Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero x2


Recommended Posts

Here are a couple of Sweet 1:144 Mitsubishi A6M5 Zeros I built back in 2011.
These are delightful little kits which require a little work but nothing too complex and no filler.

I built them OOB just adding the missing wing pitot tube from stretched sprue and, of course, the radio wire.

They were both painted by brush and only the final varnish was airbrushed.

 

1. Mitsubishi A6M5 Type 52 Zero 53-104, of 253rd Flying Group, Imperial Japanese Navy, flown by W.O. Tetsuzo Iwamoto, from Rabaul Tobera AB, New Britain Island, in February 1944.

Hi Miguel. Great pair and hard to believe the scale. I have built several Sweet Mustangs and was very impressed. 

Yes, Sweet's Mustangs are real gems. I've built three and have plenty more in my stash!
