Top Flite Hollywood Zero


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Scored! I've been wanting one of these for decades, and last night, just happened to check EBay, once again, assuming no luck. But, there was one available, with 3 hrs left and no bids. I assumed someone would robo bid, so guessed what their max would be, and added 99 cents. Went to bed, and checked this AM, and I got it! The seller wants to see the build thread, and photos, and we've already chatted a fair bit. Now I need to pick out the coolest Hollywood Zero paint scheme, and order graphics from Callie. Surprised at all the AT-6s that got converted into Hollywood Zeros, so lots to choose from.

Doode you're a machine. A rare find, I don't think I've ever seen one except on a shelf a long time ago.

Enjoy!

Re: Top Flite Hollywood Zero

I know, and I got it for less than the standard TF AT-6 kits are going for. I'm stoked. Can't wait for it to arrive. This is the top runner so far, for colour schemes.

Re: Top Flite Hollywood Zero

Whew, I was starting to get really worried, seller suddenly disappeared, and never answered any emails for a week! It's now showing shipped, re-established communications with the seller, so all is good, just have to wait for it's arrival.

Re: Top Flite Hollywood Zero

You have to clue me in... what is so special about this particular kit?

Re: Top Flite Hollywood Zero

It only came out for a limited time, so it's rare. Also, it is a kit, of the conversions that were done to real AT-6 Texans, for movies like Tora, Tora, Tora. So people took a real AT-6, converted to look like a Zero, for the movies. A fake Zero, but they exist, and fly. Top Flite made a converted kit, to mimic that. So it's a true-scale fake Zero. I just find that really cool, and would drive any judge nuts at a scale contest! lol

Re: Top Flite Hollywood Zero

That's probably the best part of the kit!

Re: Top Flite Hollywood Zero

Kit has arrived! Mods include the canopy, cowl, nose, upper fuse, rudder, wing root, and wing tips. You essentially build 90% into an AT-6, and then swap out the instructions for the Zero addendum, and away you go. Great decals, but I'll probably get Callie to do a vinyl set for me.
