the markings the kit will be painted in....though a bit more green going by my research.

it's an unusual assembly pattern but works very nicely

Good start.

Pity Airfix didn’t scale it down to 1:72.

well a bit of progress....she is painted after a bit of looking at different greens i went with Gunze IJNAF green seems to be the closest.

and a busy weekend i got the decals on it...i was worried as the decals seemed to have a reaction to the coat of testors decal bonder buy they seemed to settle down nicely.

and a brushed on cover of future they look pretty good.
