Readers’ Gallery: Tom Zahler’s 1/48 Hasegawa Aichi D3A1 “Val”


Agape forum member posted photos of this Val dive bomber he recently completed. Great work Tom!

After doing two armor builds and a ship build it was time to return to my roots…aircraft! This was a simple, quick and easy build. I have always liked the Val dive bomber as I watch Tora Tora Tora a lot. Yes I know that was not a real Val in that film but I still like the looks of it, maybe it was the fixed gear that reminded me of another cool dive bomber, the Stuka.
