Nakajima A6M2-N Type 2 ("Rufe"), Hasegawa 1/72
Posted by cupofwondering on Friday, August 2, 2019 2:51 PM
Nakajima A6M2-N Type 2, recce plane and fighter of the Imperial Japanese Navy, 934th Kokutai, based at Halong seaplane base, Ambon Island, Dutch East Indies, September 1943. The fuel truck is an Isuzu TX-40, like the Rufe, from another Hasegawa kit. The same goes for the personnel and the oil drums. All in scale 1/72.

The Dutch Fokker G-1 Reaper, heavy fighter. If we only would have had more of them back in May 1940....

The good ole Rufe, it always seem remarkable to me that it could be as manuverable (relatively) as it was with that big float attached.

Good job on it. I like the scene you made.

Very nice! The plane looks great and the figures really add to the display.
