I’m calling this one done.  I have not weathered it at all, nor have I bombed it up.   Yet. 
Pearl Harbor aircraft were basically new, or next to new machines, having seen no combat before that fateful day, so I will give it some basic exhaust and oil staining, and possibly a bit of minor salt staining.

I’m placing it on a table at the IPMS US Nationals tomorrow, and this is as far as I’m willing to go, today. 
It looks good, alignment is decent, and it’ll give a good account of itself tomorrow and Saturday. It’s not a Nationals winner, but it’s a decent and straight build.

This aircraft was the flight leader on the first wave of dive bombers, and sortied from the carrier Shokaku. 
The special color was for formation assembly after the attack was completed.

Ill add some better pics in a bit

She came out real Nice Ernie I was watching YT last night saw the build on there at the table for San Marcos.:unworthy:

A fairly easy and straightforward build, as well.  The kit’s big weakness are the decals.  I recommend the resin engine and exhaust as well.
