    BB 64 Wisconsin

    Looks good! I love those quick out of the box builds. I really should do them more often and not worry about adding lighting or using upgrade kits etc... since I never get them done

    True IJN Akagi Flight Deck Color?

    1/700 Japanese Aircraft Carrier Akagi

    Yep, that is the one I use it mostly for figure painting as a skin tone wash, but found it useful here Just make sure to really thin it down as it is a very strong color as in it is better to do some very very light washes and build up

    WWII Pacific Navy aircraft in 1/72
