Fujimi 1/72 D3A1 Type 99 Model 11 Val Dive Bomber (2 posts)

  • This is the first of the last pair I’ll be starting for the Midway Group Build. Using the Fujimi kit and Print Scale sheet 72-180, I’ll be modeling Lt Kobayashi’s aircraft in which he led 18 Val’s & 6 Zeros in IJN Hiryu’s first attack on USS Yorktown.

  • Nice choice Rick. If I manage to get the PBY and one of the F4F’s done in time I was considering building a Japanese plane. The D3A or a Kate (possibly a seaplane) is what I was looking into.

    I’ll be looking forward to seeing your updates on this one too. Thanks again for starting another one !!!!
