Been working on this kits since it came out last Dec. It was shelved till i found some aftermarket decals . I found some print scale decals on Ebay. My is in the markings of the BII-24 Darwin Raid Feb 19th 1942. Kit interior painted with Mr color paints. For the dials i used the Airscale dial decals . My usual cockpit weathering. Enggine [painted with Tamiya LP-33 silver and Tamiya black wash for detail . Now for the paint on the airframe. Models sanded with Tamiya 3000 grit sanding sponge . Tamiya LP-33 Gray Green INJ sprayed directly on the plastic. Cowling  sprayed with the mr color INJ cowling black.  I decided to mask on the blue stripw which was easy to do with Tamiya tape. I used a mix of mr color bright blue and Intermediate blue. Hinamarus was made using the shadow hobbies thinnerline circle cutter. Sprayed with mr color IJN Hinamarus red . Same color was also used with masking of the anti walk way are. Tonight i used the same circle cutter to mask off and spray the filler caps . Next to gloss coat for decals .

Not much on the Zero tonight . Finished painting  the prop. Instead of using the red stripes decals on the prop i decided to mask them off and spray them. I like the results much better then trying to use the decals  :)
