Hi all!
My next project is going to be the beautiful IJNAF Mitsubishi F1M2 Reikan codenamed 'Pete' by the Americans.
The kit is the 1/48 Hasegawa one..



I got my inspiration from this very 902 Ku Pete



and the dio will show a relaxation scene in Satawan Atoll, Mortlock islands in early July 1943.At this point I'd like to thank my good friend George 'Arawasi' Eleftheriouhttp://arawasi-wildeagles.blogspot.gr/),for his help and invaluable info..
I made some minor improvements in the tiny cockpit and I am about to put the two re-riveted fuselage halves together..
See you soon,
Cheers,
Panagiotis.
