There are not many images of built-up models of the superlative Fine Molds 1/72nd scale Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero (perhaps because of the odd way it was sold and the price!) - so it is a real pleasure to be able to show these pictures of Joe Youngerman's beautiful creation. Hard to believe that this is not in a larger scale but doubly impressive is the fact that Joe chose the more unusual dark green rather than more common grey option from the kit.
Joe used White Ensign Models paints to create his replica of a 263rd Ku machine, with the exception of the cowling which was finished with Model Master Gun Metal Acrylic.
For those visitors who may not have had the opportunity to appreciate the beauty and detail of this kit a couple of in box reviews may be found here and here.
