Something a bit different: a 72nd scale Hasegawa A6M3 Hamp. This clipped wing version of the Zero was also known as the Zeke 32 and flew in the Solomon Islands where it's reduced range (due to a larger engine the fuel capacity was decreased) caused problems for Japanese pilots patrolling "the Slot". Eventually the Zero 32 was outclassed by newer allied fighters.

This kit which is a bit old went together fairly easily. Internal details are sparse and there are no wheel wells. Painting was done using a brush and watered down Tamiya Japanese Navy green over a base coat of Model Master SAC bomber tan.
