Tamiya 1/48 Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero completed (picture)

  • This is a very nice kit. It is hard to believe the molds are 20 years old. Great price too. 

    Hop you like it.

  • I've got this kit in the stash! Very nice job. I too liked the price. How did you mask the canopy?
  • Nicely done!  All of the extra work you put into this one really paid off. Thumbs Up [tup]

    Ahhh! Don't ask me about the canopy!  It was truely the only un-enjoyable part of the build. As I told some fellow modelers at breakfast a few days ago, I am lucky there was not a revolver next to me while I was painting the canoy or I might not be here Banged Head [banghead]

    To answer your question though, I masked it with Tamiya tape. I masked and painted all the horizontal lines first. Then painted the vertial lines. Then I masked the remaining odd angles of the windscreen.

  • Very nicely done!  My only criticism is, next time, post more pics!  Wink [;)] Would love to see some other angles.

  • Now that's a clean Build.  Glad to see someone buck the trend of overly weathered models.  Nicely done Thumbs Up [tup].

  • Awesome job! I am also interested on how you masked the canopy.
