    Rob. Thanks. I did not abuse the shipping much because I think this Zero is already from the end of the war. I applied lights and shadows and applied other colors to give a better weathering effect and, I think I did. I applied weathering and some shipping. Then I applied a clear gloss coat of Alclad. Now the decals. Regards ajcmac

    And after the mask was ready I painted the green (Tamiya's XF-70). Regards ajcmac

    Thanks coolboxx. I started the process of weathering. I already have the attack edge of the wings painted yellow. Follow the mask and paint the top green. Regards ajcmac

    GusMac I've had some, mostly from Badger, and I liked it. He had, for me, a fault with Harder & Steenbeck. Cleaning the airbrush and replacing the parts. Now I do not think about changing. I finished the engine cowling... and the propeller. And after everything glued and ready I started painting the model. Bottom of the model. Landing gear doors and rear landing gear. Additional deposit. Regards ajcmac

    This has been standing in the paintings because I had a problem with the airbrush. Nozzle, air cap or needle ??? To be sure, I bought the complete set. In the meantime I glued the model. Missing the machine gun in the cockpit because following the Hasegawa scheme does not enter. I did an experiment and got glue at the end. It even avoids complications in painting. Regards ajcmac

    Coolboxx The quality of the kit helps a lot. It's a great kit. Fused fuselage lines were sanded to remove the glue marks and glued the rear stabilizers. The propeller with weathering. Now another layer of glocc clear, a wash and then mate clear. Regards ajcmac

    While waiting for the arrival of some paints I went ahead some parts. Wings and auxiliary tank already glued. I painted the wheels. I applied some weathering on the engine cover, landing gear and sights. I forced a little because with the application of clear almost everything fades. Regards ajcmac

    Cees From the Tamiya and Hasegawa instruction sheets is the color they indicate. I also saw several photos of the A6M5 (black and white) and they all have very dark landing gear that seems to be black. I also got this photos and the landing gear is black. The first is a kit. Regards ajcmac
