tape.
They kit is painted with Tamiya acrylics, IJN Grey, IJN Green, Lemon yellow with a drop of red for the IFF. Props are sprayed with Revell enamel silver, chipping is done with Revell silver. Exhaust pipes are painted with various “rusty” colours, exhaust stains are sprayed with Revell black ,brown, mud and sand colours.
