BigGrin Hi All

Started to make up the aircraft they are all painted in there correct colours now, the Zero's are all finished as are the torpedo bombers. I had problems with the decals for the canopys they just would not stick in place and were way to big any way so I ended up painting the canopys black and they look ok I think.

Just the black paint to go on the dive bombers along with the decals and there all done.

More soon.

Regards

AndyCool

Nice job on the aircraft Andy, I like the way you have done three of them with different angles of wingfold and the black canopies look fine? Cool ThumpUp

I am quite tempted by the Akagi myself, maybe as a first foray into ship modelling though can't decide if I will just yet - but I do like the idea of an aircraft carrier?
