madcow Posted February 25 Share Posted February 25 Hi, I just ordered the new Academy Zero in 1/48th. The box indicates "The Battle of Midway 80th anniversary" and I wanted to build a Zero during that battle. Comparing the markings in the Eduard kit (Tora! Tora! Tora! boxing) with the ones in the Academy, I realised Academy offers some of the same markings present it the Eduard kit. My question is: did Academy offer the kit as "Battle of Midway" but included markings from the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941 or, as it is also possible, the aircraft maintained their markings and pilots from December '41 to June '42?
