    So which captured Aircraft are you doing?

    You may need to do some minor modification on this one...If I remember correctly I don't recall A6M5c version captured by the RAAF only the standard A6M5 model.

    Good start mate!

    The Academy's not a bad kit, only problems I found were that flat sliding canopy section, shallow wheel wells, and a slight fit problem at the rear fueslage/ wing join.

    Got me itching to do my A6M5-k conversion now...

    Some very nice work going on here.

    I take it Sergio that this is an entry into the GB, if so could you please nominate the category you are entering in. I also gather that this is a 1/72 scale model, would that be correct. I have also taken the liberty of including the GB rules link where you will find the breakdown of the entry categories.

    Nice Sergio, do you want to make the modifications to this version of the Zero to make the correct model ?

    If not, 2 simple things you can do, don't include the outer guns and fill those gun ports, and remove the small set of rails under the wings which were for small bombs or air to air rockets.

    Vic Balshaw thanks and sorry i didn't know already changed hope this good

    wayne yes, I had not thought about the change it completely because I have no very clear pattern that is I think is the 5c but I can not dispel the doubts so it will eliminate foreign weapons (and did), and will eliminate the supports of the wings, guided me for photos
