Tamiya 1:48 Mitsubishi J2M3 “Raiden”

September 22, 2018 · in Aviation · · 9 · 2.5K

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).
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).
