Banzai!…1/48 Nakajima B5N1 Type 97 Model 1 “Kate” Imperial Japanese Navy
After the Sonia, here´s my dad´s second contribution to the Empire of Japan group build.
This time an early version of the Kate bomber in an unusual and rare camo scheme, operated by the 12th Flying Group over southern China in 1939.
Hasegawa kit, Eduard seatbelts, camo done with MRP Silver, Tamiya XF-52 Flat Earth and Gunze H59 IJN Green. The decals of this specific kit weren´t good. Tended to tear apart and especially the outer areas of the roundels slightly popped up again. So partly removed them again, used roundels form another Hasegawa Kate kit. The ones for the fuselage were slightly smaller so had to do some repainting too.
Antenna wires were done with EZ Line.
