Nakajima Type 11, Early production (Irving), Tamiya 1/48
Okay, I must admit I had forgotten what Tamiya stands for. Abundance of detail, no flash, perfect fit (I didn’t use any glue for the landing gear…).
I used Eduard’s p.e. set, a value for money set that provides lots of extra details. I did however add some handmade details here and there.
The model was riveted, then painted with xtreme metal aluminum. I applied masking fluid with a sponge at select areas to simulate chipping, then sprayed Vallejo’s IJN green. Nearly all marking are mask painted.
Use Gunze’s gloss varnish, then flat. Unfortunately the latter presented some frosting. I was able to save myself from a stroke by spraying a new, thin layer of gloss and then flat by Marabu, which somehow saved the day.
Hope you like it!
