1/5 scale Saburo Sakai Best Pilot project

Hello again! I have started a new pilot from the Best Pilot selection. Japanese ace fighter pilot Saburo Sakai. He is incredibly detailed and will be interesting to paint. I have to get used to the smaller scale after 1/4 scale Lothar!

I have been doing some research online for uniform colors and materials to get an idea on how to approach him. His story is an interesting one as well....

Here are some pics to give you an idea how I start out.
