This book contains detailed instructions on building the A6M2 Zero Type 21 1/48 scale model aircraft from eduard 82212).
In addition to the kit’s instructions, the book also includes eduard's sets 481076 Landing Flaps and 481077 Misc. Can you imagine merging these instructions? Well, I’ve done that for you and more. I take the model kit instructions from eduard along with their aftermarket sets and break them up into individual steps.
The aftermarket steps are colored gray making them easy to skip if you just have the basic model. This book provides a detailed list of tools that I used to build this model, along with a list of paints. The actual instruction section contains 565 steps and 77 plus figures over 140 pages that tell you what to dry fit, glue, and/or paint for each individual piece. Each step instruction shows the source (i.e., either eduard or AM) along with a block to mark that you completed the step.
There are several pages of in-process photos with assembly tips and the final photos of my build for reference. This book is a great checklist to make your build go smoothly. Of course, you can feel free to use different tools, paint, weathering, etc. or even add your own diorama. I hope you find this book useful.
