Fine Molds' 1/48 scale
Mitsubishi A5M4 Claude

by Julian Shawyer

Mitsubishi A5M4 Claude


Tamiya's 1/48 scale A-1J Skyraider is available online from Squadron for only US$27.92!

 

Description

 

This is the 1/48 scale Finemolds Mitsubishi A5M4 Claude. Imperial Japanese Navy, INJ Kaga, 1939.

The kit contained 67 parts, and apart from the seat harness, was built straight out of the box.

It was painted with Alclad II, Aeromaster & Tamiya Acrylics.

The decals are the standard kit markings. 


 

I first taped the major components together to see how good the fit was.

 

 

The cockpit detail is constructed with the top of the wing forming the cockpit floor.


 

The only addition to the kit was the seat harness. The fit of the fuselage around the finished cockpit was very good

 

 

The main parts have been painted, weathered and had the decals added before the final construction.
