    Here's my latest build for my BOLG builds which is the Nakajima B6N1 Tenzan "Jill" of the 601st Squadron based on the CVL Zuikaku on October 1944. The base kit is a 1/72 Fujimi B6N2 kit which requires some modification on the engine exhaust system to get B6N1 version. This bird is as big as the Avenger in terms of wingspan, with an externally carried torpedo or bomb rack.

    Nice one mate. I have a Japanese friend who told me his grandfather designed that aircraft!

    I don't know, to be honest. His family name is Yamada, if that means anything to you.
    Actually I made a mistake too - it was the C6N1 his grandfather designed, the 'stretched' version of the B6N1. I'll have to ask him more about this next time I write.
