Tamiya 1/72 Aichi M6A1-K Nanzan – Seiran Kai
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”.
Tamiya acrylics were used…Orange with a touch of Red-Brown added in. Enjoy the photos.
