Article about the color of A6M2b


Recommended Posts

Perhaps the hottest topic I have seen discussed/debated on the internet about this kit is the best choice for the "amber grey" used on the IJN Zero's. As you would expect, Eduard did a LOT of research themselves on this topic and if this interests you, even a little, I would strongly recommend you have a read of the article "The Colors of Zero" by Marian Holly on page 48 of the Jan 2022 Eduard INFO magazine.

Personally I'm in the ameiro colour scheme camp. There's enough information out by highly knowledgeable people there to support the findings.

Besides which...... it's just such a cool colour! Who wants to fly a dull grey plane eh? 😅

Eduard is a marvellous source of highly informed articles. For anyone not familiar with them find them here:


And inline with Japanese markings here is an article (in Eduard) from October 2022. It's on the Tainan Kokutai markings.

Thank you for your additional information.
