A6m2 airfix fictional

I built this kit to improve my skills with oil paints. I chose to not use the green scheme provided by the kit but to make a scheme based on the carrier a6m2s. I tried to also rivet this kit but you can't see it in the end result because I hand paint my models at this moment. I need to improve that skill for the future. I didn't really at any extra detail to the kit. This kit is easy to built and looks okay. I get the feeling that the canopy frame is out of scale and the small pieces like the antenna mast and pitotube are very fragile. But other than that i'm happy with the result.

Modifications:
- Rivetting (not visible in end result)
- Drilled out cannon barrel
- Antenna cable.

Very nice result - it looks airbrushed.
The rest of your airforce looks good as well.
