    Very nice looking Corsair Miloslav! I like this scheme, it's a bit different than the usual!

    Tamiya A6M2 Type 21 - Mojo Reisen

    Mike- Thank you very much--you also got the "lyrical" connection! Shaka- Thank you--I appreciate your kind words! Eagle- Thank you. I'm working on an the Tam A6M5 now... so hopefully have another built soon! Bill- Thank you sir. It's a lot of research, but in the end it came down to what I wanted it to look like. Japan had a different fighting theology at the time, didn't they? Gigant- Thank you for the complement! This was the first model I've built since the 90s, and it was tough not to rush through and finish. I have a gusto to get paint on them, and slowing down and getting all the boring parts done first really tries my patience, but I'm getting better at it, thanks to the many fine contributors on this site. Thank you, Tom
  9. Hello- These are pics of my Tamiya A6M2 1/32nd scale Type 21. My model depicts the aircraft of NAP1/C Tsuguo Matsuyama during the 2nd strike of the Pearl Harbor attack. The kit took me a long time to build, mainly due to life's interruptions, such as going back to college for a master's degree, and other situations. Anyway, it's an excellent kit, the fit is great unless you add too many details (I found that out during the build and it slowed me down) but, in the end, the kit fits together easily (typical of Tamiya), and it was a lot of fun. I used mostly GSI Mr. Hobby Colors for the build, along with Taiya paints, Alclad II lacquer, Vallejo acrylics, lots of Future, and even some blue food coloring . The tires and drop flaps were aftermarket resin, I added wiring in the cockpit and on the engine, and the seatbelts are the ones included in the kit, which are probably the weakest part of the model. Overall though, I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Thanks for looking!
