Zero walkaround

April 6, 2017 in Aviation

Since several people are doing Japanese aircraft for the Midway build, perhaps these shots of the disassembled Planes of Fame A6M5a Zero may be useful. This is a Nakajima-built airplane, and Steve Hinton – who has been directly involved in all the restorations of this airframe – told me that the colors in these shots were copied directly during restoration from the original items with the first restoration from original 45 years ago. These colors would be good for any Nakajima airplane – Zeke, Kate, Jill, etc.
