A Zero from the Tainan Fighter Group, Buna, East-New Guinea, 1942-1943.
This is a real Oldie. A classic kit from the Tamiya range. Something reengraved. The rest build oob. Hinomarus and stripes painted on. The rest are original kit decals.[...]
Presented for iModeler colleagues and friends, the Tamiya A6M5c Zero from 1983. Though the model is old, it is still quite good, in my opinion. After doing my N1K1 Shiden, I had an urge to do its contemporary, the late-war version of the famo[...]
I had a desire to make an airplane in the painting of the school unit. And this is how this Zero-Sen model from the Oita flight school was created. I did an attractive painting of the lower surfaces with H24 paint. Cockpit details such as instru[...]
A long time ago I wanted to build a Zero-Sen Hasegawa 1:72 model. Then, however, it did not come out as I would have liked. I have come back to the subject again with much more experience and now I present the results. Works finished two weeks ago.
Hello. This is my first work presented on this website.

Just completed the superlative Tamiya Zero. it is a much more complex kit than I am used to building, but it went together without a hitch. this was my first attempt with multilayer chipping, and I have learned some lessons that I will use for[...]
The most iconic Japanese aircraft is easily the Mitsubishi A6M, and Tamiya's most recent tooling from 2008 absolutely does justice to such a plane. Before going any further this kit can be summed up as 'absolutely recommended', or 'one of the [...]
It's funny, but you will forgive me (I hope): since I returned to this hobby after more than 40 years of absence, I am amazed to retrace paths that others younger than me have already traveled. I have rediscovered a state of the art light years [...]
I like to think I know a fair bit about WW2 aviation, but I didn't expect how massive the G4M1 was until the box arrived in the post. At a wingspan of 41.6cm, and a fuselage length of 51.8cm, this model dwarfs anything else I've made and doesn't[...]
I found myself inspired by the many wonderful aircraft found on iModeler...so I dug this Zero from the stash thinking it would be a relative short build compared to some of my armor projects. I underestimated the "short build" part, low parts c[...]
