A6M5 HEI “Never GIve UP!”

Hello. This is my first work presented on this website.
A6M5 HEI - Saburo Sakai "Never Give Up!". Yokosuka Kaigun Kokutai ヨ-137 Japan 1945. An amazing story locked in the plane of the famous pilot Saburo Sakai San. I added some parts like the Eduard photo-etch cockpit, the resin Quick Boost pilot seat, the Cannon and the Aber machined barrel machineguns. Ammo Mig radio line. Decals from HMD.

  3. That's a greyst Zero, Lis!
    Hard to believe it's only 1/72!
    Welcome aboard!

  4. Thanks to everyone for the nice comments! I am very pleased to be with you in the group. If you have any questions for construction, I am happy to answer

  5. Smart looking Zero, Lis, it definitely looks bigger than 1/72, all the extra detail you added really makes it a stand out model. I liked it.

  6. Thank you for all the nice comments. I made two mistakes in the model. Canopy decking the cabin is Nakajima Geen color, it should be faded gray. The propeller spinner should have a wider red part. I made model before A6M5 Hasegawa, and I didn't have some informations about right painting.

  7. Great work! Welcome to the gang...
