    Nice work on the pit. I really like the Japanese subjects especially the Tamiya zero's.

    One question - and this is exactly A6M3? I thought that the modification of the M3 was not folded wingtips

    I have been thinking the same thing too, Hartmann.
    A friend of mine once researched actual relics of the A6M3 models 32 and 22.
    He reported the folding parts like the hand lever were still left on the rib number 26 of the model 32 in spite of no need but, on the other hand, the folding function was killed for the Model 22.

    Rear cockpit decking should be Blue-Black along with the decking under the forward windscreen, internal framing should also be this colour.
