Mitsubishi F1M2 Observation Seaplane Type 11

August 19, 2017 · in Aviation · · 20 · 2.5K

1/48th scale F1M2 Zero Observation Seaplane type 11 "Pete"
With this kit I used the separate Photo-Etched parts set from Hasegawa.
The set included, bracing wires, instrument panels, gunsights and bomb fins.
The seat belts are from Eduard.
I painted the model with Tamiya acrylic. Artist gouache was used for weathering.

  1. Striking rendition, Julian...I like it.

  2. Beautiful! Looks like it´s flying in formation with itself.

  3. Beautifully done, Julian. It looks ready to go back into the water to take off for its' next mission!

  4. Very nice, Julian.

  5. Beautiful. I was unaware Hasegawa made one of these in 1:48

  6. This is a beauty ! I was wondering if you had any problems with it during the build ? I have two of these that are working their way closer to the top of the build pile... I really like yours !

  7. Very nice! I just realized I don't have one of these in my stash, and am going to have to pick one up (1/72 - Fujimi makes one...).
