  1. Nice work, I am looking forward for the upper camouflage painting
  2. Finest work as usual. This kit should be a better build than the Italeri 210 I guess.
  3. That’s my first ever seaplane built to be honest and I also not big fan of Japanese aircraft
  4. Hi everyone Here is my latest finished kit. This time I choose the excellent Tamiya 1/72 Aichi M6A1 - Seiran. I've built the kit straight from the box except for the PE seat belts and the scratch built pitot tube made out of syringe needle. The model was fully painted using Tamiya acrylic paint. Interior: XF-71 Interior Green Underside: Prototype Orange 5:X-6 + 2:X-7 Upper camouflage: XF-70 Dark Green 2 The Hinomaru were painted instead of using the kit decals. However, all the other markings were kit supplied decals. Japanese prototype aircraft were painted in bright orange color, but with the end of the war fasting approaching, the Japanese had to apply the camouflage green on the upper surfaces. Most of stencils were masked off before painting the green camouflage as can been seen in some photos. The tail marking are not confirmed since all photos of this version don't show the tail/rudder area. Weathering made using Tamiya accent panel, watercolour pencil and dry pastel. To the photos: As usual, comments and critics are truly welcomed! Cheers! Paulo
  5. Superb models, painting work and weathering. Exceptional photography to top up the fine work. Very well done mate
  6. Nice built. This aircraft represents the one flown the Col Nero Moura, the Squadron Leader. The 1st Brazilian Squadron was attached/part of the US 350th in Italy. Besides the P-47 squadron Brazilians also sent 1 army division and also a Reconnaissance Squadron (attached to the army) flying Piper P-4's for artillery orientation.
