Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero: The Chrysanthemum and the Sword (II).

Magnificent piece of traditional Japanese watercolor artistry. This delicate drawing has usually been heralded as a propaganda interpretation of the Pearl Harbor raids. The variant and the colour of these Zeros seem at odds though; no Green Zeros over Pearl Harbor, all mainly Light Grey. The Green appeared later in widespread service.
