Have started this new great model from ZM

I plan to build it OOB and to play with weathering a little

so far I have to confirm that it's pure fun to put it together :D

Im building late armored version in dark green finish

the manual - I like this ZM style so much :D

My package doesn't contain sprue N but have 3 sprues M instead. I don't want to wait for replacement and will try to scratch all missing parts. Should be easy ;)

engines parts painted and shaded, ready for weathering. Did'n pu much energy into this because it will be mostly hidden

Great start Jan. I think I'll will try your paint before build technique on my next build.

Thanks Wouter! honestly I prefer to paint bigger subassemblies but in some cases like this when every part is in different color and it would be rather complicated to weather it, I'm taking this route :D

Those engines have come up an absolute treat. Pitty like you say most of it will be hidden.

That is looking great Jan!!!!!

 

What paint colors and manufacturers are you using in this build? If you wouldn't mind posting on a regular basis on that please. Because I have this kit on order here in the US.

I'm not familiar with with Japanese aircraft.

 

Thank you

Danny

Will try Danny

but generally all metallic paints were so far Alclads and MRP

specific japanesse colours are Mr.Color range (as mentioned in kit instructions), because MRP doesn't have them

colors used for the engines:

Khaki - C55 (Mr.Color)

cylinders - Dark aluminium (Alclads)

Radiators - Copper (MRP)

engine body - some light grey (MRP) - didn't find any specific call out in instructions for this color

Exhausts - Burnt iron (Alclads),then thinned rust color (MRP), exhaust soot (MRP)for the ends of exhausts

Mig Dark wash used, finished with semigloss and semimatt varnish layers

HTH
