Mostly a good kit; no serious pain involved in the build but not a "shake n' paint" model either. Wing roots took more work than usual, masking the greenhouse with Tamiya tape was tedious (who needs pre-cut masks?), and the decals were tough to work with. Pre-shaded with black, painted with MM enamels using varying lightened shades of the base colors, oil wash in the panel lines, paint chips done with a silver pencil and further weathering done with pastel chalk and Tamiya weathering stuff. I didn't go too heavy on the weathering figuring every super-chipped and weathered Japanese aircraft you see had to pass through a stage like this first.

I like the weathering a lot.I think it represents an operational aircraft better than the over done ones..........Paul
