From the details on their website markings options for two aircraft will be provided as follows:-
- Aircraft '323' of 705 Ku in April 1943 - the 'Betty' intercepted and shot down in which Admiral Yamamoto was killed
- Aircraft 'F-319' of 4 Ku at Rabaul, New Britain in the summer of 1942
Both aircraft are depicted in dark green over grey with the FS (now AMS 595A) values of 34077 (Green) and 36492 (Gray) cited for the colours:-
34077 does not exist in the standard as a matt colour but as the gloss colour 14077. FS 36492 is not a neutral grey but consists of the pigments rutile titanium oxide (white), yellow iron oxide and carbon black (blue shade). Leaving aside the question of whether Betty was painted grey or left natural metal beneath the cited colours seem ok-ish. The decals sheet is by Techmod. Hannants UK display a sprue frame (below) and quote a price of £40.49 after 10% discount. No further details known but hopefully this kit will be a worthy successor to the Hasegawa G4M1 of 1969 vintage.
