  1. Hi George!
    Having followed this build from the start, I can say I am deeply amazed.
    This is a wonderful build of a not so often seen scheme.
    I love the worn camo, among others.
    All the best, my friend!

  2. Awesome work here George. Well Done!

  3. This came put very well George. Unique scheme rarely seen. It was fun to see you achieve an excellent result on a good Hase kit. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Nice one George, not the usual Zero livery, although this one is also quite famous. Good work mate

  5. Great work George, I really like this very not often seen scheme!

  6. Hey George ! @blackadder57
    This Zero turned out magnificent... and it looks great in the markings under "new ownership". What strikes me the most is how you achieved the look of how the paint chips. It's a very convincing rendering. I enjoyed following along with the build journal... Thanks for accepting the invitation. There's still time to do more should you decide to build a few more models. Thanks again my friend.

  7. Great build, George.
    Weathering is fantastic on this Zero.
    Capturing markings always make a plane look so different than usual.

  8. Thanks for sharing the journey in groups - this turned out great.

    And now I'll wander over to groups to check the progress in that amazing section of iModeler - happy modeling!

  9. Well done George, took a second glance to realize it was a Zero. Nicely done.

  10. Really nice replica of an unusual subject, George. You don't see many models of such test aircraft and they are an interesting 3D history lesson. All the hard work and patience on the weathering really paid off - it looks spot on. It was fun to see your Zero evolve in the forum. BTW, I am still curious about the settings for your DSLR. Your photos are nice and bright. You may have missed my query about the MiG 3 pics. Always good to be busier modeling than doing social media. 🙂

  11. Very nice! Familiar livery, and you pulled it off perfectly. Well done.

  12. Amazing build and finish! The paint chipping looks great. Is this the same aircraft that is displayed in the IWM London?

  13. Thank you all very much. Colin, I posted a photo article in the "Uncategorized" section. Thiago, I believe it is the same one as the writing is the same. I've seen a photo that has included in the caption that it an A6M3 but I don't think it is correct
