ki-555-greg_plummer_01.jpg (48683 bytes)

Here's a Revell of Germany's Arado 555 bomber done in Japanese markings.  Not too much was done to the kit other than to paint the interior parts laquered blue and finish the exterior in a weathered IJA brown. Markings were from a 1/48 decal set for the "George", and the model was glued down to a base due to a lack of nose weight. Lots of fun! By Greg Plummer (18 May 01)

I've attached a couple of photos from a diorama I built a few years back.  It's of a Hasegawa 1/72 A6M2 bulldozed over during one of the island-hopping campaigns.

(The dio. along with an article was published in FineScale Modeler some time back, but these images weren't included.)
