Hi all - my final completion for 2020 is the Eduard D-13 weekend edition. A nice kit if a little tricky in places - I like many others doing eduard’s doras struggled to get a good fit on the gunbay covers which if you want to display closed, requires a bit of surgery.  Other than that, things went together pretty smoothly. The scheme is what drew me to this and I was happy with how that turned out. I replaced some of the kit parts with wire and steel tubing, such as the gun barrels and pilot tube -added wiring to the wheel bay and added some pe seatbelts. Other than that’s it out of the box. Painted with mr color with enamels and oils for weathering.

Stunning work. I have this one in the stash and am still plucking up the courage to attempt the paint job. You’ve done it proud.

A superb Dora! Those Yellow 10 markings just look painted on…


Top tier modelling. And it is good to see a Dora without the red and white stripes under the wings. 😉


Kind regards,

At the risk of repeating everyone elses comments, that's a cracking model with excellent paintwork.

thanks Sam - all in well down here in New Zealand. Just heading into summer now so hopefully lots of bench and beach time (in that order)

Yep, Stunning job.

Great interpretation of the camo scheme.

I too am waiting to build up the nerve to attempt this camo scheme.

Could you list the hobby colours you used pl


Hi Walter - no problem: 


Mr Color 117 RLM 76 - underside

Alclad airframe aluminum 
Mr Color 121 RLM 81 - lightened this quite a bit as I used Jerry Crandall's book "Yellow 10" as my main reference and the paintings in that showed the RLM as being quite light
Mr Color 122 RLM 82
Mr Color 123 RLM 83
Nose colour: Mr Color 124 Dark green (mitsubishi) mixed with a little yellow - though this was as close I could get it / I'd look for a different shade if I was doing this again as I wasn’t 100% happy with how it turned out.


Hope this helps.
