  1. I've used them on a couple of 48 scale projects and was very pleased. Responded well to microsol/set and snuggled right down as they should.
  2. That is one well worn bird. Lovely.
  3. Montex has a couple of super mask sets, and IIRC CAM used to produce decals for this kit.
  4. Fwiw: http://gunsight.jp/b/english/data/sight-e.htm http://gunsight.jp/b/english/data/sight-eg.htm "Japanes (sic) Navy Type 98 GunSight of the navies that are the copy of the Revi-2b Gunsight of Germany and the improvement of the protection etc. is donet, after that." EDIT: the Doyusha Type 98 is useless. You might want to take another look at the 21C version. Imo it's a good starting point as the basic shape is correct. Add a photoetch ring sight and replace the molded reflectors with some clear film and you're in business.
  5. If I'm not mistaken that's a Model 22 (rounded wingtips).
  6. http://www.j-aircraft.com/faq/A6M_pt4.htm The cockpit deck was black both in front and behind the cockpit as was the interior of the canopy framing.
  7. http://www.j-aircraft.com/faq/A6M.htm#Zero Cockpit Colors Posted By: James F. Lansdale <mailto:LRAJIM@aol.com?subject=Re: Zero Cockpit Colors/Saipan Zero [8-07]> Date: Wednesday, 9 August 2000, at 9:25 a.m. In Response To: Zero Cockpit Colors (Ryan Toews) Ryan R. ANDERSON, of the Douglas Aircraft Company at El Segundo, in reporting on the analysis of a Nakajima-built A6M5 model 52 captured at Saipan wrote in February 1945: "Interior metal surfaces of the cockpit enclosure and windshield are painted a matt black to prevent glare. All parts in the cockpit below the level of the enclosure tracks are finished with a yellow-green primer similar in appearance to the zinc-chromate primer used in American airplanes. The cockpit is the only interior area of the fuselage which has been treated with this type of protective finish. Numerous welded steel sheet and tube assemblies are located in the cockpit. None of these parts are protected by plating but are instead covered with a red-oxide primer and a black finish paint. In many places this paint has been chipped off with the result that the steel parts are badly rusted, locking (in certain assemblies) moving parts together." Jim Lansdale
