This was a good project for me. I continued to learn from my other builds and hoped that it shows on this model. Still had some issues with the wings, but I am improving. Good things these models are made from paper/cardstock and problems are easily fixed with a new printing of the parts. This is the last of my models that I used toothpicks without doing any modification to how it looks and fits with the wheels. Still it looks okay to me. Now I need to learn how to take a better picture.

Very nice job. Very clean and straight. I can't get over how nice the wings look.

Thanks for the comments. I was fortunate that everything came together very smoothly for this build. I have been using balsa wood sheets to strengthen the wings, as well as patience.

That's a great looking Zero. Much better than mine turned out. It crashed into the round file.

Coach is this one of your rebuilds? Like my first Piper Cub. I still know one day I will go back. Right now it all about that d**n C-47. wc

I never actually got back to it. I rushed it so badly that it was a mess. I got distracted by other pretty planes and never looked back.
