    Hello all,

    I have been a radio control airplane builder for about 25 years now and in the process of finishing a A6M5 Zero. I have found that the model building section WWII is an awesome place to find scale document ion for my last several builds.

    I would luv to do this Zero in a any camouflage color scheme other than the standard solid green, can anyone provide some photo's of a Zero in any camouflage version?, the scheme does not have to be a -5 version.
    Greatly appreciate any info anyone could provide any info, I have attached some photo's of my P-40 I just finished and have 6 test flights on, I hope I re-sized them correctly.

    Zero
    94" wingspan
    71CC Sachs Dolmar Chainsaw engine converted
    Pneumatic retracts

    Nice work but the pics are really big. Can you resize them?

    That looks fantastic
    they're a bit big though, try re-sizing them at 800 pixels, the vertical dimension should autosize when you change it

    Nice hawk! I've occasionally seen pics of tri-color camos on Zeros but they may have been exceptions to the rule, or perhaps "what-ifs." My understanding is that they used primarilly two-color schemes. Here's a page you may be interested in...
