Hasegawa Mitsubishi G3M2 “Nell” of the 901 Kōkūtai in 1/72 Scale
This is the Hasegawa G3M2 “Nell”. The subject aircraft was found on wrecked Naha Airfield on Okinawa on 1 April 1945 and was extensively photographed by American troops. It was assigned to the 901 Kōkūtai, a maritime patrol unit which was equipped with several different aircraft types. The “C” marking on the fuselage side was a visual aid to formation flying while on anti-submarine patrol; at the proper distance the “C” would appear to be a closed circle.
The model was built out of the box, with only tape belts added to the interior. Hinomaru were painted using Maketar masks, the remaining markings are kit decals.
