the “salt water” technique for the paint chipping effect and enamel
washes for additional weathering.
The 762nd Kokutai was a land based attack and bomber unit of the Japanese Navy Air Force but it also had its own fighter unit, the 701st Hikotai, when it was assigned in the Philippines in late 1944. This actual aircraft was found in a derelict state at the Clark Airfield complex by US troops in early 1945.
Cheers and Happy Modeling!
