NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 MAKINGI’ll try to make Sweet Type 2 floatplane fighters. The packaging is a tasteful airplane painting, not the usual comical character box. The box drawing of the girl NASA and the black cat Lucky is cute and good. If anything, I prefer these box paintings.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 MAKINGI forgot when I bought it, and there was one more Type 2 plane in the vinyl package, so I’ll make this, too. I have many plastic models piled up, so I thought it would be better to make it by force at a time like this.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 MAKINGFor now, I put the body and the main wing together.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 MAKINGThis kit has cart and wave scene parts, so I assembled it in the middle because it would be troublesome later.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 MAKINGIt said to put some weight in, so I cut the weight for fishing and put it in front of the float. I can fix it well by dripping an instant adhesive or light-curing resin.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 MAKINGUmmm. The national marking of the Japan decal is not in the vinyl package. I should have noticed it when I bought it. I have to buy them separately sold one.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 MAKINGIt is bothersome to order now, so if I look at the leftover decals from the past, there are various rising sun marks. Red circle only, white frame or black frame on the outside. When I made it before, it was a dark green aircraft, so this time, it might be good to line up all the planes in light gray.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 PAINTINGThe assembly is almost finished. Since the number of parts is tiny, assembling three aircraft is not so hard.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 PAINTINGCanopy masking is more complex than assembly. It is difficult to cut it out and paste it beautifully. I have made several 1/144 scale Zero and Type Two floatplanes, so I got used to it a little.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 PAINTINGThe wave base is painted Vallejo blue. I bought it but didn’t have a chance to use this color in my modeling.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 PAINTINGI glued the canopy.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 PAINTINGFor the wave-based paint, after the primary color, I painted clear blue and then dry brushed lightly with white. The wavy part is lightly painted white.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 PAINTINGThis time, I chose a light gray-white body.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 PAINTINGI put the decal on, so it’s almost completed. The decal is very thin. I was careful about using too many marks softer.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 PAINTINGThere are kits with and without a Pitot tube. This kit didn’t have Pitot tube parts, so I lightly scraped a thin brass wire and glued it together. I think it was attached to Zero.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 FINISHED WORKThere was a lot of detailed work, but I completed all three. I can’t have the same three planes at a 1/48 scale. It is interesting to arrange them.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 FINISHED WORKThe Imperial Japanese Navy is known for using high-performance floating fighters. This type 2 seaplane seemed to have an excellent performance because it was initially a Zero fighter.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 FINISHED WORKThe Sweet kit has delicate panel lines, so it hardly remains even if I insert inking. However, a slightly fine line may be suitable for a 1/144 scale.

Finally, I gave it a light drybrushing with white. I don’t know which sea color it is, but I think this is better than the sweet type 2 fighter base I made long ago. The base painted with emerald green which I made before, has a good atmosphere, but this one looks like the sea surface.

The balance is entirely shifted to the back.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 FINISHED WORKAll three airplanes were equipped with two air-to-air bombs on the underside of the aircraft. This is a kind of cluster bomb. This bomb seems useful to attack large aircraft such as B-29 from above. It was initially a bomb to destroy an airport. I used to think air-to-air would be effective when they were engaged in fierce air battles such as somersaults with enemy fighters.

NAKAJIMA A6M2-N Type 2 FLOAT-PLANE FIGHTER IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY SWEET 1/144 FINISHED WORKSweet was originally established independently by Tamiya’s designers, so all the released kits are masterpieces. Of course, this kit is also definitive for the Type II floatplane fighter 1/144 scale. A seaplane has a large float, a cart, and a wave base, so that the price may go up. I think you can enjoy it more than the price.
