Japanese Zero pilot, 1/48 scale
Posted by Justinryan215 on Saturday, September 23, 2017 6:59 PM

This is from a soon to be project.  It is the Tamiya 1/48 A6m5 Zero.  I started working on a few of the the accessories to the build, such as a base and this guy, one of the five figures included in the kit...

Beautiful work! 

But look out for that mold seam line on the sword hand.

I know...I saw that only after magnification!  Luckily, it's not super visible to the unaided eye.  *this photo was shot through my bench top magnifier*

Yes Digital photographs are merciless for picking up things our Mk.I eyeball often cannot see. Shooting thru a magnifier.... obviously magnifies that likelihood... Wink pun intended... 

Is that figure from the new tool Tamiya A6M5 Zero?

If the new tooling release was the one that was released about nine years ago, then....yes!  My wife bought it for me as my first Father's Day gift the month before my son was born.  I have finally gotten the inspiration to get started.  Now I need the time!  Lol

but i suspect that is a fairly common problem...

Looks good! 1/48th figures can be a pain considering the size of them, 1/35th isn't that much bigger but I still find them easier to paint. 

Yes
