Fine Molds 1/72 Kyushu Q1W1 “Lorna”
The Lorna was an anti-submarine aircraft used by the Japanese in WW2. Obviously a close copy of the Ju-88, the Lorna could be equipped with both radar and MAD (Magnetic Anomaly Detection). This is a great kit that was a dream to build. I tried some weathering techniques using artist’s oil paint and mineral spirits to simulate faded and salt-stained paint. I built this kit for the Empire of Japan Group, but wanted to add a quick post here. If you want a full description of the build, you can find it in the EoJ Group. Cheers, and everyone stay safe.
