Desk top Zero

After reading Nick Millmans essay on early Zero colours I tried mixing my own colours. I found that my mix was too light and looks even lighter under "flash".

When you have spent years going along with the blue/grey scheme its hard to get your head around the brownish green that has come to light.

Ill go darker on my next one.

 I had no markings for the model so seeing as it was a "Desk top" model I used various decals from the spares box to represent  the early  Zero 22

Hasegawa 1:48 Hien "Swallow"

First two photos are just finishing off

 The completed project.  I admit I forgot to fill in and fair over the cowling gun troughs. This aircraft was apparently fitted for ramming attacks on B-29s.
