Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero

Description

Here is my Tamiya 1/32 A6M5 Zero Type 52.

The Eduard photo-etched cockpit set was used (most of the parts anyway), as well as about 70% of the PE engine set.

All paints used were from Testor.

The chipping was achieved by painting Testor's buffable Metalizer as an undercoat, followed by a protective coat of future, and finally a top coat of the camoulfage colors.

Finally, when the paint was dry, I wrapped masking tape
around my fingers and dabbed it on the surface of the model to chip the paint.
