Skins for JapanCat's new A6M Zeros as found in Ultra Pack 3 / Dark Blue World / TFM-412 / HSFX / CUP

Here are a couple of skin packs made for JapanCat's new and much improved A6M Zeros. If you have Ultra Pack 3 / Dark Blue World / TFM_4.12 / HSFX / CUP you will need these skins, since UP3 / DBW / HSFX / TFM_4.12 / CUP all use JapanCat's new improved 3D model.
A big thank you goes out to all the various skin authors, who are listed on their respective download pages and the skins themselves, especially Harpia_Mafra55, Rookie, Gumpy, 200th_Sakagawa, Sakai, eMeL and RDDR, who made most of these wonderful skins. Thank you all!  :)
And a big thank you goes to JapanCat for his excellent work on improving the Zeros!  :)
If anyone made other skins for JapanCat's Zeros, feel free to post links to your skin's page here. Thank you!

Regarding campaigns... you need to remove all skins for the old Zeros in order to avoid issues with compatibility.

If a skin doesn't work on the new Zeros, it is an old skin and you need to delete it. Don't leave it hovering in your Zero skin folders because it will cause issues.
If you download a campaign that includes skins for the old Zeros, do not install the included skins. The campaign will work perfectly fine as long as you don't install the old skins.
As long as you keep to this rule, you'll have no reason to experience any incompatibility problems with campaigns.  ;)

Also read the following tutorial, if you need to rectify any old campaigns that have markings disabled (with most campaigns this isn't necessary though) :

Here are a number of skin packs for the new Zeros including the A6M2, A6M3, A6M5, A6M7, A6M8 and A6M2-N. The A6M5 skins can also be used on the A6M7, since the only difference is the ejector ports. Be sure to check back periodically to see if new skins have been added to the list. Enjoy!

Yes. All these skins are for the improved 3d models found in UP3 RC4, HSFX 5 as well as DBW.   ;)

We need more skins, especially generic/blank ones. This ones are great but largely wasted in campaings since they have full markings.

The skins with markings are great for use on the player's aircraft in campaigns.

There are also a number of blanks here which I use for A.I. Zeros in campaigns.

But like you said... more skins are ALWAYS welcome. ;)


Here are some (but not all) of the blank skins here:

These are all A6M2 skins. It's only one A6M5 blank skin and this one has kill markings on the fuselage.  We need A6M3, -5 & -7 blank/generic skins for campaign building. Some of the skins already offered are fantastic but their blank versions are needed...

The breakdown of the blank skins / skins that are made to work with the standard IL2 markings are:

3x A6M5,    1x A6M-52NF,    3x A6M3,    1x A6M8,    5x A6M2-N,    9x A6M2

The A6M5 skins also work well on the A6M7, the only difference is the ejector ports.
