SET: UMI 1/32 A6M3 type 32 conversion
KIT #: 2
PRICE: $12.00
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Resin, US Shipping included

The second set from UMI Resins is this conversion to turn the Hasegawa 1/32 A6M5 into the clipped winged A6M3 'Hamp'. The set is quite simple and consists of a new cowling and new wing tips. I have to assume that the length of aluminum tubing is for the exhausts.

Typical of garage resin kits, you'll have to do a bit of clean-up as well as fill an air bubble hole or two, but really, nothing very strenuous and 10 minutes with super glue, accelerator and sand paper will fix things right up. All in all, a simple conversion set and you aren't charged a fortune for it, especially when you consider that shipping in the US is included in the price.
