The third of my Japanese aircraft, an Airfix Mitsubishi Zero. Built OOB with H models decals for an aircraft captured by US Marines in June 1944 on Saipan Island. Tamiya painta nd quick oil wash for panel lines.

Interesting markings and paint scheme.

 

And the camouflage works quite well on your work bench!

Thanks, you can't beat the Airfix starter kits fot value for money and the H Model decals are excellent for use and subject matter.

Great results Neil!!!!!  I`ve never seen a Zero in that type of paint scheme and I like it.  Not only does your`s look great, but it would stand out within a group of Zeros.  Again........very impressive!!!!!

Nice!  The finish looks superb, and its a far cry from the old Airfix Zero I built about 40 years ago. 

Mind you, the planespotter in me wants to say it is an A6M2 :)

Hi,

 

very well done! I love the camo and your build is spotless!

I think too, like @Putty Animal that this is an A6M2. The A6M3, if my deficient memory still works, should have "square" wing tips.

 

But semantics notwithstanding, it is still a great build!

The Airfix Zero is indeed an A6M2, Model 21.  You are thinking of the early A6M3 Model 32, which did indeed have squarer wing tips on a shorter span, but the later A6M3 Model 22 went back to the original wing after complaints from the users.

I was going to ask if this was a Type 22 with Type 21 cowling, I see I've been beaten to it!
