Hasegawa C6N1 "Saiun", code name "Myrt"


Recommended Posts

One of the most capable Japanese plane of the the period, a successful reco Navy plane, the Myrt has range and speed to escape the deadly F6F from the CAP carriers. hasegawa has done a great job on that one, but I have used my masks policy as usual. Nakajima green has a very dark hue as one can see.Best regards

Great Saiun Jean! I particularly like the dark green and the washed-out cowling black.

A beautiful plane (IMO) and a most excellent model!  

I'm guessing this is 1/48 scale, but correct me if I am wrong.

The little diorama really sets it off.  Clearly, you're a dab hand at painting figures too!

:goodjob:

Thanks a lot folks, and yes, I agree, this plane is a good looking Japanese Navy product. I will soon post a B6N2"Tenzan", a huge beast too! Cheers.

Your Myrt is a beaut! I wasn't aware the the C6N had wing slats- going to be a pain doing those puppies on my 1/72 Fujimi kit! Were they linked to the landing gear and deployed when the gear was down, like those on the SB2C, or were they free to deploy as conditions warranted, like those on a Bf-109?

Helo Mike. The slats are usually open on the ground on the pics and do not seem to be related to the flaps down.
