Ye Olde Zero
In an all out super human effort, I’ve decided to build a couple of models that have been waiting for quite sometime in my stash of unbuilt kits. The first being this Hasegawa A6M2 to be followed by an Airfix P-40B, at least that’s my hope. Both kits have decals for aircraft that were at Pearl Harbor on that Day of Infamy so long ago.
It’s my understanding that there were two different interior colors.
From looking at the attached photos, it looks like Olive Drab and a US interior green would be pretty close ? Close enough? The instructions say to use blue-green, did some earlier aircraft have the cockpit in that color instead of the other two OD/ green colors? Japanese and Russian aircraft from ww2 seem to be more mysterious as far as paint colors go. Tamiya has a IJN gray paint I thought I’d use for the airframe.
Any advice or encouragement from the peanut gallery would be welcomed.
