1/72 Tamiya Aichi M6A1-K Nanzan

Gallery Article by Bob TheDoc on Oct 12 2018



The Aichi M6A1-K Nanzan was a land based trainer for the M6A1 Seiran seaplane, which was carried and launched from Japanese submarines. Very few of the Seiran were built, less than thirty; and only two of the Nanzan, which had a retractable landing gear.

This is a nice kit of an obscure subject from Tamiya. It has nice engraved detail, crisp moulding, no flash and overall great fit (except for the canopy).

I finished it OOB in one of the box schemes, as a weekend project. Paints used are Revell Aqua and Daler-Rowney acrylics.
