Not the real McCoy but interesting to shoot just the same.

Nice angle on #1. Looks like you may have a minor case of dust on your lens or sensor..I've marked them below.

As an active contributor to my eyes have been trained to be extremely picky; actually, if you use the "Equalization" filter in Photoshop, it highlights dust spots that ordinarilly are hard to see.

if that's not a real Zero, it's a helluva good copy... most "fake" Zeros are based on the T-6 Texan trainer, which has some obvious differences, such as an oil cooler scoop on the left side of the engine cowling, a 2-bladed prop instead of 3, and different landing gear skirts. also, the windshield on the Texan is different, and the T-6 had no gun blisters on top of the cowling.... nice catch!

here's a photo of a real A6M3 for comparison...
