hi mike, she,s starting to look the part, doing a good job there that you are.Can you tell me how big the planes are on this one cos its hard to gauge. I only want to know cos I built a plastic one of these when I was a kid and I thought that was a big one.


Hi Moriaty,I have taken a photo with the plane near a penny, it will be a Zero when assembled it has approx 1.5 inch wingspan, I hope that helpsBigGrin Regards MikeBigGrin Cool

Amazing work, something to try to attain on my own model.

I'm glad i looked at yours before fitting my stern deck plate, it was sloping down and i thought it was faulty, but your diary showed it was alright BigGrin.

I must admit, i look at 2 build diaries for reference.....Mr T official one and yours.Blushing
I smile because i have NO IDEA whats going on :)
