Tamiya 1/72 Aichi M6A1-K Nanzan – Seiran Kai

November 22, 2012 · in Aviation · · 3 · 3.5K

Nice little kit, with very nice detail. Only complaints are the windscreen and canopy fit. Generally pretty poor. A little filing here and there got them both to settle down OK. I am not happy with the antennae (EZ Line). Admittedly, I rushed it a bit to finish it off.

Anyways, 2 of these aircraft were made…this is the “prototype” one. I'm sure that it wasn't weathered this much, but I wanted to play around with some techniques. I'm also not sure that the lower gear doors were used, but…I like how they look-less “spindly”.

acrylics were used…Orange with a touch of Red-Brown added in. Enjoy the photos.

  1. Nice work given the scale...I like what you did with the finish. Surprised you had trouble with the EZ line. Got mine at Bobe's in Pensacola many years ago (still using the same pkg.) - good job.

  2. Looks great, I like the panel variation and overall tone.
