    just finished dirting up the upper surfaces of the fusealage and wings using a blck and green pencil to give it that "last months of the war look" from the front part of the cockpit to the rear.kancho had dirtyed the under side on his paint job but i thought id do this to add something to it. i used ref pics of other jap aircraft and thier condition in the combat zone in the last three months of the pacific war.
