Scale Aviation Modeller International 2001 12

Having said that there was not much choice of colour schemes appropriate to the Gekko; some of the early production machines were finished in a green over grey scheme and these appear to have had white outlines applied to the roundels. Markings for one such aircraft are provided in the kit. This may provide an alternative for those contemplating building more than one variant of this aircraft and wishing for something a little different. A trawl through some of the appropriate internet sites (see references) revealed some pictures of aircraft with an overall light colour applied. I do not know what this colour was; overall grey (possibly tinted with protective varnish as applied to the Nakajima B5N to give a yellowish appearance) and even bare metal could be possibilities here.
