The Great LSP Twins Group Build Starts Jan 24, 2024 - End July 3, 2024 ×

Recommended Posts

After some short run kits I needed a kit that would fit better.

So a Tamiya 1/32 kits was the natural choice for me, it's my first but certainly not the last :D

 

The cockpit is almost done, it has stretched my painting skills and yes, next time I will use a different painting method for some small parts.

 

Here some pictures,

Marking sprayed on.

The nose is sprayed in aluminium first, next  AK Worn Effects and then black with a drop of blue.

Some parts have got a coat of clear varnish.

To make it ready for some small decals.

And then finishing of with a bit of weathering , these early Zero's are not that weathered as the late ones.

A few steps back to correct a stupid mistake I made  <_<
One of the Hinomaro's on the upper wings was not in line
So it had to be removed , basic paint applied again and redo the Hinomaro.
And redo the weathering, al done with Tamiya weathering tools.
