Nakajima A6M2-N "Rufe": FINISHED !

Recommended Posts

As I paint by brush,the overall Japanese-gray is the easiest option for me.

 

What would be the best enamel from Revell or Humbrol for this ?

I dunno, but here is a very complete kit build/review that I think you should study carefully:

Especially notice the need for weights in the main float.

 

As for which paint, as an old hand-bristle-brush painter, I have found Testors MM enamels and acrylics to be very good so I couldn't say, but here is a page with a commentary on Humbrol:

I started with the float and wing construction.

 

I had a feeling that by just glueing the float would come loose again.

So I added two small screws to fix it stronger.

Overall painting done "factory fresh".But it's a bit bright.So I will try to add a wash to darken it a bit.Not to much.

 

Is it grey or cockpit-colour behind the seat under the glass ?

Looking good Erwin!

IIRC, the cockpits themselves were all Nakajima interior green (close to RAF interior green) but I believe that back turtle deck area was usually black, same as the IP hood:
