Going for the dinged and scratched look of the box art, or do you have something else in mind...?

Is this a new tool? If so it should be a real treat to build. There is something about a Zero that really appeals. Enjoy Monica.

It is the new tool (2011) kit Monica. The old Zero had rivet rash. It was reboxed last year in the Pearl Harbor scheme.

hi Joe and Barry, thank you for the info, could not find that any were ,that it was a retooled one,

well the 1st off the mth and reopened the box,

and made a start undercoated and started the cockpit,sorry phone camera hard to get close up with,

but to my horror ,I,discover no decals oh my :oops: :confused: so the cockpit is missing them
