1/48 Tamiya A6M2 Type 21 Zero.
Tamiya Zero kits have been on the market for many years. While not as detailed as more current releases, they still build into respectable models.
I added a few details to the cockpit and re-scribed a few panel that that were lost during construction. Ignition wires for the engine and brake lines for the landing gear were fabricated from soft wire. I used Floquil aged concrete and light grey for the much debated grey/green. The tail markings are from an old AeroMaster decal sheet and I am not 100% sure of their accuracy. I chose to paint the tail band blue as I liked how this looks against the grey/green. I guess one could consider this model more fiction than fact, but I feel Floquil aged concrete is a respectable match for the overall color.
