Banzai!…1/48 Nakajima Ki-27b Type 97 “Nate”, Imperial Japanese Army
And my dad has finished his next, and for now last, IJ subject.
This time the old Hasegawa ex-Mania Nate. The kit isn´t bad, regarding it dates back to 1977. This is a limited edition from around 2005. Decals tended to tear and float around and my dad had to repaint some of the red stripes. Plastic seatbelsts from Fine Molds, EZ Line for the antenna wire, painted with Tamiya XF-14 JA Grey, Gunze H422 RLM82, Tamiya XF-52 Flat Earth and Gunze H54 Navy Blue. There are different interpretations of this aircraft´s camo.
