1/32 Tamiya A6M3 Type 22 converted from A6M5 Type 52
I've always loved the late model Zero with the long cowl, but at the same time thought the camo's were kinda boring. Got my hands on Tamiya's great A6M5 kit and decided to convert it to the A6M3 Type 22 flow by Hiroyoshi Nishizawa, Japan's top ace.
The conversion included putting on the wings from the Tamiya A6M2 kit, which was almost a drop fit, and some minor changes to the cowl intake, cowl flaps, adding Eduard flaps, Quickboost exhausts and CMK wheels
