Hi Mac , nice subject choice, I've one in the stash as well, so I'm interested in watching you start yours. Might mount mine on a stand wheels up in flight, we'll see when it makes it to the bench. These days I draw straws about which kit emerges from the stash as a build, after my P40 warhawk is finished (soon) it will be time to re-draw. cheers Oz

You made a nice start on this.

Not being very current on Japanes types but was the landinggear indeed black?

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.

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.
