Hi everyone!!

I'm back from Japan, this trip was definitely one of the most amazing a wonderful trips in my life. First I would like to thanks everyone is this forum who gave me excellent advices about of places to visit. I would like also to thank to all the Japanese people, for there kindness and friendship http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif.
Here you have some pictures from a real Zero fighter that I took while I was visiting Tokyo. To my surprise the plane look a little different from the IL2 model. Perhaps was only my impression of been next to such a beautiful bird. One thing that notice was that the landing gear seemed to be bigger and higher than I expected. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
What do you think?

......of course, all the best carrier A/C has super strong gear....they therefore cope best with getting on and off those static airstrips in game....lol

Nice pics. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

But this picture says it all:

Whoever runs this museum but the airplane in a spot which makes photographing it extremely hard. I mean not everyone has a wide-angle lens, geez. With a normal camera, the front must be impossible to photograph. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Couldn't they at least have put the plane in the middle of some large room so everyone can photograph it from various angles and actually get the whole plane in it? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

looks like it's in the middle of a car display sales floor. Care to kick the tires?

A Mitsubishi dealership maybe?


Oooops I almost forgot. Thanks for posting these shots. Glad you had a great time.
