My latest project, the Hasegawa 1/72 A6M2b. Painted with Gunze Mr Color. It just needs a couple of small touch ups with the airbrush (I found a few spots under the magnifier tonight :0(. I will try and get more done tomorrow. Hope you like it so far.

so let's see if I understand

Mitsubishi - camo line goes straight, wheel wells are underside color, blue-black cowl, olive green interior
Nakajima - camo line sweeps up, wheel wells are aotake, grey-black cowl, grey green interior

Did I get that right?

And that looks excellent!!! The photos and detail make it look larger than 1/72 - very nice.

Splendid build!

Very well executed shading. I am a bit of a Zero novice, so are those white stripes personal markings or perhaps theatre markings?

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature WWI Aircraft Kits.

  1. This Group Build will run until 31 December, 2011.

  2. Build as many kits as you like.

  3. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  4. Any markings are acceptable.

  5. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
