BigGrin Hi All
When the Zero was introduced to JIN service a great many of there Aircraft Carriers had been built to accommodate the aircraft being used at the time of building. So it was found that just having the wing tips folding up would allow the Zero to be used in any Aircraft Carrier then in service with a minimum of retooling and rework on the airframe.

Well, my Zero is bound for the Pacific Aviation Museum. The museum is located on Ford Island, in Pearl Harbor. I'm providing the complete display. All they have to do is provide the weight in the bottom of the pedestal.

It's gonna be cool!

Hi Andy,

As soon as I wrap up all the small stuff, I'll put up pics. I'm redoing a bit of stuff that I'm not quite happy with. A lot of it is caused by the odd build sequence.
