Japanese Aircraft Online Model Contest 003 - Danilo Renzulli

The subject is an OOB Nakajima Ki-27 "Nate" RS Model kit in 1/72. The interiors arranged with photo etched parts provided in the kit are difficult to see once the canopy is closed. Decals by Rising Decals - the only details I added were the pitot pipe made of metal wire and a small plastic rod and the navigation light (wings' tips and top of rear fuselage) made by drilling a small hole filled with a tiny drop of Cristal Clear and a drop of Future mixed with some water based acrylic color.
I tried to imitate the elusive green-grey finish typical of these aircraft using a mixture of Humbrol colors. That's all!

Good work. I like the subtle weathering effects, all the more impressive because it is 1/72 scale. I vote 4.2.
