Welcom mates and thanks for the conments.
I still have to decide if I want to model a plane used in the Pearl Harbour attack.
If so, weathering will be kept to a minimum. The planes used at PH were kept in pristine condition

Very busy with work lately, but some progress on the cockpit parts.
I chose to use the kit instrument panel instead of the Eduard piece. The kit panel has far more depth, so out with the detail brush! 🙂

panel looks nice 🙂

Thanks mates, much appreciated 👍
Soon much of it is hidden when the fuselage will be closed 🙂

Absolutely convincing work 👍 👍 👍

Aotake was produced in many colours, from yellow to blue. It was a clear laquer, applied over the metal parts.
The colour was added only to be able to see what parts were treated with it. Mainly in cockpits, but als other parts were overpainted with a dull finish, like cockpit green or black.
It surprises me that all the "ready to use" Aotakes are blue. Anyway I wanted a more green/blue tint to it

really good point there Kees.... i did not know that 🙂

Some progress. I added the 'hinomaru' markings and fuselage bands using masks from Tamiya tape.
Since I wanted a machine from the Japanese carrier "Kaga" in 1941, I had to add white tail numbers.
I couldn't find decals for it, so I also added the white numbers using a mask made from tape.
10. June 2018, 17:47
excellent job replacing those decals! do you cat the mask by hand or you have one of those cutting machines?
10. June 2018, 18:02
Bart Goesaert
Nice work
10. June 2018, 18:22
Painted markings are the way to go, atleast on japanese planes! Great job! 🙂
10. June 2018, 18:33
Björn Svedberg
It's looking great! Nice job on masking the text! 👍
10. June 2018, 18:40
Kees Kleijwegt
Thanks mates!
@ Spanjaard: The hinomaru masks were made with an Olfa circle cutter. For the lettering on the tail I scanned the decal sheet and used the scan to draw new codes in Autocad. These were printed to scale and cut by hand. Actually quite small lettering to cut by hand 🙂

thanks. really well done Kees.

I consider this one finished.
My first Japanese aircraft and my first time at airbrushing markings.

Fantastic result Kees

Excellent work, and great attention to detail! Love the paintwork! Perfect! 👍 👍
24. June 2018, 10:22
Great work! Cant wait to build one myself. ^^
24. June 2018, 10:26
Kees Kleijwegt
Thanks mates!
The kit is great Hoodlum90 👍
For instance the cockpit is really detailed OOB. It seems Hasegawa just give an extra push on kits of Japanese aircraft. Björn can confirm this, he did an awesome job on his Nakajima Jill 👍👍

Yes Kees, it really seems so. Thanks for the compliment btw, but you certainly raised the bar with this build. 👍

Hanno Kleinecke
Beautiful result, excellent Paintjob Kees ! 👍
What is your criteria for choosing the colours for the „oil dot filter", and why did you apply them only to the wings, not on top of fuselage and stabilizers ?
25. June 2018, 05:35
Wim van der Luijt
Great Result Kees! one to be very proud of
25. June 2018, 06:17

Great looking Val, Kees! Cockpit detail looks great, and the paint is fantastic!
25. June 2018, 09:33
Kees Kleijwegt
Thanks Björn, James, Hanno, Wim, Bart and Gordon! Much appreciated. 👍

@Hanno, I wanted to enrich the main camouflage color. I read somewhere that if you want to enrich the colour, you need to ADD COLOUR! Preferably the primary colours red, blue and yellow 🙂
If you add a dot filter in the same colour range (in this case greys), the colour is faded, not "enriched chromatically".
The filter was also added on the fuselage, the picture was taken halfway the process.

Very nice and unusual build. Quite an inspiration. Thanks for sharing Kees!

Thx for the explanation Kees, I really like the effect achieved.

Thanks Christian and Ricardo 👍
You're welcome Hanno, sharing is what Scalemates is all about! 🙂

Very nice, I dont usually like to weather aircraft because I cant do it good, but I do weather some of my tanks. I would like to do it though, and I was looking for some artist chalks that weren't too expensive, but I haven't found any around here that were earth colors, I have only found pastels. I paint everything by hand so I am usually only doing feather brushing or adding washes. For some reason the Model Master Japanese colors do not take good to washes. n Unfortunate.
12. October 2018, 08:48
Wow! Looks amazing. Anyone know the purpose of the "pylons" under the wings?
12. October 2018, 10:02
Bart Goesaert
dive brakes?
12. October 2018, 10:07

Fantastic Val Kees! Love the weathering effects and the detail painting especially.. Very Good 👍

Excellent job.
15. October 2018, 00:10
Kees Kleijwegt
Thanks Christopher, Havar, Daniel, Clifford and bobinspokaloo! 👍
And Bart is right, the "pylons" are indeed dive brakes

Christopher you could try to add some filters with oil colours. Perfect to paint them on and when choosing the right colours you can create a really good weathered look.
Or go with pigments, I used a lot of them on my A-7e

I tired that with the beige on a sample piece, but this Model Master paint doesn't react well to the Revell thinner. Going to put a clearcoat on it and try again though, using the sample piece. seems to work a lot better though on flat paint than on this semi gloss
16. October 2018, 09:46
Kees Kleijwegt
I think a clear coat to seal the MM paint is indeed the right way to go. Let us know how it worked out! 👍
17. October 2018, 07:45
Marco Gallmann
WOW, fantastic work! Expecially the Cockpit and the exhaust dirt 👍
