Mitsubishi F1M2 “Pete
December 31, 2013 in Aviation
This is another right out of the box build even using the kit decals. It is of a “Pete” that was in the Solomon Islands about January 1943. I have no information on the specific Senti but the kit lists the crewmen. They were NAP 4/C Ryoji Asanuma and NAP 1/C Michiho Takarada. I will take them at their word. I built this because I like the airplane and it looked like it would be fun to build. It was an absolute pleasure to put together. The fit was excellent and it is very precisely engineered. I would highly recommend this to anyone that likes Japanese airplanes.
I put the last picture in just to see if it comes out. It is of the Hasagawa 1/48 “Rufe” I built this for a gentleman and this is the only photo I have of it.
A very Happy New Year to all and a well earned “shout out” to Martin for all the work he is doing to bring like minded modelers from all over the World together. This is one fabulous site. Thank you.
