    Hi to all

    Finished well known Academy model A6M5c Zero, flown by Takeo Tanimizu.
    Model is finished out of box with addition of cockpit details (harnesses, guns drilled,) Colors Gunze, Hinomaru are airbrushed, satin gunze warmish, wash artistic oil colors. I was not sure which level of chipping i need to apply, so i decide not to ruin very much this plane, as on one picture i sow, where Tanimizu looking at kill marks, fuselage looks not so chipped.....so i decide to stay on low damage side.
    Also i planned to put air to air bombs (rockets) but as Academy did not put reils for them only mounting points i will mount them when i make rails...will update post with photos...
    Sorry for long text...pictures
    Best regards to all
    critiques welcomed as always
