Nice work! The paint looks very even and the details are great. Just a question, did you airbrush or hand paint?

Hi Adam.

Nice looking clean build. How did you paint the canopies, free hand or masked them? I've always like this aircraft hence my post on some of it's history earlier on. This plane came in a myrad of schemes and hopefully Airfix will re-tool it to go with their Zero and Kates. It has inspired me to maybe dig mine out of the stash and give it another go. 

 

Thanks for an interesting build and write-up and looking forwards to seeing more of your builds in the future.So keep them comimg.

 

Remember we do this for fun                      John the Pom

 

 

Thank you! I hope they retool this plane too! Also, I painted the canopies by hand, It isn't as neat as masking, but less trouble!Smile

 When I built my Dinahs I asked the IPMS Japanese SIG about the correct colours and they gave me this mix:

15 parts Hu: 127 Satin US Ghost Grey + 6 parts Hu: 130 Satin White + 1 part Hu: 3 Gloss Brunswick Green

 

Thank you, I will be sure to do that next time. But as I said before, I am not really making this to a historiacal standerd. But thanks anyway!
