Aichi D3A1 "Val" Model II, Lt Maseo Yamaguchi, IJN Carrier Shokaku, Pearl Harbor Attack, Dec 7, 1941
Very nice Val, but with some overspray off the sides of the black anti-glare paint. Here we see a darker than usual tan fuselage, and I wonder if this should be instead the same shade in olive green. Don't know, just wondering. Manufacturing quality is good overall. Pilots are from a Hobby Master Kate model. So far I haven't had to hand-paint any Japanese crew, but SOMEONE is missing a couple crew members. Notice the difference in tans between this Val and the Corgi Zero.
