Mitsubishi A6M2b Zero

by Bill Weckel


Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero Type 21


Hasegawa's 1/48 scale A6M2 Zero is available online from Squadron.com




This is my Hasegawa 1.48 scale Mitsubishi A6M2b Type 21 Carrier Fighter. To make the model a little more interesting, I opened the cowl flaps, added landing gear position indicators and opened one of the footpegs on the port side.

The paint is a mixture of Testors Model Master IJN Grey and Floquil Railroad Concrete.

The markings are a combination of Hasegawa and Tamiya kit decals and depict a fighter aboard the carrier Akagi during the Hawaiian Operation.

Panel lines were drawn with a drafting pencil the chipped paint on the cowl was done with a colored pencil.
