Well here is my build blog for Eduard’s 1/48th Tora Tora Tora boxing of the Japanese A6M2 Zero Type 21 fighter.
Hopefully Rowan will be joining in at some point as I split the dual boxing with him.
After waiting a few days for some interior paints to arrive, I finally manged to start the cockpit.
As I mentioned in my review which can be found here,
Tora! Tora! Tora! - A6M2 Zero Type 21 over Pearl Harbor | AeroScale, the cockpit is a mix of plastic parts and photo etch and is very detailed.
In fact the cockpit is very fiddly to say the least.
I started with the seat arrangement, which has some nice harness’s in pre-coloured photo etch.
The rest of the cockpit, with the sidewall details took me all day to build, and I haven’t even started with the main instrument panel.
Detail is exceptional with a lot of P.E involved. If you don’t fancy using the P.E then Eduard have included decals or painting the side panels yourself as an alternative.
So current state of play is this.
