Samurai Zero by hylajaponica Samurai Zero by hylajaponica
A6M5c Zero vs. F6F-5 Hellcat.
The marking shows Saburō Sakai's last plane, ヨ-137 Yokosuka Naval air group.

This would be the A6M.  It had 2 13MM Heavy Machine guns that replaced the usual rifle caliber 7.7 gun in the engine cowling.  An 2 13MMs in each wing with the 2 20MM guns in each wing.  My favorite version the A7M had armour plates in the windscreen, one for the pilor and self-sealing fuel tanks and also a water-methanol supercharger.  INCREDIBLE PICTURE!!  The A6M was built with more powerful Mitsubishi Kinsei engine.

Thought it was a Shiden-kai at first. Didn't know later Zeros had wing machine guns as well as cannons.

You have captured the raw beauty of these two machines, down to every last panel line and the battle scars that mark each aircraft.

Thanks!
I have depicted damaged Hellcats twice in my works, but I will get F6F as a leading actor some time.
