The Japanese planes seem rather lacking in special artwork, and of that which actually does exist I think only 1 gives an XP bonus to pilots. 

 

Other nations have multiple instances of such paint. Indeed, the Bf 109 B comes out the box with 3 different 20% Crew XP and a 3% cruise speed paint!

 

So, show the Japanese some love, shower them with new paint!!

Looked thru all my Japanese planes.

The only Japanese plane which has (2) 20% crew skins is the A6M5, it also has 3% speed.

The A6M2 has a flame skin (recent bundle) for 5% a/c exp and a skin for 3% speed. 

The heavies have 5% a/c exp skins, I think they came as a present when they were introduced.

Also got some planes with a 3% speed skin ; A6M5, Ki-88, A6M1, J7W1.

3% of 0 is still 0.

It's not much eh?  Those 20% crew XP paints are a real bonus but it seems that some nations don't have as many paint schemes with that bonus as others would be nice to see this addressed. 

(The 20% crew XP at tier 4 which the Bf 109 B has is perfect. That's exactly where a newer player would start to need better skilled pilots.)
