EoJ entry: The Plane that came from a Sub- Aichi Seiran
This was my joy for the last 8 weeks or so, building a kit that although not the cutting edge of today Tamyia still bears the hallmark of this brand- an easy and straightforward build.
SonI took most of that time detailing, either with some scratch parts, or just paint work in my usual “artistic” view. I won't list all the extra bits I added, but a careful look will show you many;-)
Painted with Tamyia IJN grey and Green, cockpit with my own mixes using Real Colors from AK, all markings are painted (only the manufacturers plate stencil is decal). The dolly was painted with oils for the wood effect and hull red for the body frame.
Hope you like it, I sure did and It was my first floating duck plane since I took this hobby in a more “serious” way.
Thank you to all that followed the WIP and especially to my friend Louis Gardner for his contagious enthusiasm that brought me into building this kit that lingered in my stash for 23 years or so.
