Tamiya 1:48 Mitsubishi A6M3 (Captured)
This is my entry into the “The Empire of Japan 1919-1946 GB” This aircraft was restored to flying condition by the joint USAAF/USN/Royal Australian Air Force Technical Air Intelligence Unit (TAIU) at Eagle Farm, Brisbane, Australia in late 1942 and early 1943. The aircraft was sent for evaluation at Wright Field in the US and wearing post-1943 style US insignia. Fate unknown. According to an article on http://www.j-aircraft.com/ , a war-time report said the over-all colour was “dove grey”.
