Aichi M6A1 “Seiran” K6-15 日本海軍 (Tamiya 1/72)

November 14, 2021 · in Aviation · · 9 Comments

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.

  1. Great looking "Seiran", Paulo @armouredsprue
    Your quality build makes it look much bigger than 1/72
    The trolley makes it look even better.

  2. Great build! What shade of green did you use?

  3. A wonderful Seiran, Paulo!
    Seriously, i thought it was an excellent 1/48!

  4. Beautiful build, nicely done all over.

  5. A real beauty - I plan to do that same scheme, as it is a real standout. Looks fantastic.

  6. Thanks all
    The model was very easy to build and I could focus on the painting
