Description

Here is my Trumpeter 1/24 scale A6M2 Zero Type 21.

The kit did not present any problems to build except the wing tips that needed filling at the join with the wings.

The only non-standard items are scratch built seat belts and modified landing gear doors.

I focused in the Sakae engine, adding some scratch details here and there such as engine flaps. I rebuilt the engine mounts with steel tubes too.

My Zero is finished in Testors enamels, mixing some colours to match the Ame Iro Japanese Navy color.

The markings represent one of Saburo Sakai planes. I based the scheme on a profile from the French magazine Avions. Tail markings were made with my Alps printer and the rest were painted with an airbrush.
