1/48 J2M3 Raiden from the Hasegawa kit

January 7, 2020 · in Aviation · · 16 Comments

Hi all.

This was number six for the year and the final one for 2019. The . I started this one almost two years ago however a disaster at the painting stage shelved it for almost 18 months. I picked it up about three weeks ago and finished on New Years eve. I chopped open the canopy, added ResinArt wheels and exhausts, painted the roundels and used Aeromaster decals for stencils and ancillary markings. I really enjoyed the dinged up green on this one. There's so much scope for weathering with Japanese WW2 era subjects and this is a great subject to apply it to.

Happy New Year and safe 2020 to all.
