    Hello nice site. I have the old Hasegawa-Mini Craft 1/72 Jake minus the decals.
    I did some searching and found a newer kit with decals for the plane from the cruiser
    Tone which spotted the US fleet at the Battle of Midway. From what I can find the old
    Hasegawa kit calls out for gray, which I know believe is gray green, the dark green over
    gray would be dark green over gray green. The decals seem simple, the 6 hinomarus and MI-4
    on the tail. Is there any good sites or pictures of this plane? Thanks---John

    Mechanic of World Aircraft Vol. 3 says, airframe color for the E13A1 was gray except the nose in black till the summer of 1942 when dark green began to be painted.
    The gray green is not mentioned.
