Japanese Markings

Recommended Posts

Were the Black or Dark green painted nose cowlings on Japanese aircraft used by just the Navy or were they used by both the Army and the Navy? I can’t find a reference.

I know on the Zeke's it was used to help 'hide' the oil stains and other engine blow back. But I've hardly seen it on IJAAF aircarft, mostly just IJN

 

r5: specificly, its an A6M2, most likely Type 21, as used for the first 2 years (well, after the USA entry) into the war. Had been used by IJN units over Southern China mid-late 41, after that they were needed "elsewhere"

 

raven: Tinian (sp?) group markings?

You want the template for AD's Zeke? (how do you think I made MY skins! Homegrown templates!)

 

BTW, don't know if you know this, but the Pearl Harbor and Midway Kate skins for DATs B5N are at my site only. The rest should be here (Zeke, Val, George, Oscars, etc) If it's DAT, its at my site, if its from Wolf or AD, it's here

 

Never did anything with the Jill or Nick; never found the time. My Oscar template ain't all that great....

I have a lot of those books ... even though I can't read the langauge, the pictures are GREAT!!!

 

That's AD's Oscar Ki-43 (actually a Ki-43-Ia). My craptastic template is for Wolf's (Ki-43-I)

 

I never finished re-building AD's Oscar template. It's yours if you want it!

 

here's the Zekes template, complete with all the bits I used for all my skins. Just give credit to Volksjager, who did one or 2 of hte original skins, and me for the template.

 

mapping is teh same for the A6M2 and A6M5. You'll see the added bit fro the later 4-wing gun versions, even though we don't ahve the extra gun barrels.
