Aichi M6A1 “Seiran” K6-15 日本海軍 (Tamiya 1/72)
Tamiya 1/72 excellent kit of this unique airplane. I tried to represent a prototype that was over painted after the Japanese lost they air superiority and the orange was too much of a target, if you know what I mean. The tail code is fictional since none of the photos of this aircraft in this color scheme shows the tail code.
The hinomaru were painted using Tamiya and Gunze acrylics, stencils and tail code are the kit's decals.

Great looking "Seiran", Paulo @armouredsprue
Your quality build makes it look much bigger than 1/72
The trolley makes it look even better.
Thank you John
Great build! What shade of green did you use?
I used Tamiya XF 81 Dark Green 2 and added some drops of XF5 to vary the hues
A wonderful Seiran, Paulo!
Seriously, i thought it was an excellent 1/48!
Beautiful build, nicely done all over.
A real beauty - I plan to do that same scheme, as it is a real standout. Looks fantastic.
The model was very easy to build and I could focus on the painting
