Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Val is available online from Squadron.com
Here is Hasegawa's
D3A1 Val in 1/48th scale.
The flaps, elevators, cockpit and
canopy are from CMK. In my opinion, in this case
it is not necessery to use the CMK cockpit.
There is not so much to see inside due to the
figures being installed for the diorama. However the
thin vacform canopy is very helpful,
as well as the instrument panel and gunsight.
The resin flaps are little bit
disapointing due to their thick trailing edge and
The "spinning" propeller is
made from a sheet of clear plastic
The carrier deck is
a plastic sheet with scribed planks painted dark grey
with off white strips.
Gunze Sangyo paints.
The hinomaru are airbrushed.
Red ,yellow and blue strips,
letters and numbers are Hasegawa's decal from
their new Kate kit.
2 (pilot and gunner) + 16 Tamiya
repositioned pieces (none are the same).
