  1. Next build is this Hasegawa A6M5 Type 52 Zero Night Fighter (Kit no 08252). This kit will be built mostly OOB, with a few AM enhancements, and I will be using the kit decals to cut masks from for painting. (Scheme as per the box art) The aircraft will be built with a closed canopy - to show off the 20mm cannon that was installed in the rear part of the cockpit fuselage decking. Having an open canopy would hide the defining part of this aircraft - so I will not be going to town on the cockpit - it will be built OOB with nothing extra than some HGW belts. I have a HGW rivet set to throw at it, as well as Master brass barrels and Eduard wheels and CMK Bay doors. I also have an Eduard exterior detail that I bought for my Tamiya Zero (built) but never used it. Thought I might use it on this kit, but some measuring, looking at fit, etc later. I've decided against it as the design of this Tamiya-specific AM wouldn't work well. So the wheels wells remain as they are, and the flaps will remain up! The gear wells will do, perhaps a line or two will be added. So far I've snipped the major parts off the sprues, and completed the assembly work on some sub-assemblies. Most of it is only dry fitted at the moment, but parts like the cockpit assemblies are ready for paint Fuselage halves are only dry-fitted together, as well as the engine. It seems to go together pretty well!! I've drilled out the holes in the cylinders for the ignition wires, etc I made rivets on the rear cockpit decking, this was missing on the kit, but quite prominent on the real a/c. Will have to redo some of them methinks once I glue it all together The kit gear legs with the Eduard wheels and CMK doors. CMK only provides two support struts between the doors and the legs, should be three, so I'll have to SB another one, but that shouldn't take too long at all!
  2. Hi guys! Finally, we are ready to introduce some new Proper Plane products! We have spent a huge amount of time and effort to create a unique high quality product. We would like to thank Dave Douglass for his professionalism, endurance and patience. Dave, you are the godfather of this project. Many thanks! It is a perfect carry bag for the connoisseur of Great War Aviation. The bag measures 35cm x 42cm (14in x 17in), is tough and durable, and fully washable as it’s made up of 80% polyester and 20% cotton. The perfect companion for hobby shopping or general shopping! Have a look at them! www.ProperPlane.com
  3. Hi guys, I could've sworn there was a Tweak List for Tamiya's 1/32 Zero somewhere, at least for the A6M5. I can't seem to find it anywhere, though. Someone an idea where I might look? Thanks! Erik B.
  4. I was tinkering with the idea of trying to make the Tamiya A6M5 an A6M7. What all would I need for this conversion? I know I'd need wing tanks from some other model perhaps a Ki-61 Tony? A centerline bomb, which I have a spare from the Doyusha A6M2 Bakusen kit. What all will I need to do to the guns in the wings and possibly the cowling too? I may find this project too overwhelming and just say the heck with it, but I wanted to ask anyway. I'm thinking I want an A6M7 like Hasegawa makes in 1/48 scale with wing tanks and a centerline bomb. After that the challengebwill be markings. Cheers, Brady
  5. Tower Hobbies has the Tamiya Action Sound A6M5 on clearance sale for $255 shipped (in the US): http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LR2127 Using Ad number 011WE to get $25 off of the $270.22 price tag to brings it down to $245.22, and then adding the regular shipping fee of $9.99 gives you the to-your-door price of $255.21. Considering the MSRP for this kit is $512, it looks like a pretty good deal (if you're in the US and into Zeros). D Disclaimers: TO poster is not affiliated with Tower hobbies, just passing on what appears to be a pretty good deal. It is understood that those outside the US might not be able to participate in Tower's offer due to taxes, shipping costs and/or other issues in their home countries. There's no need to use this thread as a sounding board for those problems.
