A6M2-N Tamiya + MDC 1/32 Rufe Armée de l'air Cat Laï


Recommended Posts

Hi gents

Transkit MDC used to transform Tamiya's kit.

Unusual camo as it's a captured Rufe and given to French Air Force by ATAIU.

Ame-iro following the recipe of Bruce Salmon. Nakajima green with AK real color (Black green).

Brilliant model! Well done! Great paint work and weathering. 

 

The first photo reminds me of Rikyu Watanabe's beautiful illustrations. 

 

Best, 

Nikola

Fantastic Stuff.  Its fascinating that the French used captured Japanese aircraft in SEA.  The postwar period was absolute Chaos....with hundreds of thousands of Surrendered Japanese on dozens of islands, Mountbatten and others, including the Dutch, used them as troops to fight Communist insurgents in Malaya, Indonesia and perhaps even French Indo China.    This is similar to the situation in 1919 when thousands of surrendered German troops were used by the Allies to fight Communist movements in Hungary, Latvia, Estonia and Ukraine...

Thank you guys ;)

Yes,  chaotic period and prelude of future conflicts. For France Indochina war and Algeria war (even if the term of pacification was used instead war as it was French departments).

Have a nice day

Stunning work!  

Even if there hadn't been a captured version, the realism of your model would've convinced me otherwise.

Brilliant! :clap2:
