N1K2-J George

Hasegawa's 1/48 scale N1K2-J George is available online from Squadron.com



This is the recent Hasegawa 1/48 scale N1K2-J "George".

It is built completely out of the box except for the resin wheels, which actually were boxed with the "old" Hasegawa George. I found this to be a nice kit to build with very few annoying construction issues.

The model is painted in Model Master paints, and weathered with a liberal wash of Grumbacher artists oils/turpenoid. The colors I chose for weathering included Raw Umber, Paynes Gray, and Burnt umber.



The "silver" weathering is from a layer of MM metalizer alum. sprayed beneath the green. After painting the silver, I coated the model w/Future, then painted as normal. When I was ready to weather the model, I pulled the paint chips off with masking tape.
