Here is my latest model. It is the Hasegawa 1/48 Mitsubishi J2M5
Raiden model 33 (Jack).
The aircraft was equipped with two Shiki Type 5 30mm guns and two
20mm guns instead of the classic 4x20mm guns armament. The aircraft
belonged to Chyusi Flying Group in 1945 based in Japan.
I have only added Eduard photoetched set inside and scratchbuilt the
engine flaps with styrene card, opened the steps on the left side of the
fuselage and replaced the feeding tubes of the external fuel tank and
the landing gear brake lines with fine wire of different thickness.
The original canopy was cut to be open and I've added a scratchbuilt
headrest which is missing in the kit.
The model was painted with Gunze acrylics.
