I mainly use Instagram for my models, so there is a bit more info and updates there. However I will update my projects here from time to time!

I agree!!

Thank you! The color is AK RC303 IJN Amber Grey. It did get a bit darker than I anticipated also the brown oils may have shifted the tone a bit. Ill go with a bit more white in the mix for another build 🙂

Quel magnifique Zero! Bravo!

The zero is simply magnificent!!! Amazing weathering
But the carrier deck is a modern US one, not a WWWII Japanese, right?
26 May, 08:50
I see it is the one you used for the (fantastic ) F-4B build

Thank you!

Haha yeah its the only base I have @Spanjaard. Its from the Tamiya F-14A late kit.
Just something with a dark base that make the colors of the plane easier on the eye 🙂

Don't be too concerned by the deck - remember the movie 'The Final Countdown' 😄 - great build & finish 👍

Thanks AngryJazz. When I do my 1/48 zero, if it looks a third as good as this one, I will be really happy 🙂

Nice build! This is one of the first I've seen. How did you like the kit?
2 August, 17:27
Thank you for the kind words!
@Jim J - it was an excellent kit! Very easy to build and all parts fit well together. With the PE in the profipack you get just the right amount of details.
Only issue was some rivets on the very top and bottom of the main fuselage that were poor and needed to fixed.
