If you really want details here the full scale. The panels lines and rivets are actually subtle.

My second ZERO, TF GS Zero. I repainted this aircraft. I didnt like the gray Monokote it came with. So, I sanded it with 600 grit paper and shot Rust-o-leum matte hunter green color on the top. Eliminated the wave pattern on the aft bottom fuselage since the real IHA-159 has the straight green paint scheme.

Nice job on the repaint, Mike. I think the IJN green is iconic, the tan just doesn't do it justice.

Regards,
Jeff

Mario, good seeing you and your friend this weekend at Warbirds of DE!
Also, thanks for flying with my buddy John, its his firsttime there, and he's just starting in the hobby. I think he really had a blast flying with you guys with his foamy hellcat.

btw, yes, the prop is wrong, hehehe, but I shall be painting it with matte brown, to make it historically accurate.

Jeff how are you? thanks for the kind words. Hows your FMS Zero flying? I still fly mine. A friend of mine John is into Hellcats & Corsairs and has been ragging on me on which one is the better flyer. So I should gout and fly more with him and show who can outturn who

Great work on the Zero Mike and that was an exceptional first landing.

Congrats
