I finished up on my Zero today. It is OOB with kit decals with the exception of PE seat belts. It is weathered with pastels oils and silver pencil. The hasegawa zeros are still nice in this scale. Now on to something else either a Phantom FGR.2 or a Smer Fulmar, I am still trying to decide! Hope that you enjoy this one.

Thanks,Geoff

Great paint job. I like how you kept the chipping and weathering to a minimum. Well done!

I dont like excessive chipping and all of the images I had of this aircraft did not show it. I am glad you liked it.

Man, I think you really nailed this build in so many ways. The overall look and finish is absolutely superb, and not overdone in any way. Dang, I wish I had that touch!

And the photography is good too.

I'm planning an FGR.2 Phantom in the near future as well. (Althougha fulmar in 'American' markings has been on the short list too... so many kits, so few lives.)

Cheers,

That looks just awesome - sharp thin canopy frames - subtle weathering - and great choice of markings, they look mighty sharp as well

I agree on the Hase Zero - still nice kits

Geoff that is a nice looking Zero!, I love the paint and subtle weathering. Is that pre-shading?

On the shots from the top it can easily pass for larger scale!!!
