Fujimi 1/72 Aichi B7A1, Ryusei Grace
Ryusei due to its long development never reached its intended role as carrier bomber. Very large plane with inverted gull wings is certainly interesting as modelling subject.
Fujimi’s kit is tipical mid-’80s, with subtle engraved details, but with very poor interior detail. I scratched some details in the cockpit and wheel wells and added Tamiya tape for seat harnesses. Gunze IJN Gray and Green paints were used, with chipping done with steel brush and kitchen scrubbing wire. Interesting results but a bit hard to control.
