A6M3 Type 32 Zero 'Hamp' Tamiya 1/72

Recommended Posts

Afternoon All. This is my latest finished model the Tamiya 1/72 A6m3 Hamp. This is a really nice kit that goes together really well. I can't think of any problem areas at all. The only issues were a self-inflicted decal disaster which ended up needing a complete strip-down and repaint. I always have at least one DOH! moment per kit. Anyways here are some pics.

Nice clean build, and not over weathered.

 

Which paint did you use for the amber grey?

Hi Ian thanks for your comment. As for the paint I used Tamiya xf76 IJN grey/green over a black base coat. My intention was to add some interest to a potentially dull single colour plane. I don’t think my photos show this but there is a subtle variation to the colour. 

 

Cheers Allan

Great Zero. Have heard the kit is superb. Yours shows it.

Thanks glatisant for your comment.

The problem with the Zero is that it has near perfect proportions. The problem with Tamiya kits is a near perfect reproduction of the Zero.  So it looks easy. 

Your near perfect production of both is clearly no accident. 

Really like it.
