Hi all,

I'm finished to build the nice Dragon Ka-Mi, very soon I'll post here some images before the paint. I like to paint it in green color, I'm searching for markings or any pictures for references.

Can anybody help me?

Thanks in advanced and Best Regards.

I think your stuck with grey...

if you wish to be accurate. I haven't seen anything about green Type 2s. These belonged to the Navy. Maybe someone will know more. Of course you can paint it green if you want to.

Grey or green.

February 28 2012, 1:43 PM 

Early Ka-Mi (e.g. Kwajalein or Saipan) were painted in grey. Later ones (e.g. Leyte or Shimushu) were painted in green.

Cheers,
Peter

OK...

...thanks both for your inputs, I know the early Ka-Mi's are in grey and later in green, I'm searching for pictures about he gree Ka-Mi's for markins, numbers, etc.

I like to paint it in green, but if don't find any picture or reference, I'll paint it in green.

Thanks all for your answer and interest.

Best Regards.

Wow, I didn't know there were green Type 2s...

February 29 2012, 11:20 AM 

I've seen that picture before and several others but didn't know they were green. What are the source documents that say they were green? Did they come from the factory painted green or did the crews paint them green in the field? That means I have to build another Type 2 now.

From an interview to SNLF veteran.

It is not clear. But, some Ka-Mi were repainted in green at Q Base (amphibious tank base in Japan).

IJN Navy Green

February 29 2012, 4:05 PM 

Hi Joey

According Mr. Zaloga notes in this same forum, the correct color is the IJN Type 21 green, you can obtain it in the Mr. Color IJN set, as the SC04 Green.

Now I think this set cannot found it, fortunately some time ago I purchased this one, and I like to paint it with this color.

I hope this helps.

Regards.
