The brawler – Tamiya Mitsubishi J2M3 Interceptor Raiden 1/48 scale
Mitsubishi J2M has always seemed to me like a brawler, a boxer determined to throw punches no matter what. Short, stubby, lacking in agility - but packing a lot of heat. The old Tamiya kit delivered a simple base for approaching this subject, nothing fancy but really enjoyable. I used the standard Tamiya paints, decals from the box and a little bit of weathering with oils to make it look dusty.
