1/48 Tamiya A6M5c Zero

Gallery Article by Paul Coppin on Aug 16 2012



Hi all :) This is my 1/48 Tamiya A6M5c of 1squ.302fg Atsugi.  This kit is all straight out of the box and the overall fit was very good, I decided to give the Zero a weathered and tired look which I used various weathering techniques to achieve.  I made this kit back in 2009 :)

I mainly used Tamiya paints to paint this bird and I enjoyed making this Zero as I experimented with the weathering, I used artist oil mixes and pastels to get the desired effect I wanted and I'm overall happy with the results. This kit also came with 6 ground crew which I'm going to use in a future project. :)

Well I hope you enjoyed my Zero and thanks for looking, I will be putting more of my work on ARC soon. :)
