    Default Official Nakajima Ki.27 "Nate" Painting Thread



    I was a little surprised that there was not already a thread for the infamous "Nate", but here we go...

    I recently finished 2 of these resin aircraft from Armaments In Miniature. I just thought that I would share them here and start a worthy thread. The Black and/or Red cowling denotes squadron leader's aircraft. The "Black Tail 76" served in Northern China from 1938 to 1940. I have no details for "Red Lightning Tail". The base color is Tamiya Acrylic Japanese Army Gray. Thanks for looking!

    Here are 4 Nates of mine, just completed. AIM 1/200 models.
    Not quite correct historical camo, but a sort of. Due to my sources, the "08" camo scheme was to leave the planes surfaces in silver/aluminium colour with some red or black (black tail - unit leader). Thus I painted them in silver, added decals and coated with matt varnish.

    Hopefully, the red trimmed plane above will work for his second plane.

    Very nice early war birds, Karl. These AIM models are definitely top notch.

    The tail marking on Carl's planes are for the 2nd Chutai, 4th Centai, but that unit didn't camouflage their planes in the drawings I found. Whatever.

    I just received my Nate's from AIM, as I was looking for aircraft details, I found the "lighting bolt" tail. I think that would be great to do. You did a outstanding job on yours.

    My Nates. These are the first models Iíve painted in over 20 years! I wanted to try a bunch of different color schemes. Eventually, Iíll paint a couple more to make up a flight for a scenario. Any constructive criticism appreciated from the pros. I have a long hill to climb.

    Bit of weathering/wear maybe but looks to me you're near the top of that long hill Dave.

    I'm ignorant of anything to do with WW2 but these look damned fine to me. Thanks for sharing Dave

    I've seen (and flown) them in person and they are very nice. I like a smattering of weathered and newer sharper planes. Like Flash, I'd weather a couple for my taste but they look great as they are.

    Thanks guys. I 100%agree some weathering would help. I was actually afraid to as I wasn’t very confident in how weathering would impact them. Now that I have some more planes done and have found a weathering technique I like, I’ll probably go back and put some wear on these. I appreciate the input and kind words.

    Great job on those. Looks like many of us use MISCMNI decals. Those are all I use anymore.

    Very nice finish, Dave!

    I shy away from weathering, worried I'll do too much and ruin the finish.
    I've only done 6 WW2 repaints, and didn't weather any of them.

    Shame those Hinomaru are slightly mis-registered, showing a tiny white arc around part of the edge of each one.
    A handful of my MiscMini WW1 roundels have the same.
    I use a wide variety of producers of decals, to avoid such nit-picks!
