1/72 Academy A6M5C Zero

by Murli Rajan



Well re-runs of Pearl Harbor egged me on to build this kit. Luckily the only shop in the whole of Mumbai ( Bombay ) happened to stock the zero.

The kit as such was a breeze to assemble though the fit in some places leaves a lot to be wanted.  I built this kit straight out of the box. I built over the weekend. Itís a very easy kit to make. 

I used Academy enamels mixed and matched to paint the kit. Soap and acrylic wash for the panel lines and rivets. Decals used were the ones supplied in the box. All in all this is a real easy kit make, ideal for the weekend project.

Ciao! happy modeling
