One of a few of my favorite planes of World War 2. The A6M2-N is a ZERO that was converted to a Float Plane. The Allies named them Rufe.

This is a Tamiya kit on 1/48 scale.

Great looking Rufe. The paint and weathering look good but I have one question.... How does that little trailer hold that thing up? :lol: :)
