Tamiya 1:48 Mitsubishi J2M3 “Raiden”

This is my latest finished model.
It was brushpainted using Revell acrylics, using Black Green 40 for the upper sides and Light Grey Satin 371 for the undersides (which was a pain to paint because satin doesn´t have a grip as strong as matt paint).
Tamiya decals worked fine by using hot water as a way to remove them from the backing paper, and conformed to most of the panel lines (except for the aileron hinges).
