1/72 Hasegawa A6M2b Zero

November 9, 2012 in Aviation

This is my latest build completed a few months ago. This is the 1/72 Hasegawa A6M2b Zero. The model is OOB with the exception of PE seatbelts. I used Gunze Mr Color lacquers to paint it and it was weathered with oils, pencils and pastels.

  1. Well done Geoff. Been meaning to pick up a 72nd Tamiya Zero. have done the 48th, and eager to do the 72nd.

    • Thanks Mark, It is a very nice kit. I have the new Tamiya and the Fine Molds kits as well, but I like this Hasegawa kit very much. It is lacking in cockpit detail, but you wont notice with the closed canopy.

  2. Very nice model. There’s always a risk of these green Zeros looking dull due to an uniform dark finish, but not in this case – I really like your surface weathering. Regards, /M.

  3. It’s Abreu-tiful!!
