HAWK 1/72 A6M5....Or, old kits need love too.

Wanted to try some new paints and what better kit to practice on than this. I used Mr. Color Nakajima Dark Green, Mr. Paint IJNAF Cowling black & IJNAF Propeller color and Tamiya IJN Grey. As much as I like Mr. Paint, the Mr. Color was easy to spray also....I like it. The stand is Alclad Gloss Black Primer and I put some weights on the underside then covered it with felt....don't want to scratch a desk! The Hinomaru's are from an old MicroScale sheet I picked up back in 198? at my old LHS and the tail code is from a Hasegawa kit. An easy, fun, quick build to practice on.
