1/48 Tamiya Mitsubishi Ki-46 III Type 100

Bit different for me, haven't done much in the way of WWII Japanese aircraft, but this was done for a guy I do builds for.

The interior is done with AK Real Color Mitsubishi interior green, The camo green is AK Real Color Midori Iro Green, the grey, yellow and props  are done with Tamiya. Flory dark dirt wash and final coat was Vallejo Matte Varnish.
I know Japanese are normally very weathered, but they were new at some point.

Grant: Your usual superb job!!! Heart


The weathering fits, as a high performance recon bird the Dinah probably got a lot more tender loving care than a fighter stuck on some island in the Pacific.

The Dinah is such a unique IJAAF a/c!

I wonder if the ground crews hated wiping the inside of the forward windshield - I get muscle cramps all the time when I try to reach waaaay into the front or back windshields when cleaning my car!
