Placement of machine gun mechanisms and another two vents, as previously the vents are made up of sandwiched photo-etch mesh and wood backing pieces, be careful that two of the MG mechanisms differ from the other two and that placement also differs.

Construction of the two Mitsubishi F1M2 'Pete' floatplanes.

I used Tamiya XF70 IJN dark green for the upper surfaces which is a satin finish, matt black for the nose cowl and a satin sea grey for the undersurfaces.

The supplied decals are not water slide, but are water soak pressure sensitive decals.

Care needs taken with cutting out of the photo-etch catapult cradle's from the fret abd subsequent folding.

The fuselage/wing V struts are formed from brass wire.

Anti aircraft gun and Machine gun assembly.

There are 6 anti aircraft guns and 22 three barrel machine guns to assemble, the barrels for the machine guns are cut brass wire lengths, most of the machine guns will be located at a later point.
