1/48 Tamiya A6M3 Type 32
This kit is certainly showing it’s age as the detail is very limited and its very basic when compared with today’s releases from Tamiya or Hasegawa. The engine is only half molded, and the kit is an odd mix of raised (which I rescribed) and recessed panel lines, the fit of canopy isn’t great and the cockpit detail is very sparse and flat, the flaps are not poseable. I detailed the cockpit with a zoom set from Eduard and added some basic detail to machine guns in the cockpit area. However this was the first kit I built after a nearly 15 year absence from the hobby and it like my skills back then are both showing their age. I think I might strip the paint off it and give it another “go”
