    A 1:32 Hasegawa Japanese A6M5c Zero.
    I used to built 1:35 armor and dioramas and 1:32 planes in my younger days until i got into restoring classic Cadillacs and emergency vehicles. I was at a car show/swap meet and a guy had a bunch of models for sale, I couldn't pass up the only 1:32 he had! It took about 5 days to build.

    Very nice job! The tail markings are decals? The characters look different from one side to the other.. Any change of a pic of the cockpit interior?

    The guy was a bit disingenuous not giving me the credit for the roundels I am famed worldwide for my ability to draw a perfect circle especially in red.

    the tail markings are painted on, its random letters and I dont know what they mean, but they looked official!!!

    I try not to use decals unless i cant paint it on...

    SPECIAL THANKS TO: Tail End Charlie, for the exquisite red suns!

    :D I was of course joking, I thought it was super detailing and that some Japanese Zeros had the circles painted on free hand. It looks great BTW
