Claude - Type 96 carrier fighter

Recommended Posts

This is Fujimi's 1/72 scale A5M4 Claude in the kit's provided markings of a Soryu based aircraft, Dec. 1940.

Clear orange was mixed into aluminum and steel metalizers, and sprayed on to simulate the possible protective amber varnish. A final satin clear was applied overall. Masks for the Hinomarus were cut from masking tape using a circle compass cutter.

Perfect.....The colour is just wonderful, it gives exactly the right overall impression at distance and remains both interesting and realistic under the closest scrutiny too, seriously well done! :thumbsup:
