    Maybe I overdid the fading effect when weathering.... she looks a bit darker in the real. But thankyou for your observation.

    Is it a lighter shade because you maybe used a flash for the pics?

    Lovely build! Nice weathering, the worn paint looks cool! :thumbleft:

    I did one last year, that Tamiya is one nice kit, I'd highly recommend it. Must get another one sometime.

    I'll try to take some pics, I'll have to take my camera down to my office where my "collection" is.

    Yes, it is a nice kit. I'm hoping to build the A6M2, with the white and black scheme, that scheme is so jap!

    By_the_way, does anyone know where can I find a 1:48 model of the Aichi D3A2 (val), I want to build her in the yellow/red Pearl Harbor scheme, they look so oriental.
