1/72 Aichi D3A1 Val, Pearl Harbour GB
Info indicated the markings are of L.Cmdr. Egusa's Val 'BI-231' from the Carrier Soryu with the 'Wild Horse' Flames flown during the second wave for that day.
This Mister Craft kit definitely wants to be a Fujimi kit, it had different sprue trees but the parts and engraved lines are almost identical to the Fujimi.
All flames and fuselage insignia were masked using kit diagrams as a template, sprayed with Tamiya XF-7.
IJN XF-12 for the Grey and X-18 for the Black with final coat of Micro Satin. Tail identification and wing roundels were decals.
