I've started building of Tamiyas A6M2 Zero (Zeke). It is a very simple kit, so it shouldn't take alot of time to finish.😉

Thanks Sören! 🙂 You were pretty fast yourself with the comment, you beat me to it.😉

As soon as I saw "Zero" nothing could stop me😉

Base camo finished. This is a compressed build. I'm trying to finish it as I'm back at work tomorrow..

Todays work was getting everything ready for weathering. Closing in on the finish line with the Zero.😉

Some people start with zero, but you do it the other way round. ;)

Lol! Well this is my second zero, so I guess I'm a double 0..😉

Thanks Sören and James! 🙂
@Sören I'll have to sit down with a cold beer and think about that..😉

Can I make a suggestion, what I would love to see from you?😉

Björn Svedberg
You can, but I must admit, I have selective hearing.😉

Well, I'm really excited about japanese planes at the moment, and I just ordered the Oscar, so I think that might be the one..

Soeren .
Good, because that was the one I would have suggested😉
The Hasegawa or the FineMiolds kit?

nicely done 👍

Hello Björn as you know a very convincing model, perfectly built and painted 👍 👍 👍

Its a really nice kit - like the B5N - so I take a wild guess and say that you will have a lot of fun with her😉

Thank you Jens! 🙂 But not perfect.., I forgot to paint the back side of the propeller matt black to prevent glare. I will have to fix that eventually.
@Sören I hope I will 🙂

Maybe someone can answer this: Since they were making planes out of wood due to a shortage of metal, wouldn't their props be made of wood also? Looks good Bjorn, Nice work!
