A6M2b Zero Lt. Fusata Iida, Carrier Soryu, 07 Dec 1941 [Tamiya 1/32]


Recommended Posts

By far my longest, most involved project to date.


Many people followed along and offered advice and encouragement on my build thread, but I would like to especially call out and thank Ryan (A6M) whose expert advice on all things Zero was immensely helpful and made this a better model than I otherwise would have been able to build.


I tried to up my RFI game a bit on this one by purchasing a cheap tablecloth to use as a background and actually digging out my old DSLR (versus just taking iPhone photos).  Perhaps for the next model I will further improve on this by ironing the tablecloth...


First some shots featuring the detailed innards of the forward fuselage, plus the folded wingtips.

And then with the wingtips extended and cowling buttoned up, as spotted on deck prior to the raid on Pearl Harbor.






(the extended version of the wingtips has too thin a coat of paint on them.  I will fix this at some point...)








And one of the undersides, for completeness
