This is the Revell Zero A6M5c that I chose to convert to a A6M2N from Nakajimi.
This demands several things, including a different engine cowl and exhaust and longer span wings, but I chose to use this kit, as the Doyushas, is intended for an early WW II machine, probably a Pearl Harbour plane.
All Rufe's were built at Nakajima who also built ordinary Zero's on licence.
Th convertion set from Horizon in VAC is pretty good and fits well. The Center float had some lead weight added held in place with filler to keep the nose down.
One of the small changes is the roolbar or crashbar behind the pilots head, in the Rufe it is missing as nobody would expect one of them to roll over.
