1/72 Tamiya N1K1-Ja Kawanishi Shiden

March 8, 2017 in Aviation

Just finished this one up today. It is painted with Tamiya acrylics and weathered a bit with silver pencil, oils and pastels. It is pretty much OOB. I drilled out the gun barrels and added an antenna wire from Uschi super fine rigging thread. The aircraft depicted is from the Yokosuka Naval Air Group.

  4. I didn’t realize this was a 1/72 scale plane until I saw the last picture with the plane inverted sitting on paint jars !!!!!

    Very nice…………………. I like it.

  5. Great job. Ditto on the scale, thought it was larger.

  6. Nice job Geoffrey, especially in that scale.
