    Default Official Aichi E13A Jake Painting Thread

    Here is my first try on a float plane. I really enjoyed painting it and have some missions in mind for it.

    I used 3 drops of AK “Bleached Linen” to 1 drop of Vallejo ”IJA Light Grey Green” to get the base color. The weathering is a light wash using Vallejo “Light Rust”, using about 6 drops of water per drop of paint. Decals are Miscellaneous Miniatures.

    Apologies if this planes has already been painted. I looked and didn’t see any.

    PS: Perhaps because you asked me? There is this thread: Aichi E13A 'Jake'

    PPS: Steve [Roddy63] was the person that PM'ed me about the Jake, back in September of '19.

    Great Jake, Dave.
    You are becoming quite the expert at this.

    A very subtle paint scheme Dave.

    After seeing tis I checked with Dave (AIM0 and just had to have one of these. The order is in. He also has the Nick as being TBR so I asked about that also. Would be a new addition to my Japanese forces.

    Should have mine next week but I don't think it will be a good looking as yours. You gave me the inspiration.

    The plane is now officially famous as it is pictured on the Miscellaneous Miniatures site under the appropriate decal sheet. I had made a special request for the red declination lines to match the paint scheme I wanted to do. Here was my inspiration;

    Yeah, I think many of us are doing the same. I have some WWI Germans and more WW2 French on my table.
