Tamiya 1/32nd A6M5 Zero

By Chris Savaglio

The project sort of hit the skids at the end, but I fought through. I had issues with the canopy...my own paint issues, not anything with the kit. It's how it goes some times...

All of the markings were painted on except the few stencils, which were Hobby Decal. All of the non-white ones went down just fine. The white ones were so bad that even if I removed them from the backing paper with a knife tip, the still wouldn't stick to the surface. Even though the black and colored ones went on OK, they were still far more stubborn than any transfers I've ever used before, such as Archer, generic lettering ones, or the Woodland Scenics ones I've used.
