Tamiya A6M5a Zero 1/48

September 25, 2019 · in Aviation · · 12 · 2K

Hi there!

Just finished this nice kit. Everything OOB and the only real flaw was one of the decals sheet, the smaller one, most stencils. Without exception, all of them cracked as soon as I tried to move them. I used warm water, cold water, decal solution, you name it, with no success. In some cases I was able to join the pieces and have them in place.

But, as I said, a very nice kit. Hope you'll like it.

  1. Very nice George. Just the right amount of weathering. One in the stash to be built as a British version

  2. Sharp looking Zero.

  3. Turned out nicely I the detail & weathering work.

  4. Thank you all, guys! Cheers!

  5. Like it, esp. the weathering (not to much)

  6. Looks nice! You can always use microscale liquid decal film over old decals to help them hold together better. one or two coats, and then trim close.

    George, that is a splendid work on the ZERO, and the weathering is not overdone. Nice work on the chipping .
