1/48 Fine Molds Mitsubishi A7M1 Reppu “Sam”
After a long time, I would like to present one of my recent complete model.
The Mitsubishi A7M1 Reppu code Sam.
This kit represents the prototype version of this airplane. Not many of them were built before the end of the second World War. Kit goes together with no real pain, the fit was perfect. Painted using mainly Tamiya X-7 orange mixed with Tamiya XF-3 flat yellow. Weathering was done using Flory models Grime wash all over it. I try to keep weathering to the minimum due to the prototype version. Engine smoke has done using Tamiya X-19 smoke with a little of engine gray. I think that’s it. Hope you enjoy it. [smile]
