Quick build - F-toys 1/144 - Aichi E13A "Jake" -

F-toys 1/144 - Aichi E13A "Jake" - Navy Type Zero Reconnaissance Seaplane
New "quick" rebuild of the Allied reporting name Jake or Aichi E13A or even "Navy Type Zero Reconnaissance Seaplane", one of the most important float plane in the IJN.

Got the Minicraft kit first which i really do not like, a repackage of the 40 odd years old Crown kit. After seeing some great photos of the f-toys Jake decided to get that and model it using the decals from the Minicraft in the ghost grey that i prefer. Really happy with the canopy no sprue or injection imperfection to be seen.

After being taken apart, scratched a very simple cockpit and then glued back together and the quite big seams filled and sanded while still not quite dry, hope that the putty won't shrink overnight.

Will prime tomorrow then hopefully be able to airbrush soon after. Sanded off some of the marking hoping that they to reduce what will show through during painting.
