A6M2N Rufe, 1/72 Revell,Lodela{Frog]

Another obscure kit from the cheap seats. I found this in a hobby shop which sells older kits. Lodela's/Revell 1/72 Nakajima Rufe, the kit date backs to the late seventies and it's supposed to be Frog molds. A very basic kit, more basic then t[...]

Hasegawa 1/48 A6M2 Zero

With Louis Gardner's article series on Japanese aircraft colors ramping up ( I thought I'd deliver my take on the early war Mitsubishi A6M2. Hasegawa's Zero has been around for 25 years now, and it is still a very nice kit. It comes together [...]

Random thoughts on Japanese colors. The Japanese A6M Zero…Part 1

Japanese A6M Zero Colors.......... Part 1 I recently posted a similar article to this one about WW2 Japanese Aviation colors. It was not completely prepared so I removed the original posting. This is along the same line as my original inte[...]

Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero Nightfighter

The final years of war were troublesome to the Japanese industry. The initial production of the famous Zero were up to the highest standards,to the point pilots rather be flying one of the old fighters due to its superior operational readiness [...]

FineMolds 1/72 A6m5b model 52 ZEKE (Nakajima built)

My last completed build for 2018. FineMold's example of the late war Zeke. I'll have to get around to building one of Tamiya's 1:72 A6Ms to do a fair assessment of FineMold's offering. Fit was very good, detail very fine, but lacking in some mi[...]

1/48 Tamiya A6M3 Zero

I was quite dissapointed when I opened this kit. Not many parts, not too much details, it seemed like underestimated myself. But, I had to add at least one Japanese WWII aircraft to my collection, and I did not expect too much from $20 kit. Stil[...]

My Collection

Hi! I'm new to iModeler and thought I'd introduce myself by showing off my cool little collection. These are all paint-brushed models. Feel free to question or comment. I like to think of myself as an intermediate modeler because I have been thr[...]

Mitsubishi A6M2 – Zero; Tamiya, 1/48

This plane represents one of the 2nd wave that stroke Pearl Harbour, from the Akagi. I scribed lots of panel lines and rivets so, at the end, did a heavy weathering to made those work pop. After a break of almost 30 years, I have lots of old box[...]
