Were the propellers on the A6M's that attacked pear harbor, bare metal, with the back outer surfaces painted flat black? I can find nothing definitive in my references. I'm quite sure the spinners were natural metal though. Thanks a bunch for any help.
As is my usual practice to start a new kit on new year's eve, I'll be starting this kit in a few hours. I had originally been planning a 1:32 P-38 Lightning for one of three projects I intend to take to our local event in September of 2020, but have changed my mind, and will be going this route instead. As long as I can avoid the temptation to spend any cash on AM stuff, this should be a breeze.

The second kit of my summer '16 start with hopes to finish by 7 Dec for 75 anniversary. Pearl Harbor P36, P40B, A6M2b. Life hit the fan and bench time kept to minimum.

Nishikaichi crash landed his aircraft after receiving damage during the second wave attack at Pearl Harb
