COVID No. 2-Hasegawa Mitsubishi A6M5b

December 24, 2020 · in Aviation · · 7 · 1.6K

This is the newer Zero kit- A6M5c changed to -5b. I had to modify the wings and fuselage. Removed the machine guns in the wings, and filled in panel lines and rescribed for the 5b. Also, modified the cowl to add the larger gun housed in the fuselage. Interior details added, but I couldn’t avoid hiding much of it though. I HAD to use the pilot included in the kit- very nice. Tamiya, Model Master, and Vallejo paints. Added brake lines. Very nice kit to build.
