Trumpeter 1/24 scale Mitshibusi A6M2 mod 21 Zero
This kit have been standing on the shelf for quite awhile. This weekend I decided to have a quick and easy build.
The kit went together very nicely with very few fit problems. The cockpit is well detailed. I only added seat belts from lead foil and scratch etched buckles. I added wiring on the interior as well as on the engine.
The paint I mixed myself from a mixture of Humbrol enamels and Tamiya acrylics until I was happy with the shade. I primed the aircraft with Humbrol metalizer aluminium before pre shading with black green and over spraying the light green. I lightly weathered using oils as well as silver pencil and paint for the chipping.
I am quite happy with the outcome and another biggie added to my collection.
