1/72 Mitshubishi A6M3,Typ 32,ZERO,”Hamp” Q-102
Mitshubishi A6M3 typ32, ZERO, "Hamp" serial number3030
petty officer 1st.class Kazuo Tsunoda, 2nd Air group 26.8.1942
Buna ,New Guinea.
Build from the box with some added necessary details from the wires.
Painted with MRP paint and AK real colors.
Decals some paint airbrush.
Numbers from Fine Molds because Tamiya's wrong codes and oversized.
It’s a gem of a kit. A very good paintwork and rendition of the ame-iro colour in my opinion. I like it!
What was the brand you used for the ame-iro, MRP or AK?
Since MRP is not yet move with Japanese paints. I resorted to AK real color but they have disadvantages that decal softer melts the color and varnishes of Ak. So I put 3 layers of MRP gloss.
Thanks Samo! I have used Micro Sol/Set over some Gloss varnished AK lacquers (RC) with no issues at all. There are other decal softener solutions a lot stronger of course, perhaps you used one of those brands, no? Anyway thanks pointing out the paint
Amazing work, Samo, unbelievable for 1/72!
Excellent work! Love the family photo!
Nice work here.
Fantastic result, Samo @politicni-komisar
Hard to believe this is 1/72.
Very nice work.
That's a great-looking Zero - well done!
Very good Hamp! A long time ago I build Q-102 🙂
