Here's my version of the Hasegawa model of a Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero type 52.
I have used Eduards Photo Echings, a set I absolutely only will recomend for the experienced modeller, there's many nice things included, but it is also rather complicated compared to other Eduard PE sets I have seen or used, with many small fine (And delicate) details. I especially disliked the folding of the gunbreaches and found it unnessecary complicated, If I was to do this over again, I would use some resin gun breaches.

A view of the finished model.

Here it's shown how little of the engine actually is visible.

The wing armament is from medical syringes and a brass cooling cover.
