1/72 Airfix A6M2b Zero

December 27, 2021 · in Aviation · · 10 · 1.5K

My final build for 2021. I started this on the 2nd of this month to see if I could get a build done in a months time. This is the A6M2b kit. Its mostly OOB. I added PE seatbelts and some gunsight glass. Hinomarus and stripes are painted. The remainder of the markings are from the kit and a Print Scale sheet. The model is painted with and Gunze paints.

  1. What a gorgeous build! Awesome!

  2. Looks like a real gem! Nice work.

  3. Geoffrey,

    Some strong work in the painting dept. Your Airfix kit could pass for Tamiya's version. The canopy is another strong point. A great effort in closing the year with this jewel.

    Had to smash the like button.

    Two thumbs up.
