Some notes about the modelThese are two Tamiya 1:48 scale A6M5 Zero models. I chose to do the two variants proposed in the kit by the japanese manufacturer (A6M5 and A6M5a). I used the kit's decals for the markings and Tamiya acrylic paints. I've mixed my own colors because I wanted to depict the color differences between a Mitsubishi and a Nakajima built aircraft.
Except from the aerial wires, everything is from the box, though one of the models has benefited from the Tamiya detail set destined to the kit. The four pilot figures which are included in the Zero box are really fantastic. The Kurogane is also from Tamiya.
To make the propeller turn during the photo session I have usedů a hair dryer.
