1/32 Tamiya A6M2 Zero


Recommended Posts

Another I did a while back. Tamiya's A6M2b Zero. As far as a quality build goes, this kit was a foretelling of things to come. I hope you like her.

 

The antenna got broke off during my move to Jersey.

Thanks everyone. Actually, I should have learned from this one but obviously didn't. This was done in 2008 and as my more recent work shows, I am still nervous about weathering. Figure that one out, LOL.  :wallbash: This was NOT pre-shaded. This was a post paint job wash with Burnt Sienna diluted with 90% thinner over a clear spray. Then it was matte coated.

Beautiful Zero, like this one a lot!  A little note about Zero antennas- a lot of them were removed as the radios were often removed to save weight.  Typically, they just cut them off flush with the canopy.  If you want, you could do the same and call it intentional!

Whoa. Nice looking Zero. I think the weathering is really nice too. I'm going to have to tackle one of these sometime.
