     This is the Hasegawa 1/48 Aichi type 99 Val . The kit is of typical Hasegawa quality. However I used the Eduard PE set to elaborate the interior, with Gunze lacquer paints finished the model.

   I heavily weathered the model using various toned up from basic colour as well as artist oil wash. 

The paint chipping effect achieved by means of hand picked silver paint blended with a touch of gun metal. 

Monofilament thread antenna finished the model.
