Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden (Jack) 1/32 Hasegawa


Recommended Posts

Hi, my fellow modelers!

 

This is my 1/32 Hasegawa's Mitsubishi Raiden finished!! I opted for a very worn plane taking advantage of the model size. Painted in IJN Green (Tamiya XF-11) using the hair spray technique for the weathering. I had a lot of pleasure building this model. hope you like it too. Thanks.

Beautifully weathered.

Question: did you mask off the black panels and paint them before chipping away? And does the toplayer

hold the tape well enough?

Questions quetions but what a fantastic model!

Congratulations.

Hi Cees!

 

In fact, I painted the black panels almost the same time of the overall green. Just before the color painting, I apllied a coat of lacquer paint TS-30 "silver leaf", from Tamiya, and a thin layer of hair lacquer (from my mother in law arsenal!!). Then, with warm water, a rough brush and a toothpick I started chiping, slowly and controllably. With this method, all the masks I used were well suported by the top layer (I used Tamiya tape, previously used to lose grip).
