Damn..and platz had announced the Zero 52 long time before...
Zero specialists there are many variants of Zero to be released?

Yes, but there are SO many other aircraft to do besides the zero! Man it would be nice to see a Spitfire Mk.V or a Typhoon IIB. or hey what about a I-16, La-5, IL-2 and the list goes on. How many different version of the zero does sweet do, 20?

Let's see... according to Wikipedia there were about 11,000 units produced between Mitsubishi and Nakajima between 1940 to 1945... that should keep them occupied for the next 500 years or so... :-)

BTW BD99, love the sarcasm in all the Sweet posts :-)))).

Aside from the N floatplane, that is pretty much all the major A6M variants covered now by Sweet. Personally I'm happy to see them done to this high standard.

This is awesome...my favourite Zero model! Nice.

Now we just need the A6M2 Model 11, A6M2-N, A6M7, A6M8 and the A6M2-K and A6M5-K 2 seat trainers and the collection will be complete.

Nice to see the -52, though even I am getting a bit tired of Zeros. Wanna bet they do the same with Bf-109's next?
