Which is Tamiya's UBER Zero kit

Recommended Posts

Ay'up,

Which Tamiya Zero kit in 1/32 is the equivalent of their new Spit kit?

There seem to be two kits listed and roughly the same price:

This one

and

THIS ONE

Anybody? :footy:

James- both kits are very similar- They are of similar stature to the Spitfire- but in themselves -although Zero shaped- they are from opposite ends of the Zero spectrum- the first to the last, and as such, the wings engine armament and so on are all different- but basically, both are produced to the same standard.

What Mr Guru said...

I can only ad that the earlier one was later - and the later one earlier! :)

Sorry - meant that the A6M2b was the more recent of the two kits - and is, possibly, slightly nicer!

I've built the Lights Sound Action version of the A6M5 (as many who have had to put up with it at Telford in recent years will testify) and can report it is a corker.

Even with all the electronic gubbins - mine only took three days to build.

Must crack on the the A6M2b - I hear Hawaii calling me! ;)

Either of them are a real treat James - I'm just a little biased towards the earlier variant. :)

Tamiya do pots of paint for the specific grey - which isn't a pure grey...

For specifics on Zero colors, visit the gurus over at j-aircraft. The overall gray is actually more of a light tan with a slight greenish cast. At their suggestion I used Gunze RLM 02 on a 1/72 A6M2 and was quite pleased with the result.
