Japanese Aircraft Online Model Contest 014 - BARONVONROB

I fully realize that my 1/72 Hasegawa A6M3 Model 22 does not qualify for the contest ...but since it seems to be the last model contest for at least the near future thought I could at least be the first to be DQ'd :)) ....additionally it's also the only Zero currently in my hangar and I wanted to participate anyway.

Standard build with Tamiya and Gunze paints depicting the mount of the legendary chief Petty Officer Hiroyoshi Nishizawa of 251st Kokutai in early 1943

I don't see anything wrong with your contribution Baron. Another beautiful model in a small scale. 9.9 from me.

Beautiful work. He has a few mistakes, but they won't let him down. :)
I vote 8.9!

I guess you considered an A6M3 outside the contest scope? I wouldn't mind because this is a beautiful Rei-sen. Minor errors (as mentioned): colour of number (white?), antenna mast (none) and IFF stripes (?) - OK if that's so it would be easy to change, and doesn't diminish at all the excellent appearance of your model. 9.8 from me.

No worries about it being an A6M3, it looks fantastic! Nice photos as well, large and clear, the outdoor lighting lends a realistic look to the model. I like the last one with the evening light as well. A solid 9.8

This is a beautiful result in 1/72. Nice overall paintjob.
My vote: 9.5
